Benny and Frida in May 1978

Below, two versions of the same picture, with Benny and Frida at the backstage of the TV program Olivia! Show, in which ABBA performed in May 1978.

I wish I had an autographed picture like this one...

One of my favorite photo sessions showing a very charming ABBA, in 1978.

Good-looking people

Benny and his sexy shirt...

Benny, Frida and Agnetha are very elegant, but I wouldn't say the same about Björn... 
I'm sorry, my dear!

Benny, Frida and... Zappa!

ABBA before ABBA

A post for Frida, Benny, Agnetha and Björn in the 1960s, at the time of their solo or band careers, before ABBA success.

Let's laugh

ABBA members were - and certainly still are - not only gentle and friendly, but also funny people, so there are many joyful moments of them caught by the cameras. What do you think of enjoying some of these amusing pictures? Let's go!

Björn: "Why do we always need to pose with stuffed animals for the pictures?!" 

Playing and laughing

"I wanna kiss you!"

Benny and Björn very serious, as usual

 Frida and Agnetha having fun at Rockbjörnen cerimony, in 2009

The Moulin Rouge (!) photo shoot

Agnetha: "I know how to play a lot of instruments!"

Who doesn't like this I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do scene?
ABBA men "ignoring" their women!
Mainly Benny, who does "not" see Frida asking for some champagne

Benny: "Erm... I don't know if I'm already ready for the pictures..."
Agnetha: "Let's go take this photo shoot!"

"Haha, I have an Apple cellphone! And you don't!"

An absent-minded Frida...

Benny (thinking): "Oh, I'm gonna have a headache... again!"

Great ABBA on 1977 tour

The band goes crazy!

Benny: "She's not at all like Frida, but she's still nice..."

A cross-eyed Frida!

I don't know why they were laughing, but it must have been about something very funny
Just look at Benny here!

Like kids at a playground

Hehe, look at Agnetha's legs!

"I really like jumping!"

Benny: "Oh, Frida's stolen my heart!"

It seems Benny feels the need to watch Frida over... 
You know, it's important to ensure that nothing wrong will happen to a *cough* old friend, while she's with James Bond...
