Lordi drummer Otus, real name Tonmi Lillman, also acclaimed drummer for To/Die/For and Sinergy, has died at the age of 38.

No cause of death has yet been revealed. The band have made a statement which reads as follows:

"Our dear friend and band mate, “Otus” Tonmi Lillman, has sadly passed away.

"He will be greatly missed and we send our condolences to his family and friends.

"Otus: we thank You from the bottom of our hearts for the short time we got to know you and spend with you together.

"Rest in peace, friend."

Lordi made history in 2006 by winning the Eurovision Song Contest with a record 292 points, becoming the first Finnish performer to win the contest and the first Metal band to lift the trophy with 'Hard Rock Hallelujah'.




NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
