The Bertils was more or less created when Kent discovered Bosse Hedman´s ability to play air bass. "This guy has lots of sense of music", he thought. And we he was told that Bosse won the Swedish Championships for "Air Bass playing" in 1987, he fixed him a suitably sized bass, and a decent amplifier, in less than 24 hours. Then we collected the others and went forward with the project.
All members were Volvo or ex-Volvo employees in the beginning but when the band discussed to become "real" performers, the drummer backed out, and was replaced by Olle Strååt. (See the similarities? Pete -> out , Ringo -> in).
Bosse however departed from the Bertils....concentrating on other projects he is up to. Douglas Källstedt-Georgsson has decided to join the band. A bit odd due to his relatively younger age, but it proves that sixties music is for everyone, all ages at all times.
