Very sad. Brain cancer is terrible, had a friend die that way a few years ago. That she continued to perform as long as she did is a testament to the art.

There's an interesting quote in there about feeling more vulnerable singing in Swedish. Which is kind of interesting when you hear the same delivery in Spanish in Baladas en Español as it was in English.

A few weeks back I was talking about an obsession I had with Sweden when I was quite young but couldn’t work out where that came from or why.

However thinking about it, I loved Roxette in the late 80s (around the same time) so I wonder if they were the catalyst. I’m starting to think so.

Anyway, RIP. Far too young.

Roxette was great back then when we were young.
