ABBA’s drummer, Ola Brunkert, was found dead at his home in Spain yesterday from an apparent accident. Ola was not part of the four best-known members, but he played on all their albums.
CNN reports that Ola fell against a glass partition that separated his kitchen from his garden. The glass broke and cut his throat. Police believe he bled to death in his garden. A police rep said, “A glass door in the kitchen of the house was shattered and it appears that this man fell through the door. He then managed to get out into the garden where he died.”
I fucking hate sliding glass doors. I always wondered why my mother put those tacky ass glow-in-the-dark stars on her glass door and now I know why.
Ola lived alone. He was 61. An ABBA tragedy is the worst kind of tragedy. Sadness.
