ABBA’s Dancing Queen
The famous ABBA piano that was used in the creation of ABBA’s Dancing Queen (and is responsible for that famous glissando that starts the whole song off) is going up for auction next month at Sotheby’s. It’s going to be just one of a number of pieces of memorabilia going for auction in a ‘Rock and Pop’ auction and the piano is expected to fetch in the region of £800,000. This ABBA piano was designed by Georg Bolin and has come from Atlantis Grammofon which is the studio where ABBA recorded some of their hit songs back in 1976. This piano is said to have been the inspiration behind many of ABBA’s hit songs, which perhaps explains why there is such a hefty price tag!
