Dear Roxers, thanks for an overwhelming 2014!
Not only did we start the Rox XXX-tour in style, but also managed to squeeze in some minutes to do a fab Marie solo-tour + release a couple of PG lyrics/drawings/diaries/nonsense-books, a PG demo CD-box as well as starting up a brand new Roxette album.
Per has just put up a slew of new merchandise on Facebook. Key fobs, a tank top for "les femmes," a tote bag "both for vegetarians and meat lovers," a new baseball hat and stickers, all with the new Rox 30 logo.
Stumbled on this link about a Johan Lindell song, produced by Clarence in the mid-80s, that went viral because for 9 years nobody could figure out who recorded it!
UPPSALA – The Daily Roxette received a copy of Maria Sörgjerd’s book “I en underbar ballong – en bok om att älska Roxette” (In a Wonderful Balloon – a Book about Loving Roxette” published by her own company Fenomena förlag.
VERONA/STOCKHOLM – Allegrini, located just north of Verona, Italy, is the leading producer in the Valpolicella Classico area and one of the most highly acclaimed wineries in Italy and throughout the world.
UPDATED: Per Gessle is “releasing” two wines later this fall; Kurt & Lisa (named after his parents) and Furet (named after the neighborhood he grew up in.)
“The wines started out as being made exclusively for Hotel Tylösand but they turned out so amazing I wanted to have a go on the commercial market as well,” says Per to The Daily Roxette.
