Hi Stones fan,

My name is Staffan, born in the late -52, living north of Stockholm, Sweden, with my wife and our youngest son. I have also two grown up boys. I知 working as an engineer in the nuclear power industry.

The first musical experience during the fantastic エ60s was Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis. Then it was turning out to be even better, the sixties exploded with Rolling Stones, Beatles, Kinks, Who, Animals, Jimi Hendrix, Status Quo and also some Swedish bands as Shanes, Hep Stars and Tages. Later on I listen to Creedence, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Deep Purple, Bachman-Turner Overdrive among others. At that time we check out what was going on with help of the Swedish Radio, Radio Luxembourg and pop-magazines. What a wonderful time that was!

The Rolling Stones were always on my mind in younger days and over all these years, more than 40 years, they stand above others in more ways than one. Stones have songs for everybody痴 taste. I知 convinced that Stones are the greatest Rockエn`Roll band on earth and nobody will ever come close to them.

I知 not a collector but you can say that I知 collecting musical experience and nice rockエnエroll memories. You know, sometimes I'm a rocker and sometimes I'm all a roller, I may go down sometimes but I come back to rock'n'roller. Nowadays, when I知 not so young anymore I have calm down a bit and trying more to be a good Viking, that is to say, I知 listen to rock music and I need the Stones to keep me happy.

Posting on the message board as 塗eadheart&balls and I have chosen the nickname cause I知 a Keith Richards fan. He is very cool and I like his manner, style and way of playing guitar. Just as long as Keith's guitar plays, it will steal my heart away.

My wife also likes Stones and we enjoy travelling to concerts, especially Stones-concerts, and that makes my life easier!

I have a dream that one day see the Rolling Stones at MSG, USA and I hope my dream will come true next year. Well, I just keep on rockin' and hope for the best!

See you there, see you anywhere...keep rollinエ...

 Rock on!
