Who Is Aki Hakala? Wikipedia And Biography Details
Aki-Markus Juhani Hakala is a drummer in the Finnish rock band The Rasmus who can be found on both Spanish and Finnish Wikipedia. Though he was born in Espoo, Finland on October 28, 1979, he and his family later relocated to Helsinki.
He attended a music academy as a young man. Hakala is the only current member of the band who has not been with The Rasmus since their inception, having joined in 1999 after Janne Heiskanen's departure.
The way that Aki came to be part of the group is highly unusual. He had been invited by Pauli to do a soundcheck, after which the founding guitarist asked, "Hey, do you want to join The Rasmus?", which Hakala gladly accepted.
Interestingly, before joining The Rasmus, he sold the band's merchandise outside of concerts.
