28/07/2012 TROY DONOCKLEY: The Nightwish interview

Date Published: 28-07-2012

As I have written on a number of occasions in these pages, my younger stepdaughter Olivia has never been particularly impressed with my taste in music, and considers everything that I write about to be hippie hogwash. That being said, she really likes Mimi Page's album and I keep on forgetting to tell her that 'im who plays the Celtic pipes in Nightwish is also one of ours. I know that Nightwish are one of her particular favourites, and so she has probably read this interview before, because I lifted it from their website...

1. How did you first get involved with Nightwish and were you a fan before you worked with them?

I first became aware of the band when my friend Pip Williams sent to me the album "Once". I had never heard of them, but then again, my connection to the world of metal was slight to say the least. I knew after hearing "Ghost Love Score" that this was no ordinary metal band. It had a really progressive and pure approach : But still heavy as hell!
Not long after, I was approached to play on "Dark Passion Play" and the rest as they say is history...
