Holy fuck. R16 actually made me reconsider Soap.
He always, even at a young age, had that smarmy superannuated look that so many British "entertainers" have.
wasn't he dating/beating up Heather Graham in the early 90s...Supposedly "wonderful" is about her.
He was a SUPER HOT piece of ass in the 80s, still hot during Northern Exposure/Slam dance but just a little sad now.
LOVED his music from the late 70's through Wonderful..
I'd forgotten all about Wonderful. I loved that song!
He was beautiful and aged so well, only looking awful with that grey beard.
He must have kept his bipolar disorder very well hidden or developed it later in life. He was relatively old when he emerged, he's more from the punk era.
Saw him live last month. He can still put on a hell of a show.
He may no longer be a gorgeous 20 something but he's looking great for nearly 60.
He was shot...
Loved him in Nomads.
r25, I'm seeing him twice in the US this summer. Does his show rely mostly on old hits, or does he manage to fit in some of the new tunes as well?
[R27] it's a two hour show with a mix of old and new including some reworkings of earlier hits.
I admit that I was quite surprised that he's a real musician not just an 80s pop product. I saw him last November too and enjoyed it so much I went back for more.
[quote]it still boggles my mind that he is by all reports heterosexual
It shocked the hell outta me, too, R15, when I found out he's straight -- and just recently, too. I've literally all these years believed him to be gay.
If it helps I thought he was gay until just this minute R29.
All I knew was that he's struggled with bipolar disorder.
He's on my bookshelf.
With the books.
And the plants.
He is one of my guilty pleasures. His songs are often very catchy, very well crafted. I love Strip, despite the fact it was produced by Phil Collins. Love Puss 'n Boots too
So gorgeous. I sat in the same chair as him right when he left a restaurant and all I could think was that ass was just on this chair. Turned me on. Okay okay I was very young, ha, but he was beautiful.
And I thought one of the best dancers for a white man ever. Just the way he moved.
His US tour starts tonight. Anyone here going?
He either did or was going to perform on 1 of the late night shows this week-I know I either dvr'd it or have it scheduled to record. I'll post my opinion after seeing it.
I think it's a shame and he Vanity never had babies together. He was her first famous bf. She was with him before Prince. They would have had ridiculously beautiful babies whether they were boys or girls.
