New Bass Player / July 2005

Stratovarius changes Bass Player

Long-time bass player Jari Kainulainen has left Stratovarius. There is no drama or bad blood. Jari just doesn't have it in his heart to tour this heavily anymore.

Jari is not dropping out of the scene, he will continue to play metal.

The new bass player is Lauri Porra. He is 27 years old and a native of Helsinki, Finland. He looks like this. He has previously played with Sinergy, Warmen and Kotipelto.

Says Lauri: "I'm very honored to be invited to play with Stratovarius and follow in the steps of such a great bass player as Jari. I'm really looking forward to going on the road with Stratovarius, to meet some old friends, and to hopefully make lot of new ones."

Here is a fresh picture of Timo Tolkki, Lauri Porra and Timo Kotipelto.

Here are links to the photos in various sizes for press and other interested parties:

The cluster we are on at Dreamhost has lately had a few issues (1 2 3) As of Fri Mar 9 05:00:01 2012 GMT, server was up 172 days, 18:56. Load average last minute was 1.42, last five minutes 2.05, last fifteen minutes 2.22. Load averages over 20 will make everything here very sluggish.
