Biography

Anders Herrlin was born on September 17th, 1961, in Harplinge. Anders and Micke were childhood friends, and they often played the drums together. However, as their interest in music got stronger and they realized a band consisting of two drummers just wouldn’t cut it, they drew lots to see who would become the bassist; Anders won, and began to teach himself at the age of 15. According to Anders it was because he had bigger thumbs…
