Re: Hollywood: stop wrecking something good!
"people have been trying to milk the likes of Abba and Elvis for ages (maybe you missed the Abba inspired musical a while back)"
I think his point was that ABBA as a *band* and ongoing entity (effectively) broke up around the time they were clearly reaching their natural end and didn't feel compelled to continue working together for commercial reasons or because they didn't know what else to do.
Like The Beatles, their legacy may have been exploited, but the band itself didn't keep going past its prime and sully that legacy. (Even The Beatles sort-of reformed in the mid-90s; ABBA never did, and speaking as an ABBA fan, I wouldn't want them to do that now).
