Biography - A Short Wiki

Remembered for such 1970s and 1980s albums as Undrigar, Blue Virgin Isles, and Caramba, this vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist left behind his music career in his mid-twenties, but was posthumously recognized as one of the most accomplished Swedish musicians of his generation.

He and his brothers Kjell and Kenneth were raised in Stockholm County, Sweden. Suffering from a combination of anxiety, depression, and potentially paranoid schizophrenia, he committed suicide in his early forties.
