Personal information

Also known as: Magnum
Born on: 15.08.1973

Sami Wolking (born 15 August 1973, Helsinki, Finland) is a Finnish bassist and a former member of the hard rock band Lordi.

Using stage name Magnum, Wolking was a member of the band from 1999 to 2002. In 2002, increasing popularity of the band began to require that its members be available at all times. Unable to gamble his personal finances on a band that had not yet begun to see an income, the decision was made that Magnum would leave Lordi in order to maintain his day job.

Magnum can be seen in the music video for Would You Love a Monsterman? and played bass on Lordi's first album, Get Heavy. He also recorded the un-released Lordi album Bend Over And Pray The Lord, but did not play bass on it.

The album Get Heavy is dedicated to him.
