Musician, Producer & Mixer

(Billy Idol)


Warm Audio Gear Used:

After spending some considerable amount of time using the Tone Beast, EQP-WA, WA-2A and WA-76, I can say without hesitation that these products are simply incredible. The amount of cream and "mojo" that I get from these units, especially when pushed, is giving me the analog tone shaping I need to print a signal that needs no plug-in.

Erik Eldenius is currently the drummer for Billy Idol. When Mr. Eldenius is not touring with Billy Idol, he can be found working as a recording session musician, producer, mixer or engineer at his studio in Los Angeles, California.

Born on the dusty plains of India. After a few confusing months I was quickly packed and shipped to Sweden… A country, whose socio-liberal system works great if you get sick or prefer blondes. After ruining their cutlery and pots imitating “Animal” from the Muppet Show, my lovely parents bought me some drums. I endured the cold harsh winters by practicing my newly acquired gifts in a basement with four windows. After picking up the piano and surviving high school I enrolled in music college, two years of intense indulgence in the middle of nowhere.

As a child I often dreamed of living on top of the skyscrapers in New York City, something I would reconsider today… I settled for Los Angeles and bought my first car. Living in Los Angeles has allowed me to work with some amazing people (Billy Idol, Mandy Moore, Donna Summer, Cher, Five For Fighting and many more). I’m working as a session and touring drummer along with producing and mixing records for a wide array of people.
