Kim Larsen was born in Copenhagen’s small cannel town Christianshavn in 1945 and was the leading singer in one of the most famous Danish rock band Gasolin.

Inspired by The Beatles and rock & roll, he began as a songwriter and guitarist in the early stage. In 1969 he met Franz Beckerlee and Wili Jønsson, and the three musician founded band ‘Gasolin’ which later joined by drummer Søren Berlev, the band became one of the most successful Danish rock bands in the Danish pop music history.

Kim Larsen released a number of solo albums in the 1980s, topping in 1983 with the album Midt om natten (en: In the Middle of the Night). The album more or less became a soundtrack for the movie by the same name based upon it.[1]
In 1983, Larsen founded the band Kim Larsen & Bellami and released four albums until 1992, when after a couple of different line-ups, the band broke up. He then released another solo album, Hvem kan sige nej til en engel (Who Can Say No To An Angel).
In the mid 1990s he founded the band Kim Larsen & Kjukken which is based in Odense.
