The good news is that I get to see Kai Hansen and Gamma Ray when they pass through Toronto. :-)

I hope you meant "Helloween is so underrated"

Its sad though, all these people have heard of bands that have Helloween as an influence, but they've never even heard of the band that practically shaped Power Metal into the great genre it is.

I just thought Id bump this thread to post an email I recieved from ex-Helloween guitarist Roland Grapow. Most of it has to do with Roland's new band, Masterplan, but there's bits in there about Helloween.

My original message to Roland was:
Quote:
Hey Roland, my name is Trevor Norris and Im a 15 year old guitarist from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Ive followed Masterplan for a while now and I've noticed that, like most other european metal bands, Masterplan has not yet played any Western Canadian dates, or any Canadian dates at all for that matter, Im curious as to if you plan on coming to Western Canada in the future and if its something that you and the other members of the band would like to do. There are MANY metal fans out here, opposite of what most people think, Stratovarius and Sonata Arctica recently played here and supposedly put on tremendous shows (Sadly, I was unable to attend either of them).

I've been big fan of yours and Uli Kusch's since first hearing The Dark Ride which showcased, in my opinion, some of the greatest song writing (My favorites being The Departed, Mr. Torture and The Dark Ride) in all of Power Metal. Though the album was criticized by many for being too dark, I feel that it was one of Helloween's greatest. What kind of thoughts did you have while writing your material on The Dark Ride? Usually when Im writing songs, I write about things that are important to me, and usually my songs are written after an arguement or a rough day.

I have one last question for you; What kind of advice do you have for me as a guitarist?

Thanks for your time,

Trevor "Wrathchild" Norris


His reply:
Quote:
Hi Trevor

we would love to play in the US and Canada......but we don't want to loose too much money.

you know, we have to live from our music......but downloading kills our income a lot. time is hard!

first we have to pay to get a working visa for each member and crew member. than the flight tickets ,hotel ,food,

all in all we have to make for 3 shows around 15,000 dollars......which is not possible I guess.

in Europe and South America we have many people coming to the shows, Japan is a hard territory right now as well, but the ticket price is so high that it is ok again. we try hard to get a chance maybe with another band together makes more sense.

The dark ride? I had a terrible time when we wrote the songs, the bandmembers hated each other so much, just Roy Z. kept it together...

he was the only guy supporting and helping my song writing.. since than we are good friends.

for my taste...the dark ride reflected the band situation at that time very good,

honestly I love the album and production. I played some of my most tasty solo parts there and always said to myself....I?m very proud to finished my Helloween career with a good + strong album.

advice for a guitar player??? I just tell you what I was missing a little in my career..... find a great guitar player and get lessons from him.

specially about melody/harmony and song structure....... just a good song makes a good guitar player......

I don't care about shredding and technical scales anymore....try to get a good tone and style...... play melodies you could whistle, which

people can remember or sing along with.... playing crazy, or technical and wild is also great to have some different styles.......

but don't play just to impress other guitar player..........they are not buying the albums haha

I learned everything by myself and from other band members mostly when I was 15 till 20...

I had 3 month private harmony lessons from a Spanish guitar player, it was very helpful, but I was already in Helloween, haha long time ago.

take care and hope to see you on tour in Canada

yours, Roland

I've seen them live 14th februari... so damn awsome to see my favourite band live...

What I didn't espect was that Ronald didn't play a lot of solo's... I've always seen him as leadguitar... Sacha played almost all of the solo's (good thing 'cause we stood right in front of him...)
