ABBA associate John Spalding dead

6 October, 2011

The Official International ABBA Fan Club reports that ABBA associate John Spalding died on Saturday 1 October 2011. Spalding was head of Bocu Music, the company that owned the publishing rights to most of ABBA’s songs in the UK and Ireland.

Due to his long business relationship and friendship with ABBA manager Stig Anderson, dating back to the start of the 1970s, Spalding became International Vice President of Polar Music International AB in the late ’70s.

Spalding became well known to ABBA fans through his regular appearances in the official ABBA Magazine, published in the UK between 1977 and 1983.
