Very Proud of My Radio Debut

Wouldn't you like to know me?


I might say that my affair with music started at a very young age. In the late 1960s I was just a kid and mostly listened to what my parents did. I must admit they had a good taste for music, but I always had a fall for the distorted fuzzy guitars and the frantic drums though I couldn't yet explain the energetic feeling it aroused in me.


I quickly developed my own taste and by the mid 70s I already had my own cassette tape collection recorded from borrowed vinyls, once I couldn’t afford buying the originals. Most of those bands I loved would later be referred to as Protopunk. Stooges, MC5, New York Dolls, The Who, Dictators and T-Rex were among my favorites.


One day I realized I myself could write songs and, from Punk Rock to Heavy Metal, I’ve been in many bands since the early 80s. However, fact is that I really don’t buy into this labyrinth of genres. For me, there’s either good or bad music. Hard Rock, Garage Rock, Alternative Rock, call it whatever you will; it’s only Rock & Roll and I like it!


I think music is a powerful weapon and shouldn’t be regarded as party fuel only. Lyrics can save a life, lyrics can change the world. You may be thinking that I’m just an old fart who thinks he can still play some Rock & Roll, but I invite you to get to know me a little better and maybe you’ll see that we have lots in common. Be welcome to my world!

Facebook Dropout

To my great surprise Dirty Swede's Facebook page was unpublished without any previous notice. The allegation is that the latest video posted made reference to a product by a famous brand and characterized unauthorized third-party advertisement. Well, I swear I didn't cash in on that and Converse hasn't even sent me a message saying thanks for my sacrifice. Of course I'll appeal and also put up a new page, but I can't be sure all my 4k friends will be back. I hope you, who dropped by and are reading this, can tell everybody else that I'm still here, I'm fine, making music as usual and I'll do my best to get back in touch again. To the right you can see the video which caused all that and make your own conclusions. Would a musician really be able to resist to sharing that?!?
