Terje Winterstø Røthing (born Terje Vinterstø in 1977) is a Norwegian musician, playing guitar in two rock bands.


Røthing joined a band named Kaizers Orchestra soon after the band started in 2000. He had participated with various bandmembers earlier projects. He was a long-term friend of Janove Ottesen and Geir Zahl. He had participated on every recording of "Blod, Snått & Juling" (band) and "gnom" (band). Røthing had, just like Zahl, background from "Klepp Rockclub", and played funk/rock guitar in "Zombie Porrkchop" (band) and later indie-guitar in "Watershed" (band).

In 2009, Røthing opened a photo-exhibit at a galleri in Oslo, with photos from Kaizers Orchestra's tour(s), in cooperation with Paal Audestad.

In the aftermath of the 2012 Norwegian Spellemann Awards, Røthing earned criticism after showering a fellow musician's head with beer as a response to an alleged racist comment during the show. Røthing later posted a public apology to the musician in question on Kaizers Orchestra's official Facebook page, admitting that he had overreacted.

Private Life

Terje is married to Ragnhild Winterstø. They had a child in November 2010, during Skambankt's tour and they had to cancel the p3 sessions concert. Ragnhild is singing a duet with Janove Ottesen on Kaizers Orchestra's 2008 album Maskineri. The song is named "Den andre er meg".
