Timo Tolkki - Interview

It's a pleasure, an honour and a privilege to have Timo Tolkki here on Given to rock.  
I grew up with his music with classic Stratovarius albums like Visions and Episode, for sure two of the greatest and successful Power metal albums of the '90s and for sure 2 of my favourites. I think he needs no further introduction as everybody knows Timo and his career, right? 

In this live interview, Timo and I talked about his next solo album release, called Union Magnetica with great names as special guests already confirmed (Caterina Nix, Rob Rock, Ralph Scheepers, Jens Johansson and Jari Kainulainen, but more to come) and which will be released in November for Wanikiya records.

Timo also shared some great memories of the Gods of metal 1998 (including crazy backstage activity) with bands like Black Sabbath or Pantera. We also talked about guitars (well, not much), lockdown, underrated songs of his catalogue, his favourite Italian pasta, the experience of touring in the UK and much, much more. 

(We had some technical issues, go to minute 9 if you want to skip the initial drama of broken conversation)
