Harpo 1976

76-09-23 Harpo BP

Swedish pop singer Harpo on a back-page poster in Bravo of 23 September 1976. Earlier that year Harpo had had an international hit with “Movie Star”; his current hit at the time was “Horoscope”. The elephant top left was a regular stage presence at Harpo concerts; usually it was his wife inside the costume.

Harpo didn’t have a great time of it in the years that followed. In 1978 he was jailed for refusing to serve in the Swedish military. Some time later he was severely injured when a horse kicked his face.
