Simon Le Bon’s Biography
Le Bon was part of the choral group of his city since he was a child, but he also took theater courses. He attended Pinner County Grammar School, the same school where Elton John studied some years before. It appeared sometimes in commercials of television and in diverse productions of theater. He worked in an Israeli kibbutz – a collectivist agricultural farm in the style of the Soviet kolkhoz – in the Negev desert in Israel in 1978. Afterwards, he returned to England to attend the theater school of the University of Birmingham, before joining to the new band Duran Duran.
That year, Le Bon courted the young model Yasmin Parvaneh. He had seen his face in a magazine and called his fashion agency to tell him. They married on December 27, 1985, and Yasmin Le Bon began a very long career as a supermodel, which lasted more than twenty years. After suffering two spontaneous abortions, the couple had three daughters: Amber Rose Tamara (August 1989), Saffron Sahara (September 1991) and Tallulah Pine (September 1994).
Duran Duran was founded by two childhood friends, John Taylor and Nick Rhodes; together with singer / songwriter Stephen Duffy in 1978. But a year later, Duffy left the band, thinking they would not get anywhere. Since then, Duran Duran went through a series of training changes, establishing a guitarist and a drummer who built a powerful Pop sound, with mixes of Disco, Funk and Electronic Music, based on a solid rhythm section of Rock. All they needed was a charismatic singer with a different voice.
The then girlfriend of Le Bon Fiona Kemp (a waitress at the nightclub Rum Runner, where Duran Duran was rehearsing), introduced him to the band in May 1980, recommending him as a potential vocalist. Le Bon appeared at an audition wearing pink leopard pants and carrying a notebook with poetry notes written by him. Some of them would become the themes of Duran Duran’s first two albums. After listening to the songs that the band had composed, Simon thought they had a good combination. Le Bon agreed to try to expose Duran Duran in the summer; in six weeks, the band was already playing between Birmingham and London, on a national tour supported by Hazel O’Connor, and reached a recording agreement with EMI in December. From that moment, Le Bon never again continued his career as an actor.
In 1981, the band’s first album, Duran Duran, was released and they were quickly famous for being part of the New Romantic movement. Three albums happened after Duran Duran: Rio (1982), Seven and the Ragged Tiger (1983) and the live disc Arena (1984). Each album released was accompanied by a heavy custom development of a long concert tour. In mid-1984, the band decided to relax. The last work of Duran Duran at that time was an appearance in charity music Do They Know It’s Christmas? of Band Aid.
Le Bon was part of Arcadia, (group formed while Duran Duran was resting) that took on a somewhat gothic aspect not only in aesthetics but also in music.
After that space he rejoins Duran Duran’s somewhat diminished lineup (Andy Taylor retires and Roger Taylor had done so after the release of Arcadia’s album), leaving the quintet in a trio.
He continues his career with releases like “Notorious”, and “Big Thing” and in the 90 they record Liberty, which gives the group a new refresher.
Simon has done some work individually for different media and with different levels of success, showing that he is an artist interested in staying active and doing interesting things like the project of the film Synesthesia, Japanese manga movie.
