Abba Star Rules Out Reunion At Hall Of Fame Induction
ABBA star ANNI-FRID REUSS has ruled out a much-anticipated band reunion, insisting it's "too late for that" at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in New York on Monday night (15Mar10).
Reuss, formerly Anni-Frid 'Frida' Lyngstad, joined her former husband and bandmate Benny Andersson at the gala, where they were inducted by Bee Gees brothers Robin and Barry Gibb.
The other half of the band, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Agnetha Faltskog, missed the event due to prior engagements - ruling out a reunion at the ceremony.
And, despite constant reports of a get together, Reuss insisted the chances of an Abba reunion are slim.
She said, "We haven't performed or sang together for 28 years; we broke up in '82. And I never think we will reunite again - it's a bit too late for that."
Andersson teamed up with Faith Hill and the house band to perform Abba classic The Winner Takes It All at the ceremony, where Jimmy Cliff, The Hollies, The Stooges, Genesis and music boss David Geffen were also inducted.
