The Diamond Dogs is a Swedish rock band founded in Katrineholm during the early nineties by vocalist Sören 'Sulo' Karlsson and guitarist Anders 'Boba' Lindström.

History[edit]

The line-up has changed several times throughout the bands career and has included members from bands such as The Hellacopters, Stefan Sundströms back-up band, Wilmer X, Patti Palladin, Dogs D'Amour, Nymphet Noodlers, Hedros & Hellberg and The Soundtrack Of Our Lives[2] however the band's music has always been rooted in 1970's rock.[3] The band has also toured extensively with bands such as Hanoi Rocks, The Damned, Nazareth, Georgia Satellites, Ian Hunter and The Cult. The band has been especially successful in Italy with crowds of up to ten thousand attending some of their concerts.[4] In 2002 the band teamed up with Swedish punk legend Lennart Eriksson or Fjodor as he was known during his time with Ebba Grön to record a track for a tribute album to Nationalteatern along with The Latin Kings frontman Dogge Doggelito. Currently the band is also recording all of their live shows throughout Spain which will result in a live album later this year.[5]
