Think I did this for some radio station. Could be Micke Nord on lead guitar and b-vox. Doesn’t sound like Christoffer L…. /P.
Tuesday talk: Discussing if there should be a double vinyl-LP + single CD as well as the DVD when the Rox Live Adventure finally comes out quite soon. What d’ya think?

A Sunday story:
Bumped into an old Leonard Cohen-song on the radio. It’s very rare you hear him on the air these days. LC is a master. I learned how to play his fingerpickin’ guitar-style on “Hey, that’s no way to say goodbye” a long long time ago. A tricky thing. Try it, it’s fun! And I spent months translating at least a dozen of his beautiful songs into Swedish back in the mid 70’s. I don’t know why, I just had to do it. His words are dark, sensual and exciting, his music is simple but still strangely complicated and his melodies are most of the time truly works of a master. Viva LC.
Now it’s Formula 1-time, folks! /P.

Med Gyllene Tider, Roxette och som soloartist har Per Gessle levererat hits i över 30 år. Och han har inga planer på att varva ned än. – Det kommer säkert fler dur- och moll-ackord från mig.
