Roxette: The incredible life of singer Marie Fredriksson who died after brave battle

Marie met her husband, keyboardist Mikael “Micke” Bolyos, during the Australian leg of Join the Joyride! in December 1991.

She later said: “If [we] hadn’t met, I don’t know if I would have been able to continue in Roxette much longer. I couldn’t handle the personal side of life on tour. I was hanging out in bars, drinking too much.

“I was sad a lot of the time and had a hard time with the press, when I always had to be nice and say the right things, always having to be available to everybody, always putting on a smile and being happy.

“Marie Fredriksson the performer had grown in stature, at the expense of Marie the private person. I had less and less space to be myself. And when I was myself I felt uncertain, small and lost.”
