Linda Ulvaeus – The Author!

17 04 2011

Linda Ulvaeus has debuted as an author of children’s books in collobration with illustrator Johanna Lundqvist and actress Suzanne Reuter (Reuter is Linda´s neighbour.) The books  are called “Leja Li och busbullen” and ”Leja Li, pappan och fisken”. They come as sets of traditional books and CD books. Lundqvist has illustrated the books and multimedia and Reuter is the voice on the CD. 

Linda wrote the books during a one month period at the end of her pregnancy. She was still feeling  very creative but felt she was unable to work as an actress because of her size during the pregnancy, so she sat at the computer and started writing. The work ended up as four books. Two have now been released and the remaining two are planned to be released in the autumn. 

 

 

Björn Ulvaeus  even attended on of the book readings in Stockholm.

Benny checks out Chess in Glasgow

12 04 2011


He might already know it so well  – because he wrote it – but Abba’s Benny Andersson popped in to check on his show Chess in Glasgow.

The Abba star, who also penned smash-hit musical Mamma Mia, was at the city’s King’s Theatre on Saturday to see the last night of the production directed by Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood.

Benny, 64, who wrote the music with fellow Abba member Bjorn Ulvaeus while Sir Tim Rice provided the lyrics, even signed autographs for some fans who spotted him, before heading backstage to meet the cast.

The musical includes the song I Know Him So Well, which was recently a Comic Relief hit for Susan Boyle and comedian Peter Kay.

A spokesman for the King’s Theatre, said: “It must have been very exciting for those sitting beside him in the Grand Circle, and it just goes to show you never know who you might be sitting next to!”

The Swedish singer/songwriter was in Abba from 1972 until 1982. The group found fame after winning the Eurovison Song Contest in 1974 with Wateroo.

Chess, Benny and Bjorn’s first musical, opened in London’s West End in 1986 and played for three years.

It is set against a backdrop of the Cold War as two great chess masters, an American and a Russian, battle it out at the world championships.
