Gene Simmons wants to team up with one of ABBA's legendary hitmaker Benny Andersson to write some new music. Simmons, who proved decades ago that he's not shy about seeking out favorite songwriters to collaborate with, contacted Bob Dylan back in 1991 for a songwriting session. Ultimate Classic Rock translated an interview the Kiss co-founder gave to the Swedish newspaper Expressen, in which he explained, “There are a lot of dedicated Swedish musicians. Roxette and ABBA are two names that I’m thinking about. ABBA is phenomenally good. I thought so immediately. Their music is the most important music from Sweden. Everyone in the world likes ABBA — even Ozzy Osbourne.”

Fans were shocked when Simmons' 2004 solo set Assh*ole featured the Simmons/Dylan co-write “Waiting For The Morning Light,” which the pair wrote back in 1991. Simmons' recently released, massive collection — Gene Simmons: The Vault Experience — which celebrates his 50 years in music, closes with a 15-minute snippet of his songwriting session with Dylan.
