Best bass solo:I mostly get the best kicks from straight 8th´s played with an infernal groove but - as far as the more flashy stuff goes - I have to say that Jari Kainulainen has insane stuff going on whatever context he plays in - go and see him live!
Best gig: Tarot at Pakkahuone 2004 / Kotipelto at Lutakko 2002.
Dream: To be able to express myself musically without feeling limited by my technique etc. Would be also cool to get a job at some point, though.
Hobbies: Studying takes most of my time. Apart from that, I spend my time mostly watching tv series / films, reading, occasionally in sports activities (jogging, badminton) and at the moment I have a serious effort to start role playing again. There are also some reports about me hanging out in pubs.
