    Ola Brunkert was found dead late Sunday at his home in the town of Arta on Spain's Mediterranean island of Mallorca, the spokeswoman said.

    Police believe Brunkert may have fallen against a glass partition separating his home's kitchen from the garden, and the glass broke and fatally cut his throat, she said.

    "Can you hear the drums, Fernando?"

    The project director on my first archaeological dig woke us up at five every morning with Fernando. Good times.

    Ola, you'll be missed.

    @Pete
    that's Bs and Gs not As and Bs.

    i didn't actually know that ABBA had an official drummer. i figured the four were guitars and dance moves only.
    pardon my ignorance.
