Per Gessle

As one half of the duo Roxette, Per Gessle became one of the most successful Swedish artists ever. Gessle not only has a gift for catchy hooks, but he has also worked diligently to succeed worldwide throughout his entire career. When the power pop band Gyllene Tider failed to do so -- but still became one of the best-selling bands in Sweden -- he disbanded the group and tried a solo career, until finally settling on the duo format in Roxette, together with Marie Fredriksson.
