I got my first guitar the 24th of December 1964, a gift from my parents.

This really changed my life.


Summer of ´65 and the Eko aucustic sixstring.....That summer I was constantly playing this piece of nice italian craftsmanship.


I just kept on playing. All day and most of the night. Year after year....
(Indeed, it was hard for my poor fingertips.)

We called the group "The Germs". I played together with my cousin Peter. He had a nice Egmont guitar. Almost as hazardous as the Eko to play. We really loved music!


The Germs
1965-1969

 

The Germs

Reharsing. Always rehearsing...

...playing, singing. Always carrying our guitars. Totally devoted to our music. A mix of simple blues and covers.


There were some memorable moments. Here we are performing some strange song on stage in our barn in Roslagen. Another Peter is performing as a guest artist. I had got a Hagstrom Electric guitar, financed by my generous brother. Thank you, Bosse !

The PA-system was a tape recorder and some radio sets. Notice the small guitar amp close to my left foot. (20 Watts or so)
