Nightwish mainman Tuomas Holopainen answered a number of fan-submitted questions on video recently, and both the questions and his answers will surprise you. He talks about his love of movie soundtracks, how long he's gone without touching a keyboard, which Nightwish song he'd pick as the one to represent the band's work, culture shock he's experienced on tour, whether he'd rather be a superhero or an evil genius, and more. (Note: This is the first part of a 30-minute interview, the rest of which will be uploaded in a few days.) Enjoy!
