Nice interview, nice ladies. (We should leave them be....)

Found the following 1/23/09 interview from the Swedish tabloid "Aftonbladet".

The ABBA ladies are gracious.

Also, a link to a YouTube clip of a subsequent phone interview with Agnetha: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APlLqXiRKB0&feature=related

7/09: I'm sorry, but it appears that the above interview link has now been removed. Try this one, which contains a written English translation in the comment section: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5SPyUsbcgQ

Agnetha and Frida: We didn’t fight

Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Fältskog say they are very happy that the world is once again saying “Thank You For The Music”.

They say they’ve enjoyed the renewed success and recognition Abba has had lately and are proud of the fact that Meryl Streep and other stars are singing their songs.

But they won’t be making any new records.

“I’ve rather lost touch with music,” says Agnetha.

The couple happily toasted each other with champagne after their tumultuous reception at a gala evening in Stockholm last night when they were reunited to receive the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet’s Rockbjörnen award for “Lifetime achievement”.

They obviously still get on very well with each other and clearly enjoyed the chance to reminisce about the old days.

They were asked how they felt about the success of the film version of “Mamma Mia!”

Agnetha: We feel incredibly proud that the music never seems to die. A new generation likes it and that gives you great hope.
