Who’s Stevie Klasson? Born on July 28 in 1968 in Södertälje, Sweden, Stevie started playing in punk various bands at the age of 13. In the summer of 1987 he made friends with Johnny Thunders who took him under his wings. That started a collaboration that lasted until Johnny’s death in 1991. Stevie have toured and recorded with Diamond Dogs, Conny Bloom’s Groovies Inc., Hanoi Rocks, Freddie Wadling, Spain and the list goes on. In 2007 he released ‘Don’t Shoot The Messenger’ (Wild Kingdom) with a little help from a row of good friends like, Nicke Andersson (Hellacopters), Robert ”Strängen” Dahlqvist (Hellacopters), Vigilante Carlstroem (Hives), Mattias Bärjed (Soundtrack Of Our Life), Peter Svensson (Cardigans), Chris Wilson (Flaming Groovies), Darrell Bath (Vibrators / Uk Subs), Brady Blade (Emmylou Harris) and Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols). In 2009, he started the band Black Weeds. The members of the band are not written in stone, but you see Martin Tronsson on stage a lot and Robert Eriksson behind the drums, and Boba Lee Fett is a university lecturer so he can’t make it sometimes then Stevie gets in his old pal Conny Bloom or Andy McCoy to fill his shoes but that’s the way he likes it.

The release party for the book and album will be held at Akkurat (Hornsgatan 18) in Stockholm Sunday January 24th, doors open 19:00 and a good piece of advice is to be there early.
