How it all began...
One day 1964 a friend of mine got a record from his brother who had been to UK - FIVE BY FIVE - I was ”All sold out ” never heard anything like that. You know ! 14 years old and no money, what to do ? I made a try for a radio show I think it was called ” Radioapparaten ” but I’m not sure, anyway I sent a letter telling Kersti Adams-Ray that I loved the Stones and I wanna hear them play If You Need Me , the program was sent on my birthday, What a gift ! She played my song and than the record was sent to me, my first Rolling Stones item. Thank you SR.
A few years later 1967, don’t remember how, but I got a ticket for a Stones concert in Örebro - me and some friends went there by train, I was only sixteen but I loved them so.. The show ended up in chaos, but what a memory.
After that I have seen all Stones shows in Sweden and I feel like it’s getting better and better shows all the time but it’s not the same feeling, now days it’s more like a giant Circus, but after all It’s only rock’n roll and I like it.
Me and Mr Jagger.
The Urban Jungle tour was coming to Göteborg and I booked Hotel rooms at Sheraton for me my wife and some friends. Our room was in the same corridor as Keith Richards and Ron Wood . First I met Ron and said hello and ask him to sign a record I had in my pocket - he said no problem and signed it. We went to the elevators going down to the bar - I pushed the button and the doors went up: Inside the elevator was Mick Jagger - Charlie Watts and some body gards, me anda guy jumped in and Mick said that this was bad security - but he smiled - I told him that I have been waiting for this moment for thirty years and asked him to sign a record, Shit - my pen didn’t work but Mick took the other guys pen and signed my record but that was all no more he said and Charlie just smiled - the doors went up and the body gards pushed us back in to the elevator. There is more to tell but it’s another story.
