Thank You Black Jesus!: Linux_Yes: If i was DD id be enjoying my retirementwhen you like playing music and being on stage while getting paid very handsomely for it, you don't retire as long as the physical ability to do those things is there.retirement takes two of those things off the table.
rickythepenguin: [images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com image 331x499]bio that just came out about 3-4 months ago, very fun read. It ends with, "in Jan 2020, the band convened to announce a world tour for summer / fall 2020. about a month later, the world shut down. the end!"and funny anecdote; early 80s as they are the kings of MTV, they hired a roadie named "Simon". whenever the cast or crew asked for Simon to appear, inevitably, the wrong Simon would show up. one day a frustrated band member said to Simon Le Bon, after the 800th "wrong Simon" mixup, "do you have a farking middle name?"simon responded, "yes, Charles.""well then that farkin' settles it! From now on, your name is 'Charlie'."Book: "To this day, 35 years on, the band and their inner circle call Simon 'Charlie'."
snowybunting: I saw them at Clutch Cargo's in Detroit in 1982. It was better than I thought it was going to be, but I honestly don't recall all that much of it. Beer and...other things were involved.
Somaticasual: If only they'd announce it on Sunday, Sunday, Sunday....
the_end_is_rear: John Taylors auto biography is an excellent read also.
New Age Redneck: Saw them many years ago with David Bowie and The Georgia Satellites. John Taylor is an amazing bass player, check out "Rio".
