Per on Lena-Maria Show November 13, 1980…
GOTHENBURG/ WAY OUT WEST FILMFESTIVAL UPDATE: Yes, had a wonderful time among friends who refused to stay outside in the sun and choose the dark cinema instead.
Felt good to watch the ROXETTE DIARIES in a big room. I’m sure you’re gonna love it when you see it. It brings back so many memories. Now… we’re off to Finland. Gig tomorrow y’all! Have a fab weekend! /P.
Great stuff from 1991! /P.

In today’s P4 Extra there was a 5 minutes long telephone interview with Per about the Roxette Diaries movie. You can listen it on the link below.
I helgen är det världspremiär för filmen Roxette Diaries, regisserad av Jonas Åkerlund, på Way Out West.
Roxette Diaries – The Review.
As the Jonas Åkerlund film has its World Premiere at the Way Out Festival in Sweden, TDR reviews this Roxette feast!
The Roxette Diaries movie has its premiere today at the Way Out West festival in Gothenburg. Per will be there to introduce the movie to the audience, which is due to start around 1500 CET. Only 90 minutes to wait…
Drammens Tidende did a short e-mail interview with #PerGessle about #Roxette before they perform at Elvefestivalen in Drammen on 22 August. Practice your Norwegian! Or read the short summary in English below. 😉 /PP
Besides some words about history (Roxette and Gyllene Tider), Per is talking about songwriting and that one has to follow his gut feeling. He tells “I’m actually quite miserable to notice what works with the public. I’m bad at picking singles. That is done by others.”
In the interview Mr. G says if it wasn’t music, he would probably work with something creative, achitecture or design.
Regarding what he is most proud of during Roxette’s 30 years he says it’s that they survived. “It’s a tough business that eats artists, musicians and songwriters for breakfast.” He mentions that without Roxette’s fantastic hit catalogue they could have never toured the world.
To the question what the difference is between Roxette in 1990 and 2015 he replied: “Musically we are much better now. What we miss is the youthful curiosity that was later replaced by experience. And we can not stay in the bar as long as back then.” [Well, this latter is not true for everybody in the band… 😉 /PP]
On my way to Gothenburg to watch this! /P.
Here’s the trailer for ROXETTE DIARIES! World Premiere tomorrow at the Way Out West Filmfestival in Gothenburg, Sweden. /P.
