Everybody, please welcome and treat Rolf as a new dreamer."

I've been played with him almost my entire life and of course i´m sad that this happened right after band´s first real steps…but the life goes on and four of us will continue this with Rolf…and we will continue this proudly! There is only one thing i need to say : Ville, we created something awesome, THANK YOU MATE! Let´s go and get drunk again."
