Correct me if Im mis-informed but in the 80s he was rather bigtime on Swedish TV - but NOT as a musician.)
A common misconception about progrock is that its all stuffy/serious.
Not at all. Much is light.
Thats what I like about Hansson's music - its frolicksome. Even one of his compositions is titled something like: "A Happy Prank".
I would say one of the pinnacles of Swede playful (but deadly complex) prog is Samlas.

Unless your counting Taste of Blues band.
I guess your counting this "36 years later" cd? Is it any good? I read they are straight bluesrock here with this reunion, so that would not interest me.
Whats that unreleased track "Take Off" cd like?
