    Hey fellow members,

    what do you do for your living?

    I was working as a paramedic for ten years and switched about half a year ago to occupational safety in healthcare facilities.

    In both the jobs I spent plenty much time driving around, which is great because the car is quite a good place for listening to good music, right?

    Now this does interest me. Bit of an ABBA fan, went to Stockholm especially to visit the museum. Their new tracks are taking longer to materialise than Power Up!

    That's where I worked, I was an operations manager. Directly employed by Björn as he was the owner and founder. He stopped by occasionally, as he has many other businesses. I hope you liked it! It's closed now due to Covid, like everything else here.

    The fun part about the job was getting to know the original crew personally, they used pretty much the same people during their whole career.
    It was very interesting to work with the orginal producer and engineer from the Polar Studios.
    The only one from ABBA I haven't met is Agnetha. Benny is a super nice and ultra-friendly guy buy the way.

    About their new tracks, I think they were supposed to launch the songs though some new virtual reality-thing they haven't been able to finish yet. As far as I know the songs are recorded and finished.

    @Zan

    It was a great museum and a lovely city. Would that there was a permanent exhibition as well thought out for AC/DC. I went up with the holograms to sing Dancing Queen (just my wife was in there when I went up)... as the song kicked
    off a big crowd walked in and I felt very self conscious!

    Yeah I saw there was maybe a virtual tour in the offing. I’m actually more interested in hearing their new tunes than I was to hear Power Up (probably shouldn’t admit
    that here)

    When we got married my wife walked down the aisle to ‘Arrival’ which was perfect.

    Benny and Bjorn both seem decent, down to earth guys.

    I was hitchhiking once and a car stopped. I got in and it was a bunch of nuns. One asked what I did for a living and when I said postman she said "Do you enjoy it?" and I replied "It's better than walking the streets!" The silence was deafening.
    That's a true story.
