Valo: 'I Was Beaten Up By A Girl'


HIM VILLE VALO

HIM frontman VILLE VALO was almost forced to cancel his band's first major American tour after his ex-girlfriend beat him up.
The 30-year-old rocker was given a black eye by his former partner and suffered a burst ear drum at the hands of the unnamed woman.
He says, "She was a tough girl and she wasn't afraid to show it. She once punctured my ear-drum by screaming so loudly in my ear that it bled from the inside. If the hole in my ear had have been any bigger, I'd have had to go for surgery and our band would have missed their first major American tour.
"Violence is always pretty bad but it doesn't get any worse than being beaten up by a girl, does it?"

Valo Depressed By Songwriting


HIM VILLE VALO

HIM rocker VILLE VALO is considering quitting the music industry because songwriting turns him into a suicidal wreck.
The Finnish rocker admits penning his band's dark songs drives his depression and he can only envy those who find the process cathartic and therapeutic.
He says, "You open the door for the demons, and everything just f**king comes out.
"Now the meltdowns are getting worse, and the depression won't go away; it's like being haunted by the most vile creatures ever created.
"I've had depression before, but when you're so overwhelmed that it's taking you over... I just don't know if I'm prepared emotionally or mentally to write another song."
Valo's bandmates and friends were so concerned about the frontman's mental health they implored him to seek help - and applauded him when he checked into celebrity rehab facility Promises in California.
Producer Tim Palmer, who produced HIM's new album Venus Doom, knew the singer needed rehab help - because he realised Valo was becoming more like his late brother, who committed suicide.
He adds, "When somebody gets that low, it is so important to find a friend or doctor or family member and just get help. Ville took a massive step by coming clean to me and just admitting to these feelings."

Valo Dreams Of Fatherhood


VILLE VALO

HIM frontman VILLE VALO believes he has the qualities to be an excellent parent, but commitments to his band are preventing him from being a father.
The Finnish rocker says the prospect of leaving his children at home while he goes on tour is delaying the baby-making process.
He says, "I love kids. A lot of my friends have been having them. I think we have reached that age.
"If I was a father I would like to be around for the kid and that isn't possible in the band at the moment as we're traveling so much.
"I'd be a hell of a dad. I've got a good sense of humour, good music taste and I collect toys and cartoons.

Valo's Cigarette Mountain


VILLE VALO Mark Lanegan

Finnish VILLE VALO smokes an astonishing 21,900 cigarettes a year, to give his voice a gruff, husky "edge".
The eccentric HIM frontman smokes 60 cigarettes every day, and insists the dangerous habit is an essential tool for him.
Valo says, "That's how many you need to smoke to give your voice an edge. A guitar player has an effects pedal that he uses to make his guitar sound like he wants. For me my effects pedal is a packet of Marlboro Red.
"I went from sounding like a choirboy to sounding like Mark Lanegan."

Valo Drinks To Ease Attacks


HIM VILLE VALO

HIM frontman VILLE VALO became an alcoholic after he discovered drinking helped him cope with the panic attacks he began suffering while working in the studio. The 29-year-old Finnish star refers to himself as an on-off alcoholic but is determined his problem will never get out of hand. He says, "Look I'll be honest. What happened was, in 2003, while we were recording LOVE METAL, I started having panic attacks. I got so scared of them, I had to have two pints of beer just to be able to get into a taxi. "I still suffer from that but I'm getting better. I've always taken things further than anyone else in the band. I've been... diving into some deep ditches. "But not so far that the others haven't been able to drag me out."

Valo: 'I Don't Know If I Was Raped'


VILLE VALO HIM

Finnish rocker VILLE VALO is unsure if he was raped after being given a date rape drug and robbed in a bar in Minneapolis last October (05).

But the HIM frontman insists it would serve his attacker right if he was sexually assaulted - because he was suffering an uncomfortable condition at the time.

Valo explains, "At that point I had a horrendous case of haemorrhoids - which often happens on tour - so it would have served that particular party right if they had taken their wicked way with me.

Valo Slams Rock Fans Afraid To Embrace Him


HIM VILLE VALO Korn Limp Bizkit Slipknot

HIM frontman VILLE VALO has slammed his band's detractors as macho chauvinists living in the past.

The Finnish rocker believes the reason why so many rock fans dislike HIM is simply because they are afraid to embrace their feminine side.

He says, "I can accept that not everyone is going to like us, not everyone likes red wine but that doesn't make it a bad drink. Maybe it's that we are not Korn and Limp Bizkit who sing songs about nothing but still try to be angry.

Valo's Tattoo Terror


VILLE VALO

Finnish rocker VILLE VALO once got so drunk he had his bottom tattooed and the pictures splashed across his nation's newspapers.

The hedonistic singer had to share his embarrassment with the entire country after the booze binge went too far.

He says, "We got tattoos on our a*s cheeks saying 'Nidiot'. It's an old inside joke, and the guy put the pictures on his internet site and some of the tabloids in Finland got them, so they had a spread of my a*s in some tabloid. I was laughing my a*s off. Literally. But you know, everybody's got an a*s."

Valo Victim Of Drug-Assisted Robbery


HIM VILLE VALO

HIM frontman VILLE VALO fell victim to a brazen robbery after his drink was spiked in a Minneapolis, Minnesota, bar during his recent US tour - and he has vowed to stay sober ever since.

The Finnish rocker was drinking with strangers the evening before a gig (21OCT05) when the drugging took place, leaving him suffering minor injuries and with his pockets cleaned out.

And the singer is now so terrified of a repeat incident, he is staying off alcohol for the foreseeable future.

Him Enjoy Group Masturbation


HIM VILLE VALO

Finnish metal band HIM prefer to indulge in group masturbation sessions rather than succumb to the allure of groupies, because they are scared of bedding a transsexual by mistake.

Frontman VILLE VALO claims that joint viewing of pornographic channels on hotel televisions keeps their sexual desires at bay, and avoids any band members getting into embarrassing situations.

Valo says, "There's always temptation, but it's not hard to resist.
