Lordi Drummer Dies
2012-02-15 by fish CONTRIBUTOR | 45 Comments

Tonmi Lillman, the drummer for Finnish glam rockers Lordi, has died aged 38. The cause of
death has not yet been revealed.

Tonmi joined Lordi in 2010, taking on the pseudonym 'Otus', after the band's previous
drummer was fired. He was also a former member of the bands Sinergy and To/Die/For, as well
as being a member of Kylähullut along with Children of Bodom frontman Alexi Laiho.

Lordi became renowned when they won Eurovision in 2006.

Editing my original comment, because he wasn't even the drummer for Lordi when they recorded "Hard
Rock Hallelujah". Just an R.I.P. then.

Yeah, the song itself was quite bad, but the whole idea of a bunch of masked metallers from Finland winning the Eurovision of all events was funny as hell. And their album material has always been rather decent.

Yes, he wasn't, but it doesn't change the fact that Lordi as a collective won the event.
