Bo Hansson (10 April 1943 – 23 April 2010) was a Swedish musician best known for his four instrumental albums released in the 1970s. Hansson spent his early life in a remote village in the pine forests of northern Sweden, but a change in his parents' fortunes forced a move to Stockholm and they were forced to leave the young Hansson behind, in the care of family friends.

The cover to Bo Hansson's 1975 album depicts the Swedish progger as a comic book keyboard superstar a la Rick Wakeman crossed with Gregor Samsa, the protagonist of Franz Kafka's novella "The Metamorphosis" (who discovers himself transformed one morning into a giant cockroach). It's all very silly and psychedelic, but the portrait gives a misleading impression of the music itself, a collection of mostly tame but evocative instrumentals with more than just keyboard heroics to recommend it.
Bo first came to prominence in the mid/late 1960s with the organ and drums duo Hansson & Karlsson gaining some notoriety for jamming with Jimi Hendrix. He also played with the bands Flasket Brinner and Kebnekajse, although he never joined either. In fact members of those bands featured on his 1970s quadrilogy of instrumental fantasy prog rock albums.
Bo Hansson–Mellanväsen (1975) As far as music that ignores boundaries and rules, progressive if you want, goes this is one of the finest outlets. Beginning his solo career by interpreting The Lord of the Rings, after that Hansson teamed up with Swedish prog superstar guitarist Kenny Håkansson. Håkansson provides some of his best melodies, and hence some of the best melodies ever written, to this album. The complexity and consistency of tracks as Lyckat Upptåg and Funderingar på Vinden never seizes to amaze and inspire. Deathspell Omega–Si monvmentvm reqvires, circvmspice (2004) This album.
