Ola Brunkert

Profile:
Swedish drummer, painter, and photographer. Born September 15th, 1946, in Örebro, Sweden - Died March 16th, 2008 in Mallorca, Spain.
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 (2) 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 / Merry-Go-Round (En Karusell)". 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.
Married to Eva Rydberg in 1969; divorced in 1972.
