Raymond Strid

Born:

Born Stockholm, 1956; drums, percussion. Raymond Strid started to play the drums relatively late. As he had become addicted to listening to music, sometimes spending eight ours a day in front of the stereo, he was encouraged to start playing himself (and to this day, he is still a dedicated listener and audiophile). With no musical background he thought the drums would be the easiest instrument to learn. He was particularly inspired by some of the European master drummers like Han Bennink, Paul Lytton and Tony Oxley. Strid's first concert was 30 September 1977 and he subsequently performed in a variety of local groups in Stockholm
