Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
My first love in music came from beautiful Finland. It was Nightwish. Together with The Rasmus, Evanescence, Linkin Park, System of a Down, Metallica, Within Temptation and others they raised my love of rock music. Although my favorites have essentially changed since then, it's always a pleasure to listen to the good old songs I used to love so much
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
