Juhana Tuomas Rantala "Pätkä"
Born on February 11, 1974 in Tampere (Finland), was the drummer of HIM from 1995 to1999.
He was nicknamed Patka because he had a friend named Pekka (Patka and Pekka are celebrities in Finland since they're characters of comedies) As a child, he lived in Riihimäki and Rovaniemi, then moved to Lappeenranta.Before joining HIM, he played with Slumgudgeon.While he was performing on Tavastia stage, he drew attention of Ville , Linde and Migè who were looking for a drummer and were impressed by his style. Both band were friends to the singer of Jimsonweed (Suho Superstar) and he gave Ville Patka's telephone number. Even though Ville was afraid to bring into the group someone who wasn't a long time friend , they met and after listening to HIM demo Patka decided to join the band.
In the summer of 1995 they recorded a demo including Stigmata Diaboli, The Phantom Gate e Wicked Game,that would become a big hit in the next years.
He organized the first HIM session in Tapanila and got the idea of signing up Juska as keyboardist.
He left the band before Razorblade Romance :in 1999. Patka was kicked out and learned of the news when he had already been replaced with another guy. There were a lot of reasons for his dismissal,his girlfriend was pregnant, but the most important was his excessive love for alcohol.
The whole situation made him to fall into a depressive state. He admitted that he could only read Futari, Finnish football magazine, in which there weren't Ville's pictures.
Nowdays Patka has got two children and works at Semifinal selling beer to thirsty customers.


Trivia: his favourite drink is the Saatanan Voitto (Satan's victory),made up by Migè and Patka himself. Spray some lemon on the glass rim and then put the sugar down. Fill the glass with Strohl o Yhden Tähden Jaloviina and drink.

Antto Einari Melasniemi

 

Immagine

 

Born on November 11, 1975 in Helsinki (Finland), was the keyboardist of HIM from 1995 to November 1998.
He approached music world playing different instruments, like saxophone and percussion, then he focused only on keyboards.
He lived his first five years in Helsinki, then he moved with his family in Järvenpää (about 30 km north of Helsinki). His father stayed in Helsinki and here Antto spent his weekends with friends. His brothers, Mika and Mali Turkka were artists too, they formed a duo playing traditional Finnish songs. Antto's cousin, Joel Melasniemi, was Ville's band mate in Donits-Osmo Experience.
He did the go between Ville and Antto, so they became friends. HIM needed someone who reproduced the sound of rain in their first demo, so Antoo started his career in Him taking care of backgrounds. "It was not planned that Antto became part of HIM, but it happened," said Ville. Because of his personality, his laziness and lack of method, he was expelled from the band and during his stay, he clashed with Ville because of Antto 's lack of seriousness.

Trivia: In the video Wicked Game, shot in Germany in a dark set, with rain, snow and girls with PVC pants, Antto appeared at the end, as a snowman. The director knew that there was a singer, a guitarist, a bassist and a drummer in the band, but nobody had told him that there was also a keyboard player, and that's why Antto does not appear in the video.


» After HIM
He worked in Amsterdam and then he moved to France, where he started a career as a chef.

Mika Kristian Karppinen

 


Born on 8 February 1971 in Eskilstuna (Sweden) he was Him drummer from 1998 till December 2014. After 16 years of faithful service, Gas Lipstick (one of his nickname, along with Gas, Kaasu, Gas Lipstick, Miksu, Mike Ceer, Baby Cognac, Buddha Cognac, Peter Hornström) admitted that his “heart was not in it 100% anymore,” though he made sure to stress there are no hard feelings between himself and the other HIM members.

Gas Lipstick released the following message on his personal Facebook page:

"FINAL WORDS

With a heavy heart I’m announcing my departure from HIM, a magnificent band that I’ve been part of for the past 16 magical years. It has been a journey that I will remember for the rest of my life. There is no drama, bad blood or any negativity involved in my departure.

I simply feel that it’s time for me to move on as a musician.

I have noticed during the final stages of our last tour that my heart was not in it 100% anymore.

I’ve always been a guy who played every note straight from my heart and I feel the music very strongly while I perform. If my heart feels that it’s time to let it go, then I have to listen because otherwise it wouldn’t be right towards myself, the rest of the band or you wonderful fans. It would end up being a forced effort and I can’t perform or create like that.

Another thing that I’ve recently started to miss is songwriting. I’ve always been a songwriter. I didn’t feel the need to write after I joined the band in 1999 and noticed that Ville is a tremendous songwriter. In my mind he has never brought a single half assed song to the practice room. Every song was top notch and I felt that I didn’t have the need to stir the mix. All of his songs were amazing as he presented them. But last fall I’ve started to feel that I’m missing writing again and that I would like to pursue my own musical interests. I started to miss the feeling of being in a band, where I could be one of the songwriters again.

Three years ago, I had a very heavy year with my arm problems and it took a toll on me. It took me 9 stressful months to get back into playing shape, but after recording the “Tears On Tape” record and performing 100 + live shows following the release of that record, I can safely say that I’m back 100% physically and mentally. Those 9 stressful months were one of the toughest periods I have ever experienced throughout my career and adding everything mentioned above, I feel that I need a change in life. I need a fresh start.

I have nothing but great words to say about my brothers: Ville, Mige, Burton, and Linde, our touring crew Viltsu, Antti, Manne, Sean, Brad and our management Seppo, Taina and Vuokko. I wish them nothing but a great success in the future! They are all amazing people and it has been a pleasure working with them all of these years. I’d like to as well thank all the record company people, promoters, past crew members, producers and engineers that I’ve had the privilege to get to know and work with. You rock BIG TIME!

And for the last but not the least important I’d like to thank all of you fabulous fans. Thank you for your never ending support and love. HIM has the best fans in the world! Without you, nothing would’ve been possible.

I hope that our paths will cross again eventually and you can count on that I’m going to keep you posted about my future endeavours in the crazy world of Musicland. Stay tuned!"

Cheers, Gas Lipstick.

HIM's crew

Seppo Vesterinen

Seppo Vesterinen is a Finnish producer, manager and rock music expert. He has been both Hanoi Rocks and The Rasmus' manager but at the moment he works with HIM. He's an ifluent person in the Finnish rock music scene and he's worked with all the most important Finnish bands except Nightwish. His career began in the 70's, as the producer of the Helsinki Festival. He also met international artists such as Frank Zappa, Weather Report and Andrej Wajdan. In 1974, he organized a show in Kaivopuiisto, one of the most famous parks in Helsinki, starting a tradition that still lasts.
During the autmun in 1980, he was asked to be Hanoi Rock's manager, so he started working in the glam rock, hard rock and glam punk scene of that period. Since the beginning, Versterinen noticed the band's skill so that according to him the success was assured. His hard word was rewarded with a great worldwide success but, despite his efforts, in 1985 the band split up. Though he's still in good friendship with both the singer Michael Monroe and the guitarist Andy McCoy.
Fro 1990 to 1995, Seppo temporary abandoned the music scene to produce theatre shows, festivals and cultural events, collaborating with both the Helsinki University and the school of fine arts.

Silke Yli-Sirniö

She's HIM's Mutti (mother in German), who takes care of everything about promotion, starting from interviews. She often goes on tour with them, to the interviews and the awards shows. Her career in the music scene started in Germany in the 80's as a DJ. From there, her way to promotion was short; indeed, in 1999 Silek started working in EFA, one of the most important promotional agency in Germany, working with bands such as Alternative Tentcles and Touch & Co. In 1993, she started working with the Finnish band Waltari, a job that smoothed her way to the management of other bands , for examples Hybrid Children e Suburban Tribe. She received the proper recognitions and the right experience to open her own agency ; Tough Enough Promotion. We can say that Waltari are almost a prelude to perhaps the most important and profitable assignment in her career. In 1997 Silke takes HIM into her agency and deals with their promotion in Germany and internationally. She also worked with other Finnish band : in 1999, Silke started her collaboration with Nightwish , bringing in several awards. At the same time, the Tough Enough Promotion begins its collaboration with the German label Drakkar Entertainment (BMG), taking care of the promotion for some of their band. Maybe her love for Finnish recording industry has been so strong that in 2005 Silke decides to relocate TEP in Helsinki. Since then, there is a long series of succesful collaborations : in 2006 Lordi win the Eurovision Song Contest in Athens, representing Finland, Negative have a big success in Europe with a sold out tour, and TEP takes also care of the promotion of 69 Eyes' album Angels. Since October 2007, Silke also deals with the independent label Nuclear Blast and Finnish bands of the alternative country scene.

Tiina Vuorinen

From: Synnin Viemaa.
"When Katja put the EP on my desk I listened to it right away, which I never do. I thought that was the band of the radio and promised to take the boys under my wing, if they would like . Later I met them and realized they were really excited. Patka was the only one whom I spoke to . The others were too shy and stared at their shoes all the time. When I knew them better, I noticed that Ville was very serious in his work and seemed older than his age. Every time I had in mind to tell him something, he had already said and I could only say yes!"


She is Seppo's ex wife and the first HIM manager. In 1994 , after their first performance at Tavastia and after having listened to Wicked Game at the radio , she contacted the band. Later she passed the band's management to Seppo.
