    The best part of CoB was always Roope. It was always kind of an awesome heartwarming story that Alexei had started a band and got one of his childhood heroes in the other guitar spot. Stone isn't super big in the US compared to Scandinavia, but it was cool to see him still out there having fun with an entirely different generation.

    It wasn't poser shit like Machine Head either. Where some legit 80s thrash guys went on to write poser music. CoB wasn't my absolute favorite style of music, but they had a lot of fun songs and were a legit ripping band on a ton of levels, even if I wasn't crazy about their direction on some of the later stuff.

    I also like his playing better than Alexei's. Alexei is a sick player, but we already have Yngwie, so I'm not that crazy on his style. Roope is a ripper.

    Pretty much single handidly responsible the absolutely massive Jackson fanbase in many parts of Scandinavia too. Roope is the reason that a lot of the most bitching US Jacksons from the 80s end up in Scandinavia. People associate that style of Rhoads more with Alexei now, but the only reason he played them in the first place is because Roope played Rhoads like that in Stone. The dude has great taste in guitars and tones and is funny as fuck.



    That dude is a blast too. He's like the Scandinavian Chris Holmes with his shit slightly more together. I love watching his interviews.

    Also, Roope knows how to do some truly killer solos. I fucking love his guest solo on this track.

    Sad to see him leave CoB.

    The guy is fucking pathological. The part that absolutely DESTROYED me (other than his terrible singing) is him saying that the biggest issue getting another vocalist was finding a singer "in the scene" that can pull it off. Bruh, there are fucking hundreds of singers that can pull off the material, it's that you can't find anyone can, and also needs the gig enough to put up with a fucking twat like you. Come the fuck on.

    You're not wrong there. You should hear some of the singers who've either left because he's a cunt, or been sacked because he's a fucking sociopath

    I mean, I've worked with primadonnas before. And you know, honestly sometimes it's worth it if they're a real talent because even the worst I've worked with knew how to get out of their own way. I mean, first and foremost, a primadonna wants to actually be out performing their material and being successful.

    This guy is a fucking nutcase. We're going 2-0 on this guy choosing that he'd rather look like a clown than put his ego aside for two seconds to play with any competent musicians and do his music any justice. I don't think you can overlook the fact that singer is typically the centerpiece of the band and his ego is so huge that he likely couldn't stomach somebody in the band that gets more attention than him.

    Almost as funny is the point at 10:15 where he all but compares himself to Freddie Mercury.

    If he practiced, he'd be a reasonably good singer for quieter music, but there's no way his voice will be able to do metal. You can hear him straining on everything in that video. Assuming his "band" actually gets gigs, he'll blow out his voice in a matter of weeks.

    Alexi and Roope first worked together in Sinergy, which was a far better band than CoB--mainly because I'd much rather listen to Alexi's ex-wife try to be a metal singer than listen to the gargling nonsense that emanates from Alexei's throat. Kim Goss actually became a pretty decent metal singer by the last Sinergy album. It's a shame they broke up and cancelled the fourth album.
