In the upcoming book about Norwegian Band A-ha, "The Swing of Things", Morten is likened to Freddie.A-ha's manager Terry Slater has seen it all in the rock business. He knows all about what sudden fame does to young men. Paul, Morten and Magne each reacted to the shock differently, Slater says:
'Morten liked it and experimented with it. He was Freddie Mercury.'
Editor's note: A-ha previously performed 'Killer Queen' in an audience with the Norwegian Royal Family. Morten has previously cited Freddie as an inspiration. On a personal note, A-ha are also one of my favourite bands...
