Biography

Early life

Antti Hulkko was born in Pelkosenniemi, Finnish Lapland to Finnish parents. At the age of 9 his family moved to Stockholm, Sweden, where he grew fluent in the Swedish and basic English language (his neighbor was half-Jamaican). At the age of 14 his family remigrated back to Finland - this time to Helsinki. Hulkko has said that this was something of a cultural shock to him - he had started to forget the Finnish language.

In Helsinki his family lived in the suburb of Vuosaari, where Antti used to go to "Botby Högstadieskolan". It was also at this time, that Hanoi Rocks saw daylight.
