Singer, Songwriter. Born Karl Ljunggren, he made his debute on stage in the late 1960s. His music was designated by much energy and lyrics with humour and sarkasm. His first album, the Live-LP "Till Mossan", was released in 1977, and was by many concidered "A milestone in Swedish rock history". His energetic music was building bridges between rock 'n roll and punk, and he was influenced very much by Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly. With his band Pågarna he toured round Sweden and gained enormous popularity. The third album "Rock e nock" (1979) was a step toward hardrock, containing his own versions of songs by Thin Lizzy and Bachman-Turner Overdrive among others. He died suddenly from an artery rupture just ten days prior to his 36th birthday.
