Morten Harket about Magne: "Mags is ingeniously
childish and childishly ingenious. He is talented, spontaneous and
impulsive. He does everything recklessly and with so much energy.
In contrast to Paul, Mags is totally disorganised and has no self-discipline
at all. Of the three of us, he is the one who really knows how to
live life to the full. Everything happens around Mags. Personally,
I've learned an awful lot from being around him.
Paul Waaktaar-Savoy about Magne: "Mags is impulsive. Dashes
around. Throughout the years I've often wondered: Is he a complete
fool or a genius? Has he got talent or hasn't he? He can say things
which are really dumb, but then he'll suddenly switch on, put things
in their place and come up with the idea that we've all been fumbling
for. I think he's both a fool and a genius. There has, at times,
been a tough competitive relationship between us, which has been
a driving force for us both. I have always had great respect for
him and belief in him as an artist and musician."
Magne about himself: "I have always been hyperactive. I've
always been told that I waste too much energy on the wrong things,
but I think it's better to do everything and rely on some of it
