Started drumming at the age of 8. Played with some later-to-become-famous-musicians back in the infamous Upplands Väsby from the age of 10. Then turned to guitar and piano. Wrote my first song, and kept on going.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
My dad took me to Bruce Springsteen, on The River Tour in Stockholm May 1981. STILL prabably the most kick-ass performance I've ever seen including tons of other Springsteen gigs afterwards. I owe Bruce for life for that injection.
Met the Toto guys by chance in '82 - I was 12 years old - and was invited to their concert that evening. That sorta blew me into a new wonderful scene, that's to the larger part, who I am, musically.
What gear do you use?
Love my Pro Tools HD Native, and my Yamaha Motif XS7
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Elvis Presley and Bruce Springsteen until the age of about 12, when I drifted into more slick music like Toto and stuff. Love LOTS of things that came out of LA in the early eightees.
If you've never listened to Bill LaBounty you've missed out !!!
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I had the band PRISONER with life long friend Tommy Denander, featuring singers Pierre Wensberg and Geir Rönning. 'Been producing ever since. In 2011 I did two albums for HOUSTON, of which the 1st was named AOR-album of the year by Classic Rock Magazine. Also did the amazing band SENCELLED. Wrote some really cool songs for other recording artists.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
About 28.000 people in Tarttu - Estonia in -92 . Lots of memorable performances like Firefest 2011 - Nottingham UK with Houston and Jimi Jamison of Survivor.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Pages - s/t 1981 Some serious production, songwriting, vocals and musical arrangements on that one. Never gets old.
