Length of Time with MR:

WELL I THINK I HAVE BEEN HERE SINCE ... SPRING OF 2000? SO IT'S FOUR YEARS SO FAR!

Brief description of how you came to MR:

A FRIEND OF MINE RECOMMENDED  ME I THINK ?

Best thing about working for MR:
THIS WORK GIVES A GOOD OPPORNITY TO MEET AND TALK WITH MANY OF YOUR FAVE BANDS AND PEOPLE IN "OFFICIAL" WAY ...

Worst thing about working for MR:
SOMETIMES IT'S REALLY HARD TO DEAL WITH SOME MR "DEADLINES" BECAUSE LACK OF TIME  ... FOR THAT REASON ... SOMETIMES IT TAKES MONTHS UNTILL SOME INTERVIEWS GET FINISHED ... OVERALL THERE ARE NO NEGATIVE THINGS HERE ..


How/when you first got into metal:
FOR ME IT STARTED WHEN I SAW PICTURE OF GENE SIMMONS IN MAGAZINE COVER BACK IN 1980. I WAS SOLD RIGHTAWAY! I WENT TO LOCAL MARKET AND MANAGED TO FIND KISS' FIRST ALBUM IN A CASSETTE FORMAT. THAT SOUNDED SO BRILLIANT FOR ME ..
AFTER THAT EXPERIENCE I STARTED TO SPEND MOST OF MY (lITTLE) MONEY FOR RECORDS. KISS WAS AND STILL IS THE MOST IMPORTANT BAND FOR ME AND FINALLY IN 1983 I SAW THEM LIVE IN OULU. THAT WAS MY FIRST REAL GIG EXPERIENCE. BESIDES KISS I STARTED TO LISTEN SOME OTHER METAL BANDS THEN: IRON MAIDEN, RAINBOW,SAXON,Y&T,WHITESNAKE BLACK SABBATH, HANOI ROCKS, DEEP PURPLE,ACCEPT,SCORPIONS,DIO ETC... AND SOON IT STARTED, "a HARD/GLAM ROCK INVASION" WITH LOADS OF GREAT BANDS: WASP,TWISTED SISTER,M?TLEY CRUE, RATT, DOKKEN, LOUDNESS, KROKUS ...

Favorite Metal Genre(s):
1.HARD ROCK: WITH NO DOUBT, MY FAVOURITE HAS ALWAYS BEEN HARD ROCK.

2.TRASH/SPEED/DEATH: THERE ARE LOT'S OF GREATS BANDS

3.POWERMETAL: I USED TO LIKE POWERMETAL A LOT WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT.  HELLOWEEN DID REALLY SOMETHING ORIGINAL IN THE BEGINNING ... AT THE MOMENT THERE ARE FAR TOO MANY SIMILAR BANDS IN THIS GENRE.


Least favorite Metal Genre(s):
1.BLACK METAL, I STILL CAN'T FIND ANYTHING GOOD FROM THAT ..
2.GRUNGE, FOR GOD SAKE .. THIS THING ALMOST KILLED ROCK IN THE BEGINNING OF THE 90'S
3.NU METAL,FRED DURST ... NEEDS NO MORE ... CRAP
