Hotel Rival the scene for Benny Andersson music video

Details are a bit scant right now, but yesterday a music video for a Benny Andersson song was recorded at Benny’s Hotel Rival in Stockholm.

Swedish Blogger Becky E-J tells me that the production company for the shoot was Callboy. She has written a short account (in Swedish) of her day on the shoot, with some behind-the-scenes photos.

Benny was so down-to-earth and ‘normal’, she said it was impossible to think of how successful, famous (and wealthy!) he is.

Becky can’t recall the name of the song but says it was recorded for "some of his employees" at the hotel and the video is destined for the Hotel Rival website (among other places) in time.

  1. Thanks for the news Becky, I look forward to the video appearing on the HOTEL RIVAL website.I was a guest at the HOTEL RIVAL in July 2008 for the Mamma Mia Premier weekend and met ABBA for the first time. I was lucky enough to meet Benny by chance in the hotel lobby the day after the premier when he had called in to collect, I think, his accordian. He had all the time in the world to talk to me and posed for a picture with me. Its a day that I will never forget. It struck me also how very down to earth he is, very humble and unasumming, considering how incredibly famous and wealthy he is. An absolute gentleman. Happy days.
