Greetings.

Wow... I'm confused about that section, I'm talking about "ask the band". Doesn't the title mean that the entire band should be able to answer the according to the question?, I mean, Magnus is a great guy, I like the band, I have the same respect for everyone and I like everyone in same way, but what about Nina? for example.

Im not intended to offend anyone
With all due respect, KiLTRO

(It's just my opinion, structured as a suggestion)

Lasse answers two or three questions - once in a blue moon.
Bengt has answered two or three.

It would be nice if they all maybe sat down for a half hour every month or so and answered a few questions. I suppose the band members have at one point browsed through that section of the site, seen all of the "come to Mexico NOW!!" "questions", and didn't see the point in spending all that much time on it.

Ah well ... as far as compromise goes ... Mags is a bloody good one.

And by the way... I think some of you are kinda grumpy. Which other bands have the same service? I can only think of Belle and Sebastian where all members except Stuart log on and answer qs. A proud example, Im a little envious.

Nuff said.

I see it as Magnus being the ambassador for The Cardigans. Hahahaha! And what a great job he does. I don't think we thank him enough! Let's turn this thread around shall we.

Magnus: Great many thanks big bad bassman! It's muchly appreciated. Cheers!

Whatever the thoughts about other band members answering questions, i think Magnus deserves more credit. He comes on here most days (when he could be playing golf!! or something) and answers a lot of questions, some of which he's probably answered a thousand times before. it must get a bit tedious.

So cheers Magnus.

As Kiltro said, I'm sure no offense was meant - especially to you, Magnus. I'm sure everyone here appreciates Magnus' efforts and work (and I do believe it is work!) answering so many questions.

I'll bet the other Cardies appreciate him for it too! He's a good man for it.

Yep, Magnus does a great job providing such service. We all appreciate Mags' efforts on answering so many questions, wich probably are in the most, the same, as bassman said.

AVE MAGNUS!!

Instead of complain that only Magnus answer q's, we should all be very thankfull for his time. And as someone already wrote in 'Ask the band' his answers are always insightfull and humorous. I don't know many bands that spend so much time on their fans - it is just an other reason to love the band even more. So in short - Tak Magnus!!

Maggnus has become my current favourite member - he answers all my questions, even the ones about the maltesers being chucked away by my mum..

I've never seen questions answered by Bengt, I think I've seen one or two answered by Lasse, not seen any answers from Peter, I've seen Nina answer a question on Magnus' account and there are a few at the beginning she answered aswell. [I remember her saying something about forgetting her password all the time aswell]

I'm not saying Peter and Bengt have not answered any, I'm just saying I've never *seen* any answers from them.

ATTN: Peter, Bengt, Lasse & Nina - GET YOUR BACKSIDES ON THIS SITE AND ANSWER QUESTIONS!!



"Nuff said"

riot.

Magnus - at least you answer questions ;-)

haha! Maybe fans just need to put "ATTN: Magnus" on the parcel when they send a gift to the band at Tambourine Studios. That way you get more presents or at least first dibs. When the rest of the band see how much loot Magnus gets from fans, they'll beg to answer more questions.

Yeah you know, I dont wanna come off bitching, its just that I get the same qs all the time and its mind bogging. Then again, I am not in this to be worshipped or anything, I quite enjoy it and obviously I am the best at it in this band.
So as long as the qs are relevant and so on, I am happy doing it.

But people should start scroll thru the last 2-3 pages before they ask something. Seriously.

kind regards

True. I hear ya. It's actually getting frustrating for me to read all the multiple incidents of you answering the same questions. It is weird because a lot of those questions are answered here in the forum too.

I think it's just laziness. Some people just don't want to take the time to actually read a little bit.

weird, i'd rather spend days trying to and interesting question or to ask for something i'm really into than just taking the opportunity to write the same stuff all over.
it's all about a band i love, so i wouldn't wanna come across stupid or nervewrecking. lets not make it that much waste of time for magnus!

I read in one interview that Lasse can't type quickly and get very angry when it's necessary to answer the same silly question. As I remember Peter is not very interested in computers, and the same or similar things with the others, except our dear Magnus. So what we need to say : THANK YOU MAGNUS VERY MUCH! You like playing golf, interesting?!
