About Kim Larsen

One of Danish rock's best-sellers and most respected artists, Kim Larsen came to prominence as a member of what many consider to be Denmark's greatest contribution to the rock canon, the '70s band Gasolin'. In 1978 Larsen began releasing a steady stream of solo albums that would find him equaling the sales tallies that his former group had roped in. In the late '80s Larsen formed the first of his side bands, Kim Larsen & Bellami, which released four albums from 1986 to 1992. With his second ensemble, Kim Larsen & Kjukken, the Dane released another string of well-received work. Kim Larsen died in September 2018 at the age of 72. ~ Chris True
