Simple Minds Didn't Want To Be Cowards


Simple Minds Ariana Grande

Simple Minds insisted it would be ''cowardly'' to have cancelled their gig in Manchester on Tuesday (23.05.17).

The 'Alive and Kicking' hitmakers took to the stage at the city's Bridgwater Hall less than 24 hours after Ariana Grande's concert at the Manchester Arena was hit by an alleged terrorist attack and admitted the tragedy had made them question whether or not they should go ahead with the gig.

Frontman Jim Kerr told the audience: ''This morning we woke, there was a decision to be made - do we play or do we cancel and leave town?

The 61st Ivor Novello Awards took place yesterday (May 19th 2016) in London and honoured several classic and contemporary artists from Adele to Simple Minds.

Molly Ringwald Covers The Breakfast Club's 'Don't You (Forget About Me)


Molly Ringwald John Hughes Simple Minds

Molly Ringwald, of The Breakfast Club fame, has covered the film's main theme song for her new jazz album Except Sometimes. The singer puts a new spin on the catchy track, originally by Simple Minds.

"When I recorded the album...it was really soon after John Hughes passed away. And he was in my mind a lot," Ringwald told Vulture when asked why she decided to record the classic track. "And, I don't know, I felt like I wanted to sing a tribute to him. And also, I wanted to incorporate who I was into who I am." The Breakfast Club - directed by the late great John Hughes - and starring Ringwald, Emilio Estevez and Anthony Michael Hall followed five teenagers as they spend a Saturday detention together and come to realise they are all deeper than their respective stereotypes.
