Jørn Viggo Lofstad - EVH and Axis.

"On October 14 1974, Jørn Viggo Lofstad was born in a small town called Mosjøen.[…]
Jørn Viggo’s first instrument was the bas, which he played at the age of 13. His mates had a band, and the only member they needed was a bassist.[…]
During his music career, Jørn Viggo has played with a lot of band projects, in studio and on stage. Dan Hagen & The War Babies, Beautiful Sin, An Evening With Toto Music and Jorn are some of them. In the late 90s, he played in An Evening With Toto Music along with keyboarder Ronny Tegner and bassist Steinar Krokmo. The Toto cover band paid tribute to the LA-rockers.
Stian Kristoffersen, Nils K. Rue, and Thorstein Aaby formed Pagan’s Mind in the summer of 2000, and were shortly after joined by Steinar Krokmo, Ronny Tegner and Jørn Viggo Lofstad.”

(Personal comment: today I’ve had a discussion with my friend on great male vocalists and I wanted to show her Jorn. While searching for some good example of his voice I came across the “Live in America” DVD and saw that one of the guitarists plays on EBMM guitar. And that’s how I found Jørn Viggo Lofstad :)
If you know any guitar/bass player who are not mentioned on my EBMM Players page and you think I shall write about them - please leave me a message!)

Jørn Viggo Lofstad - EVH.

I was born in Mosjøen, a little town in the middle of Norway and moved to Skien as a 3-year old kid and have lived here since then.[…]
As long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the art of music and rhythm, but didn’t pick up the guitar before the age about 14! […]
From the age about 14-17 I was inspired by bands like Dio, Metallica, King Diamond and discovered stuff like Deep Purple, Yes, Pink Floyd and Van Halen a little later on. Especially Van Halen was a great inspiring element for me during the time I developed my playing style and my musical expression.[…]
Besides, I have also played in several other band projects and also as a studio musician. Together with Steinar and Ronny of PM we did a Toto coverband project for some time as well. As of now,im really happy playing in Pagan’s Mind and Jorn, its two different kind of musical kicks(expressions) in these bands and I really need and enjoy them both.[…](pagansmind.com)
