And the guitarist of Stratovarius goes insane!

    Guess who just took nervous breakdown for $500, Jim!

    After a lunatic rant on God and Kabbalah by Tolkki appeared on the Stratovarius site yesterday, the webmaster of the site gave this to the press:

    "Today I received a phone call from Timo Tolkki. He sounded like being in a very confused state of mind and was talking about red Kabbalah ribbons and how when he was reading Madonna's biography he felt warm waves all over his body and that the spirit of Jesus entered him and that now he really has found something he has been searching for all his life.

    I am very worried about him, he sounded like completely crazy. From this day onwards I will not take the responsibility of whatever is being released on this website.

    As long as my paycheck arrives, I will continue putting on the site whatever Tolkki asks me to put there. But there is nothing I can do about it. I just work here."

    Strato has been stuggling with members lately, the singer Kotipelto and drummer Johansson who have been in the band for a decade left after some quarrels and Tolkki has announced recently that the new singer is a finnish female one, and the drumstool will be manned by Johansson's brother. I guess this could mean the end of the band.
