To DrewL: to answer your question about Roxette:

Yes, they are still active - they are just taking a break.
In 2003 they released the album "The Pop Hits" and the single "Opportunity Nox". This was shortly after the tragic news at the end of 2002 that singer Marie Fredriksson had brain cancer. The tumor was removed though, and subsequent reports stated that she was recovering well.

Meanwhile Roxette's male member Per Gessle has had a VERY successful 2003 with his solo Swedish album "Mazarin" which went 4x Platinum (and 2x Platinum on Blue-Box), and as reported earlier he's reuniting "briefly" with previous Swedish band Gyllene Tider in 2004 for an album and a tour.

As to the future of Roxette - Per has said both he and Marie are planning on continuing, but it all depends on Marie's recovery and how she "feels" in future.

Current exciting news though, is that Marie Fredriksson is planning to release her first ever solo album in English in 2004!

Christo - good to see you're still a regular tourist on these waves!

Btw - "silence" is for Gigi D'Agostino maybe (who knows how to make it sound GOOD!), but not for you! (Also wondering what happened to surfers Jannie and Rian... u still out there?)

To DrewL: you're welcome!

This news on The Daily Roxette:


BRUSSELS - Copy protection of CDs is illegal, claims the Belgian consumer rights organization, Test Aankoop, who sued EMI, BMG, Sony and Universal for copy protecting their CDs. The companies will have to defend their position regarding copy protection in court. "This kind of protection violates the consumers' statutory right to copy. The words 'copy control' do not free the record companies of the law," the organization says in a press release.
According to Test Aankoop today's CD protection misses the target when it comes to hacking and record piracy, while it undermines the consumers' rights to use the CD as they want for private purposes.
Their Norwegian counterpart Forbrukerrådet follows the case closely. "We find it positive that the question has been asked, and we'll monitor the upcoming lawsuit with excitement," Paal Bjönness, legal councelor of Forbrukerrådet says. "This will probably not be the last lawsuit of this kind," Paal continues.
Last year both a French and an Australian consumer rights organization sued record companies.

I think this is a good thing, since many people who bought "Copy Protected" CD's complain that it won't play on all their CD players... and it DOESN'T stop people from copying it... in other words it just creates problems!

Some slightly-aging stars still more than their worth in gold... and who know how to take the mickey out of the fact that they're not too young anymore...
Norwegian superstars A-Ha had a very clever remark in the back of the booklet of their "Lifelines" CD: "Youth is wasted on the young";
and Per Gessle from Roxette (briefly reuniting with his 80's Swedish supergroup Gyllene Tider this year for a tour), is calling their new concert tour "How Old Can You Get??" - gotta be the best name for a tour I've heard in a long time!!
(Per also adds his life is really wonderful right now, and that the only thing that hasn't gone the way he would prefer lately is his receding hairline that tells him he's reached middle age. "I thought this was something that only happened to one's father," he says.

'How old can you get?' - yes, like Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Red Hot Chili Peppers?, Deborah Harry (Blondie) and... Madonna!
