Stefan Alexander Bo Olsdal was born on March 31, 1974, in Goteborg, Sweden. He started playing drums in high school, but switched later to bass. He attended the American International School of Luxembourg, which was the same school attended by Brian Molko. Little did they know that the tall and athletic Swede would pair up a few years later with the dramatic and androgynous Brian Molko. They formed a band they called Ashtray Heart, and later with the addition of drummer Robert Schultzberg, were called Placebo. Olsdal is gay, and Molko is bisexual...and Robert was a homophobe. Needless to say, that didn't work out so well, so the band nabbed drummer Steven Hewitt from his previous band Breed, and with Steve became the Placebo we all know and love today! Stefan currently has a side project called Hotel Persona, which is apparently working on an album to be released in 2007 and featuring Brian Molko.
I'd likely get a sex change if I thought it would give me a chance with the lithe, lovely, delicious, talented, gorgeous, graceful Stefan Olsdal.
