In this interview of Björn Ulvaeus for Gay Times UK, he opens up on how their LGBT fans prompted ABBA to come back.
He also is open with other aspiring artists like Billie Eilish O'Connell and Taylor Swift as well as offering favouring opinions of George Michael and Freddie Mercury. And a possible ABBA-Queen collaboration? Didn't happen, obviously, but he also recalls when ABBA and Queen were at the lineup for a Manchester (England) music television show.
However it was thanks to the outpouring of love and support from the queer community that ended up playing a key part in the return of ABBA to the world of music, as Björn explains.
“It was the gay community who underpinned the comeback,” he reveals. “People started recording, and one of the first bands that did it and was very important for us was Erasure. They did Take A Chance On Me.”
Björn continues: “Then we felt that we had the full support, and it made a lot of difference.”
I find it very endearing that they both have each others' back. I don't care who's who, when it comes to reviving their fame. It could be one of the young indie kids, it could be the LGBT community, it could be anime fans (e.g. Jojo's Bizarre Adventures), it could even be anyone...
