★ The Daily Roxette Archives


Wonderful, but terribly touching article about #MarieFredriksson’s book in Expressen. Marie tells about her illness and the effects of it, Micke and his support and how they got over those tough times, how they talked about her own funeral and how Micke prepared her for death, meetings with famous artists, why they didn’t invite Per and Åsa to their wedding in the ’90s, Roxette world tours and how she feels nowadays and what the problem is with her leg, etc. Oj. This book will be tough to read for all of us, but I think one can’t imagine how tough it was for Marie to tell her story and more than that, to get over those terrible years. Not just for her, but for her family as well. <3 /PP Read the complete article here: http://www.expressen.se/noje/artisten-jag-har-forlorat-manga-ar/ Some quotes from her from the book: "To meet Micke was to come home, after all the years of searching." "I have become much more afraid to move out on my own. It's tragic. I don't even go out into the garden myself anymore. I need someone to hold, even for short distances. This spring, if it's hot, I would like to go out and sit for a while and enjoy the sun. I like the warmth so much." "Finally, it feels like I have resigned myself to the fact that I have a radiation damage to live with. That this is what it is. I've lost many years because of the disease. Furthermore, it's sad to grow old. But every day I think how thankful I am for sitting here. And that I can still sing."
