Additional information

Agnetha and Frida made a surprise appearance together and collected a Lifetime Achievement Award for ABBA at the annual Rockbjörn Gala. Benny and Björn were apparently "looking after the children" (... but Benny's youngest was 28 and Björn's youngest was 22 at the time!).

The Rockbjörns are voted for by readers of Swedish daily newspaper, Aftonbladet and this award was to celebrate the Rockbjörn's 30th anniversary.

Both ladies looked relaxed and happy - and of course, absolutely fantastic!

They talked about what the evening meant to them: how a new generation was listening to ABBA thanks to Mamma Mia!; how Agnetha, although now a grandmother and taken a step back from music, still wrote lyrics even though she did nothing with them.

They both agreed that promotion was something they would not want to do in the event of a new recording. Frida joked she had asked Agnetha to record with her.

Frida also took the opportunity to refute all and any claims of a feud between here and Agnetha.
