Whatever happened to Timi Hansen?
« on: October 04, 2014, 01:35:54 pm »
He was a great bassist and his work played a huge role in making albums like Abigail and DBTO as amazing as they are.  Then he just quit and according to his wikipedia page he never went on to do anything else.

Life happened.  He became a father and wanted to put all of his efforts into parenthood.

I guess he is working with the Danish Football Association. At least he said so in this interview I found (it's from year 2000 though):

Family life. He came back BRIEFLY for the Mercyful Fate reunion. I think we take it for granted that he is on the In The Shadows album, but he even quit then by the time the USA tour came up. I guess his life was more rooted in another direction. I also read interviews were he was not very comfortable with the Satanic and violent imagery/theatrics/lyrics.

Yeah Timi is on Facebook and it really is the real one,he's super cool,I even asks him if he would ever join or play with Mercyful Fate again,he said for studio album yea but his touring life is pretty much over,but I hope maybe he changes his mind in the future
