Why "Hanoi Rocks"[edit]

Why Hanoi Rocks ... At the time it would have been a busy place with poor sewerage, prone to floods and was known .. at the time .. to be a breeding pool of crazy communists... ( Did they want an invitation to visit Vietnam ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:30, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Concerning founding members[edit]

Andy McCoy was not a founding member of Hanoi Rocks, although he masterminded the band. In fact, Hanoi Rocks was founded by Michael Monroe and Nasty Suicide in 1979. For a short period of time other members included Stefan Piesnack (guitar), Jesu Hämäläinen (bass), Nedo (drums) and Keimo Hirvonen (drums). In 1980 Andy McCoy & Sam Yaffa quit punk rock group Pelle Miljoona Oy to join Hanoi Rocks. It was at this time that HR moved to Sweden and enlisted swedish drummer Gyp Casino. --Humppe 14:50, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Sales figures[edit]

Hanoi Rocks have sold 30 million albums? Where did you get that? Their ex manager Jone Nikula said that the band have sold about 780 000 - 1 000 000 albums altogether.

Reunion: 2001 or 2002?[edit]

The Finnish Wikipedia page (13 April 2009 version) says the reunion was in 2001 but this page says 2002. Which one is correct? ---Majestic- (talk) 14:03, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
