Interview: Ambassadors Of Eternity
What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today?
Sammy: My father is a big music addict, and he has lots of vinyl’s at home, He listened lots of band called ELO (Electric Light Orchestra) and when I heard drum fill intro of a song called Twilight, that was it, I wanted to be a drummer, and I started to play drums. When crewing up I found new favorites, rockabilly bands like Matchbox and Stray Cats aso. Then one day my sister got home with a brand-new Iron Maiden, The Number Of The Beast album, everything changed, my hair started to crow from all over and I got to play drums in my first band.
I would have played more Ice hockey if I would not spend all my time in training with my band.
What do you like to do when you are not playing music and how does that influence your creativity?
I work a lot so when I have a free time I like to spent it with my family.
How long has your band been around?
Active about 2 years
Where are you based out of and how did that influence your music?
Uusimaa, Finland, I don’t see that influencing our music.
How did you come up with the name of your band and what does it mean to you?
I had this band name years before this band came to be, I have had a jacket for decades that has a painted picture of Cult`s Sonic Temple album cover, below it is a text that I came up with “Ambassadors of Eternity” I just think that music lives over eternity and musicians are the ambassadors.
Tell me about your most memorable shows.
With AOE they are still to come.
What is some advice that you would give to someone who is just getting into playing in a band and some advice that you would give to your younger self?
Just practice, there are no shortcuts if you want to be good at anything.
If you could go back in time and give yourselves advice, what would it be?
More practice, don’t give up on your dreams.
