Stratovarius Drummer Quits After One Week

STRATOVAIUS's new drummer Anders Johansson (HAMMERFALL) has quit after one week in being the band, he's the statement from frontman Timo Tolkki:

"Anders gave me a call and said that he doesn't want to join the band permanently and that he is happy to be in HAMMERFALL playing True Metal. Since I am looking for a permanent member, we agreed in good spirits to go separate ways. I am very disappointed that he didn't want to join STRATOVARIUS permanently, but at the same time I wish him and the HAMMERFALL guys well and best of luck with their career. I suspect that the decision of Anders has something to do with my reputation. I can understand him very well, I wouldn't join a band in which I would be playing in. I have already contacted a Finnish drummer and I hope I can announce his name very soon."

In Metal, Timo Tolkki"
