The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum recently announced that ABBA will be inducted to the Hall next year. A long delayed action, I believe.
Abba has been a favorite way beyond generations. They go beyond the 70s that kids even now can sing and dance to Dancing Queen. Remember Mamma Mia? There is even a group in Canada who is very popular among Canadians called Abbamania (?).
Congratulations Abba. Salud.
Other inductees include:
- Genesis. I was surprised to know that Peter Gabriel was the original lead singer of this group. All along I thought it was just Phil Collins. I was not reading history. Now I know.
- Jimmy Cliff. Familiar but I think I haven't heard his reggae songs.
- Hollies. Who are they?
- Stooges. Iggy Pop founded this group. I heard songs of Iggy Pop but never heard of Stooges.
