I attended the Rock'N Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony on March 15th in the Ballroom at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in NYC and was thrilled to see Benny and Frida as well as their family and friends. They gave wonderful speeches and were the picture of class and elegance throughout the evening as compared to some of the other inductees and presenters.
I was disappointed with Faith Hill's preformance though. It was O.k. at best, with some flat notes and screeching of the high notes. Meryl Streep also attended the ceremony along with Judy Craymer, both having a great time. I think it would have been better and more appropriate for Meryl to have accompanied Benny and sung, after all she is part of the reason of the new generation of ABBA lovers and "The Winner Takes it All" was a song she performed very well in the movie 'Mamma Mia!'.

The STORY OF A HEART cd starts off with what almost sounds like an Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo and then it continues to impress. I was familiar with Tommy Korberg from CHESS, but this is my first encounter with Helen Sjoholm's rich, strong voice and clear pronunciation. And Benny hasn't lost his touch when it comes to writing tunes, nor has Bjorn lost his touch when it comes to composing lyrics!

The 2 disc ABBA IN JAPAN dvd is a fascinating chapter in the history of ABBA. It also gives a glimpse of the people, culture and scenery of Japan. The song "Not Bad At All" by Tomas Ledin and the "Squirrel Song" are a delightful surpise and well worth checking out for anyone who hasn't yet bought the limited edition dvd.

Hello, I joined the ABBA Fan Club in December 2009 and it's fantastic. When I received my copy of the December fan club magazine I was as excited as I was 30 years before at the age of 12 buying my first ABBA magazine, it is even the same size!
I had a great time at the ABBA World Preview for ABBA fan club members on Saturday 23 January and at the fan club organised pub event afterwards at a great venue with good food and fantastic music. I appreciate these things take a lot of arranging so thank you very much to Anita, Helga, Ursula and all at the ABBA Fan Club.

Just a quick thank you to all the ABBA fan club team for arranging the preview of AbbaWorld. A great day and so nice to have the place exclusively for us. I am looking forward to seeing Kristina at the Royal Albert Hall with the tickets the fan club arranged. Brilliant work and well done, thanks.
