    There was a roughly seven-year difference between his birth and those of his two older siblings.
    In a translated 2017 interview, he admitted to being overweight and feeling grotesque in clothing.
    He toured Europe in the wake of Marie Fredriksson’s brain tumor, going so far as to call the project ‘Per Gessle’s Roxette’ (2018; she died the following year at 61).
    MonoMind wasn’t his first pseudonym; that would be ‘Son of a Plumber.’
    While his sister was into Elvis Presley, he would gravitate toward the Beatles and the Stones. ‘Son of a Plumber’ would not be a for-show title (it included the instrumental ‘Kurt — the fastest plumber in the West’).
    Laura Branigan performed a song that he had written for Modern Talking’s Thomas Anders.
    He collaborated with and wrote for Frida and Belinda Carlisle.
    He would go on to win almost all of the awards for which he was nominated (including several Grammis, or Swedish Grammies).
    In a 2020 radio interview, he admitted to considering Fredriksson like a sister.
