Terje Wintersto Rothing (born Terje Vintersto in 1977) is a Norwegian musician, playing guitar in two rock bands.


Rothing 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, Snatt & Juling" (band) and "gnom" (band). Rothing had, just like Zahl, background from "Klepp Rockclub", and played funk/rock guitar in "Zombie Porrkchop" (band) and later indie-guitar in "Watershed" (band).

As of 2011 he played the lead guitar in the Norwegian rock band Kaizers Orchestra under the name Terje "Killmaster" Kaizer.

Rothing is also the frontman of the Norwegian punk band Skambankt that plays a mixture of punk, rock'n'roll and hard rock. In that band, he goes by the name Ted Winters and plays second guitar and sings.

Before Kaizers Orchestra and Skambankt, he played in bands including (the Norwegian) band Watershed, Ebenezer, Zombie Porkshop and allegedly Johnny and the Sexual Problems. On occasion he played guitar for The Goo Men.

In 2009, Rothing 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, Rothing earned criticism after showering a fellow musician's head with beer as a response to an alleged racist comment during the show. Rothing 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 Wintersto. 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".
