Ola Brunkert
Birth: Sep. 15, 1946, Sweden
Death: Mar. 16, 2008
Madrid, Spain

Musician. Born in Sweden, Ola Brunkert had been a jazz drummer, also being a member of the blues band Slim's Blues Gang, before joining pop group Science Poption in the mid-1960s. Then, through working with guitarist Janne Schaffer in the jazz-pop group Opus III later in the decade, he started getting work as a session musician from 1970 onwards. Ola's first known ABBA-related session was also the group's very first single, People Need Love. Together with bass player Rutger Gunnarsson, Ola is probably the only musician to appear on all ABBA albums - he was one of the most frequently used Swedish sessions musicians during the 1970s. Ola also toured with ABBA in 1977, 1979, and 1980. He died in an apparent domestic accident at his home in Artŕ, Mallorca. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
