October 21, 2009, 10 years ago
Finnish symphonic power metallers NIGHTWISH have issued the following update:"Nightwish is showing respect for Finnish singer/songwriter veteran Jaakko Teppo by recording his song 'Hilma Ja Onni' in Finnish. Jaakko Teppo is well known in Finland of his humorous protest songs associated with the labor movement. 15 years ago a serious illness forced Jaakko Teppo to withdraw from the stages. Today many of the brightest stars in Finland are honoring Jaakko Teppo’s legacy for Finnish music culture by recording his songs on tribute album Pörsänmäen Sanomat. Nightwish's rendition of 'Hilma Ja Onni' is available on iTunes and CDON.COM and the album Pörsänmäen Sanomat – Tribuutti Jaakko Tepolle can be ordered through www.fanzone/jaakkoteppo. The profit of the sales is directed to Jaakko Teppo. Thank you for your support!"
