When I was three years old I did my first live performance singing at Amiralen, in my hometown Malmö, Sweden. At seven I started playing piano. When I was twelve, I started playing guitar. Two years later I did my first tour at fourteen years old. My band "Zaturnus" became the backing band for Inger Nilsson (Pippi Longstocking). One of the gigs were at the Pamplona Bullfighting arena, in front of 15-20000 people. That's when I decided that, "this is what I want to do in life".
When I was eighteen I recorded my first single with my band "Silver Mountain". It was made in thousand copies. Now a collectors item.
When I was twentytwo and being one of the pioneers in Swedish metal, we got signed to Roadrunner records and did our first album "Shakin Brains". After that Anders & Jens Johansson left the band to join Yngwie Malmsteen and his "Rising Force". We did a couple of more albums and were invited to Japan to headline "The heavy metal festival in Hibiya, Tokyo". As the first swedish metal band to play live and to record a live album in Japan.
