The Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger paid a visit to the ABBA museum in Sweden on Monday night in search of inspiration for a similar attraction dedicated to his own band.

The “Paint It Black” singer made a special after-hours visit to ABBA The Museum in the group’s hometown of Stockholm, and he quizzed bosses about the running of the project.

Former ABBA member Bjorn Ulvaeus tells Sweden’s Expressen newspaper, “I heard he was on his way. I suspect something similar will be built for the Stones in London. That’s why he wanted to have a look at our place.”

The ABBA museum’s curator Ingmarie Halling adds, “It was an inspirational visit. He said they (the Rolling Stones) have saved lots of clothes to exhibit. He was very cute and asked a thousand questions… He was very curious and asked practical questions.”
