News about the upcoming Roxette biography

As revealed some months ago, Swedish author Sven Lindström (“Att vara Per Gessle” in 2007) is preparing a new biography about Roxette. An interview with “Sydsvenskan” now confirmed the ongoing work. He visited Roxette at the South American tour and is now waiting for more interviews to complete the book for a likely release in 2013. Sven about the project:

It’s a pretty unlikely story, both about how they broke through, and how they came back a few years ago. There will also be an insight into the fans’ relationship to the band.

It is a dramatic story that this band has been through, and I think it will be quite surprising when you see the big picture. They have done a trip like no band in Sweden have done.

    • Since Roxette was more successful abroad than in native Sweden, it would make more sense if the book is published in English. I hope it won’t be ‘Att vata Per Gessle’ 2 – I’ve been studying Swedish since March, but still don’t have enough knowledge of the language to read a whole book!
