Biography

Håkan Jan “Ian” Haugland (born August 13, 1964 in Storslett, Nordreisa, Norway) is the drummer in the Swedish hard rock band Europe. When he was eight months old, he and his family moved to the Swedish suburb Märsta. He joined Europe in the summer of 1984, replacing Tony Reno. Previously Haugland had played in a number of bands, including Trilogy, where Candlemass bassist Leif Edling sang, and Yngwie J. Malmsteen’s band Rising Force.

After Europe went on hiatus in 1992, Haugland recorded and toured with bands like Brazen Abbot, Clockwise, Last Autumn’s Dream, Europe colleague John Norum and former Black Sabbath / Deep Purple vocalist Glenn Hughes. In 1998 Haugland recorded a cover version of the Black Sabbath song “Changes”, for the Ozzy Osbourne tribute album Ozzified. When he’s not on the road or in the studio, he works as a host on the radio channel 106.7 Rockklassiker in Stockholm and every now and then he plays drums in the studio.

Haugland is currently living in Sigtuna, Sweden with his wife Marita and their three children, Simon, Jannie and Linnéa. His musical favourites are Rush, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Thore Skogman, Aerosmith and Black Sabbath. His favourite movies include Blade Runner, everything with Monty Python, Debbie Does Dallas and Dunderklumpen!.
