goldfinger Posted April 27, 2010 Report Share Posted April 27, 2010 The Beatles as an entity virtually ended in January 1970. The pressures had been building, John was entering a very surreal.. avante guard phase with the way out artist Yoko... in a way the break up had to happen. Around that time over in Sweden two very talented guys were getting together to write songs. ... In age they were nt that far away from Paul.. Bjorn is only 18 months or so younger ! So they were basically from the same generation.. but obviously late developers. The 60s had been male dominated... music and songs performed and sung by guys for an army of teenage girls who were the main buyers of pop music. Abba ... very unusually, decided to go with female vocals.... the guys were content to put Frida and Agnetha up front while they played guitar and keyboards in the background. The formula worked and they became a massive world wide success... rivalling the Beatles... but never quite cracking America where the real big money was to be made.
