Per Gessle on MJ’s death. Sort of.

Today on DagensSvenskbladet, Swedish humorous site, was published an article about Per Gessle and “his close relation” to Michael Jackson entitled “Gessle: It could’ve been me as well”. The title says all. To be honest, I do not see any point in translating more of this fake interview. I suppose, it was thought to be funny, but I do not really think it is.

(Updated) Per commented on it on his Twitter page on July 11 :

No, this “interview” is 100% fake. It’s supposed to be funny, I think. Didn’t get it though.

By the way – the only thing Per said regarding the death of Michael Jackson was on June 26 on his own website:

Incomprehensible and terribly sad. A master has left us. We will never experience anyone like him again.

In bold: these songs will be missing on the CD version

So now we know that there won’t be any Roxette live songs on this album and it’s very probable that three songs from London show will be the same as these from Sirius programme. The same will probably happen with Stockholm 1 which will be on DVD.

Big interview with Per, 2 new Roxette tracks

There’s a big interview with Per on www.gessle.com, mainly about the Party Crasher tour experiences. The band members promised each other to let this tour literary “never end”. Per will fly to NYC to get an US release for the album.

Today I asked Per on twitter if Roxette aim for a whole album or just some tracks. He responded “2 tracks. that’s it for now.” Not exactly the answer I dreamed of! But we’ll see how it continues. Wonder how these songs will be released…

Update: The interview was moved to The Daily Roxette.
