Slidin' Slim: Bio

Slidin' Slim

I grew up listening to Jerry Lee, Chuck Berry and Fats Domino and that might have put the mean R&B in my blood when I was just a small kid. In the late 70..s and early 80..s I discovered Ramones, The Clash, Dead Kennedys and whole Swedish punk scene. I guess I always been something of a misfit so I just fell in love with the whole thing and started my first band as a 12 year old. During the late 80..s I lost it for a while but somewhere around 90/91 I discovered delta blues and Son House, Charlie Patton and Robert Johnson. That was it. Since 1994 my whole focus has been the blues and I've released a number of CD's and toured in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Poland, The Netherlands and USA. During the last couple of years I've been writing fiction (nothing published yet) and working on a spoken word idea.
