ABBA's hall of fame nod

ABBA, The Hollies the Stooges, Genesis and Jimmy Cliff are to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Great deals on musical instruments

Benny Andersson never expected ABBA to make it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The four piece Swedish band - who are set to join the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year, along with The Hollies, the Stooges, the Genesis and Jimmy Cliff - will join the prestigious roll of honour at a ceremony in New York, much to the surprise of the 'Waterloo' hitmakers.

Benny said: "I didn't think this would happen, because we were a pop band, not a rock band. Being a foreigner from the North Pole, this feels really good."

Meanwhile, Stooges frontman Iggy Pop, 62, said he was delighted to finally be recognised.

He said: "We've been rejected seven times, and we would have set a record, I think, if it happened again."

The acts will be inducted at a ceremony on March 15.
