I enjoyed this article on a British ABBA tribute band that supposedly performed a secret concert for Vladimir Putin. However, Russia's super trouper doesn't seem to be pleased about the rumor:
Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied that Putin attended any such party on or around Jan. 22, adding "neither Mr. Putin nor his apparatus ordered any band of this kind."
"I have no doubt that he likes some music of Abba," Peskov said. "But he simply wasn't there."
