Finnish rocker VILLE VALO is considering quitting his band HIM to go back to work at his father's sex shop.

The 28-year-old - who started out as an assistant in his dad's Helsinki store - is growing tired of the band's exhausting touring schedule and yearns for the simple life again.

He says, "To be brutally honest, I have been thinking of going back. Sometimes you get tired of all the travelling.

"My daddy and I were talking about expanding the business, so maybe one day I'll go back to work with him.

"Him works like a big advertisement for my daddy; the shop's much more popular now because everyone wants to visit it."
