Wolfgang >Bubi< Heilemann was one of the most renowned celebrity photographers of the seventies. He had an exclusive contract with BRAVO, the music magazine with the largest circulation in Europe, and every superstar of the period posed for him.
ABBA was probably photographed by him as intense as no other photographer did. Already their legendary performance at the Grand Prix he was one of a few only who took photos of them. Since this day in 1974 until Abba's breakup in 1982 Bubi Heilemann stayedat the side of Anni-Frid (Frida), Benny, Björn and Agnetha.
The book combines out of the immense ABBA-Archive about 500 of of the most greatest photos - extended by the author's stories about funny, amusing, and amazing anecdotes of his exoeriences with the famed celebrities of the seventies music biz: how ABBA's famous logo came into being during a photo session; how he painted the town red with Mick Jagger and how they later talked about everything under the sun at Bubi's kitchen table in Munich; how he met the Beatles at the Star Club in Hamburg, and how he visited John and Yoko Ono in their castle in England.

Message from Björn Ulvaeus:
"I've told my friend Buni many times that the most tedious element of a pop career is the photo session. To pose for hours in front of a camera dressed in strage outfits wwhen you could have been writing, recording or perfoming. Well, you can imagine. It might be tedious, but it's oh so important. I realise that very much when I browse through Bubis book - truly a career in pictures. And we did have fun!"
