October 10, 2012, 4 years ago
On October 5th, Noisecreep.com spent the afternoon with NIGHTWISH keyboardist/songwriter Tuomas Holopainen at Disney California Adventure experiencing some of the new attractions including Luigi's Flying Tires, and a couple of Holopainen's favorites (most notably the California Screamin' roller coaster and Soarin' Over California flight simulator). Throughout the day, Holopainen shared just what it is about the vision of Walt Disney that inspires him on such a deep level. As you'll hear him describe in the video below, he's also in the midst of a new solo project that is directly inspired by one of his favorite Disney stories. He even keeps a guesthouse in Finland that is filled with his own collection of Disney artifacts and memorabilia, a hobby he has had since he was a little boy.
