MEET THE TEAM!

Background information from Jari Asell:

I first met K.K. in 1986 at Fuel For Life Tour in Helsinki, Finland. Over the years we met in various occasions, e.g. at gigs, airports, pubs. We made a close friendship and since 2001 I suggested K.K. to have site of his own. Finally october 2006 he asked me to help with the site. It took me ten minutes to build up a team: The Millworkers!
