Nässjö, Sweden

Andreas Tyrone Svensson (born 12 June 1973 in Nässjö, Sweden), is best known as the former guitarist The Hellacopters and current guitarist of Backyard Babies and the newest member of Michael Monroe’s band, replacing Ginger as guitarist.
He is still a member of Backyard Babies, claiming in an interview with Rocksverige.se that the band will come together later and be stronger than ever.

Dregen formed the Backyard Babies with his childhood friends Nicke Borg, Peder Carlsson and Johan Blomqvist in their own town of Nässjö, Sweden. The band moved to Stockholm to pursue wider success. The group signed a record deal andreleased their debut album Diesel & Power in 1994.
Also in 1994, Dregen met singer and guitarist Nicke Andersson who at that time played drums with Swedish death metal outfit Entombed. Together they formed another band, The Hellacopters. The Hellacopters found success in 1996 with their album Supershitty to the Max!, which won a Grammis. It was followed in 1997 by the record Payin’ the Dues. The band also toured with KISS. That same year, Backyard Babies released another Grammis winning album – Total 13.
By the end of the 1990s, Dregen decided to leave The Hellacopters and focused on recording and performing with Backyard Babies.[2].
