Tuomas Holopainen (Nightwish) i vanvittig sjovt soloprojekt

Tuomas Holopainen fra Nightwish har siden 1999 drømt om, at lave et soundtrack kaldt »The Life And Times Of Scrooge«.

Albummet er bygget på den kendte grafiske novelle »The Life And Times Of Scrooge McDuck«, tegnet af Don Rosa fra Disney studierne.

Tuomas Holopainen fortæller selv om optagelsen til af nummeret "A Lifetime Of Adventure":

"The director, Ville Lipiäinen, and me went through some options of how to approach the video and soon agreed to shoot a sort of `making of` - clip of the song. The idea of someone dressing up as Scrooge McDuck, and then filming him digging gold and riding an emu on an Australian desert felt just a tad corny. Ville then followed us to London`s Angel Studios and later Petrax Studios to film some shots from the orchestra-, vocal-, guitar-, and piano sessions. The hero of the video is Don Rosa himself. His presence and facial expressions always put a big smile on my face. I hope you`ll enjoy this adventure as much as we did!"
