In Flames' Anders Friden explains his love for all things whisky
Whisky and rock’n’roll go hand in hand, but In Flames’ Anders Fridén has taken his obsession to new levels
You’re a whisky connoisseur? How’d that all start?
“It started when I was an intern at a recording studio in the mid-90s. Me and the guy who ran the studio had a local bar where we’d often go to relax and talk about the musicians that we recorded all day. One day, this guy behind the bar showed me some Glenmorangie and said, ‘Man, you’ve gotta try this.’ I’d tried some blended whiskies before and they weren’t great, but when I tired Glenmorangie, I was like, ‘Wow!’ It was an eye-opening experience.”
