The drummer for Hanoi Rocks since the rebirth, Kari "Lacu" Lahtinen used to play with Michael Monroe during his solo years. Lacu is the drummer of drummers, a great showman whose always fun to watch on stage.
In his off-time from Hanoi Rocks Kari Lahtinen likes to jam with several bands to "keep the touch, and of course, because it's fun". What Lacu fails to mention is due to his modest character is - he's just so good everybody wants him!
Kari "Lacu" Lahtinen and his drums lay down the concrete founding for the rest of the band, and now, with Conny and A.C. in the ranks, Lacu describes his working conditions as "Way out fun! We can outplay anybody now!"
