Joni, I don't think Awa was in the band just for money and such things... If she was in just for these advantages, she would still be in the band. Yeah, they are going to record a new album with Michael Wagener! Honestly, I think money helps of course for many things but what's wrong with earning a living with the music you make? Isn't it the most wonderful job for a musician? I think each Lordi member is primarly in the band because of their love for music. But what's wrong with these advantages? Yeah, you do what you love to do and it's quite normal for a musician to have such advantages to meet some other bands when they play in the same festival for example. After all, they do the same job : music!

Here is my best Awa memory, when she showed us the daddy sugar she bought before "Who's Your Daddy" in Paris.

Translating the link Joni posted:

Awa told yesterday about leaving the band and playing the last gig with Lordi in Rovaniemi Simerock on August 11.

"Playing in Lordi has been very wonderful experience, clearly the best time of my life. I've always liked Lordi very much, its music and image and will follow their doings later," she told.

"Lordi-crew was and will be like a second family and will miss the band and the fans. 7 years in the band has still been physically and emotionally very demanding and wearying. I have to give 100% in the band. If it doesn't work out, you have to let go and give a space for something new.

Leena Peisa, 33, who is behind Awa's character, told Iltalehti what made the decision to finish. Falling in love with an Italian man played a major role in the decision.

"7 years I've been involved in with it. I met my current boyfriend after 2006 Eurovision victory in Europe tour, where he played in Lordi's warm-up band. That's where our friendship began, but now it's the love."

Peisa lives most of the time in Ancona, Italy.

He remembers that the time in Lordi was very cool.

Also playing in the mask was a drawback.

"My eyes were irritated because of the contact lens used and the sultry mask caused a rash. I remember the time being very cool. I met many world stars, like Metallica members and Muse stars."

I'll try to get the paper version of Iltalehti from somewhere after the weekend (can't go to buy it right now, sorry) and translate it if someone hasn't done that already at that time. If someone has a scanned version, I'd appreciate to have a link to it, I'm interested to read it myself as well.

I'm sorry on behalf of fella monster Joni. I wouldn't want anybody to have an impression of Finns being arrogant for knowing their native language. :( Peace 'n love, everyone.

Oh don't worry we don't mind that of Finnish. I have a lot of finnish friends and they are all except arrogant, it's even more contrary

I somewhere "tease" a bit Joni, I mind what I told about him but I think he know that I still don't hate him, somewhere I should miss him if he shouldn't be there even I'm far to be his fans :mrgreen:

Hah. :lol: Sorry if I was arrogant but Im just not good translater. :wink: And didnt wanted "copy paste" the story just before buying the magazine. But here is full story:

"Awa valitsi rakkauden
Italialaismieheen rakastunut Awa jättää bändinsä, viisuvoittaja Lordin.


Juha Veli Jokinen (juhaveli.jokinen@iltalehti.fi)

Eron taustalla on myös rakkaus italialaismuusikkoon. Leena asuu jo suurimman osan vuotta Italiassa Anconan kaupungissa. Viimeisen kerran yhtyeen rivissä Awa soittaa 11. elokuuta Rovaniemen Simerockissa.

– Lähden haikein mielin, ilman mitään riitaa. Inspiraatio nyt vain loppui. Seitsemän vuotta olin mukana. Tapasin nykyisen poikaystäväni Cosimon , 35, Ateenan viisuvoiton jälkeen vuonna 2006 Euroopan kiertueella, missä hän soitti Lordin lämppäribändissä. Se oli aluksi ystävyyttä, mutta nyt jo rakkautta, Leena sanoo.

Leena aikoo jatkaa uraansa muusikkona, mutta tällä kertaa ilman naamiota.

Aikaa Lordin kanssa Awa muistelee upeana, vaikka raskas meikki ja naamio toi vuosien varrella naiselle terveysongelmiakin.

– Silmäni ärtyivät jatkuvasta piilolasien käytöstä ja hiostava naamio aiheutti ihottumaa. Muistelen aikaa upeana jaksona. Tapasin monia maailmantähtiä, kuten Metallican soittajia ja Musen jäseniä.
Ei rikastunut

Tekikö viisuvoittaja
Lordissa rahaa ?

– Rahaa tuli ja meni. Asuntorahoista tienattiin kyllä vain käsiraha. Lordilla on niin raskas ja kallis koneisto, että ei tästä paljoa nettoa, tämä on elämäntapa, Savonlinnassa lomaileva Leena kertoo.

Porvoosta kotoisin oleva Leena suunnittelee myös valmistuvansa valtiotieteiden maisteriksi Helsingin yliopistosta.

Mr. Lordi on pahoillaan Awan lähdöstä, mutta ymmärtää kosketinsoittajansa ratkaisun.

– Valintoihinhan elämässä vaikuttavat muutkin asiat kuin vain musiikin teko. Rukoilimme Awaa jäämään, mutta ei. Uusi kosketinsoittaja on jo valittu ja hänkin on nainen, Lordi paljastaa mökiltään Kemijoen varrelta, missä mies tekee jo uusia asuja yhtyeelle.

Lordi matkustaa syksyllä Yhdysvaltoihin äänittämään uuden levyn lauluja.

– Sama tuottaja Yhdysvalloissa tuottaa nyt jo toisen levymme peräkkäin, Mr. Lordi kertoo."

Didn't claim you were, I just wanted to apologize on your behalf whether you were or not. I wouldn't want anybody to be offended by something like this. Apparently I misunderstood the joking/teasing between you guys. My bad. :wink:

Thankyou Joni so much for posting the article! I'll work on it right now.

Awa chose love
Awa, fallen for an Italian man, will leave her band, the Eurovision-winning Lordi.

Juha Veli Jokinen (juhaveli.jokinen @ iltalehti.fi)

The separation is also rooted in the love for an Italian musician. Leena already resides most of the year in Ancona, a city in Italy. Awa plays the for last time as a member of the band in August 11th, at Simerock of Rovaniemi.

- I am leaving rather wistful, without any dispute. Inspiration just came to an end now. For seven years I was involved. I met my current boyfriend Cosimo, 35, after the victory in Athens on the European tour in 2006, where he was playing in Lordi's support band. It started out as friendship, but now it's love already, says Leena.

Leena intends to continue her career as a musician, but this time without the mask.

Awa recalls the time with Lordi glorious, even if the heavy makeup and a mask brought her also some health problems over the years.

- My eyes got irritated by continuous use of contact lenses and the sultry mask caused rash. I recall this as a glorious period of time. I met many world famous stars, such as musicians of Metallica and members of Muse.

TBC

Silly ol' me, didn't realize this was almost the same thing that _eesti999_ had already translated. Oh well.

Didn't get rich

Did the Eurovision winner make money in Lordi?

- Money came and went. From the housing money we earned actually only the deposit.* Lordi has so heavy and expensive machinery that one wont net much from this, this is a way of life, says Leena who is spending a holiday in Savonlinna.

Leena, who is from Porvoo, is also planning to graduate with Master's degree in political science from the University of Helsinki.

Mr. Lordi is sorry for Awa's departure, but understands the decision of his keyboardist.

- Choices in life are affected by other things than just music making. We prayed Awa to remain, but no. The new keyboardist has already been selected and she is a woman too, Lordi reveals from his cottage located by the Kemi River, where the man is already underway with new outfits for the band.

Lordi is going to travel to the United States in the autumn to record songs for a new album.

-The same producer in the United States is now producing already the second album in a row, Mr. Lordi says.

END

There u go. That was a bit tricky one.


* "Asuntorahoista tienattiin kyllä vain käsiraha."
She isn't very precise in her words here. I guess she means that band members only earned enough to pay a deposit for a typical house, which is max 4 % of the total price of the house (in Finland).
