About Dr BenDix:
In 1999 three well seasoned musicians (Kjell Bendixen, Haavard Eidsaunet, and Roger Vadseth) were lured to the blues through the recordings of Muddy Waters, Lee Oscar, Robert Johnson, Dave Hole, Johnny V, The Blues Brothers etc. Their individual experience performing in bands that played blues, jazz, rock`n roll, and heavy rock was the catalyst that inspired them to form Dr. BenDix,. In the spring of 2002 Dr BenDix recorded a CD titled "Life Is A Rocky Road" to help promote their songwriting, and musical interpretations.
In the Autumn of 2003 a new cd "White Lies" is released, and now they really getting it "hot". Catch them live and when you do, don''t forget your dancing shoes, ''cause the BenDix really swings the blues.
They are amazing about the respond they have got on their first cd. They don''t know much about the future, all they know is "making one cd a year keeps the smile in our face". All recordings is recorded live in studio and give the listener an idea how they sound live on stage.
Here is some responds from the world outside:

BIOGRAPHY of Dr BenDix
Dr. BenDix is born (1955) high up north in Norway. His father play the guitar, harmonica and the accordion. Dr. BenDix grabbed the guitar at 7 years of age and he has played in a band since he was 14 years old. He is one of the few guitar players from Norway who has create his own stile and sound, you can simply hear it is Dr. BenDix who is playing.
He says it was not much to do up in the north, and he had an urge for playing the guitar. So the he sat in his room and listening to big names as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Frank Zappa, Jimmy Hendrix, Jan Ackerman, Elmore James, Rory Gallager etc..
He started in a professional band at 17 of age, touring Norway, Sweden and Denmark. He knows the many styles of the idiom right down to the tones, licks, and equipment. You may hear hints of the great players he has studied, but he does not sound like anyone in particular and has nurtured a style all his own. If you have ever witnessed one of his performances, the first thing you notice is that he packs around at least tree different guitars in order to get the right sound for the song being played.
He started his own record-label in 2002 (Dr. BenDix Music Machine), and released his first CD called "Life Is A Rocky Road" in the spring of 2002. This CD is being broadcasted on air, cable and internet in USA, Europe and Australia. His new cd "White Lies" released in Autumn 2003 will also be sent to a lot of radio-stations. Dr BenDix do hope this new cd will get the same enthusiastic radio sessions as "Life Is A Rocky Road" did.
- Man, keep on rockin`, if you give it up you`ll lose.
