The list of nominees for the Rockheim museum’s “Hall of Fame” has already sparked a heated debate among so-called “music experts” in Norway. Still, at least everyone seem to agree that a-ha deserve their place on the list.
In a interview with the newspaper Dagbladet, Magne says that he appreciates the nomination:
“This is really great. a-ha is kind of existing in a “Hall of Fame” mode at the moment – after all we have nowhere else to be – so it’s a nice thing to be nominated.”
Dagbladet has also set up their own, highly unofficial, vote among their readers. a-ha is currently in second place, behind Jokke og Valentinerne.
“That’s cool, because I was certain that everyone were sick and tired of a-ha after everything that happened last year. So I would like to extend a big thank you to Dagbladet’s readers for their patience”, Magne says.
He doesn’t hide the fact that it’s good to be recognized:
“It’s important for us to feel represented in Norwegian music history, so in that sense it feels good.”
In other news, Morten apparently visited Moscow this weekend. He was there to speak/perform at a private event. Additional details were not available.
