FactHe and Duran Duran were awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 1770 Vine Street in Hollywood, California.

Simon Le Bon is an English singer, songwriter and musician, best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the rock band Duran Duran and its offshoot, Arcadia. He is also a successful solo artist, with his debut album, Here, reaching the Top 10 in the UK and spawning the hit single “Hungry Like the Wolf”. Le Bon has appeared in two films, playing himself in the rockumentary Spice World and appearing as Durand Durand in the cult classic Barbarella. He has also modelled for brands such as Armani, Versace and Calvin Klein.

Born in Bushey, Hertfordshire, England on October 27, 1958, Simon John Charles Le Bon is the son of Ann (née Sheppard) and John Le Bon. His father was a milkman who later became a manager at an estate agents and his mother was a florist. He has two sisters, Suzanne and Jane, and a brother, David. Le Bon was educated at Tylers Croft Infants School, Bushey Meads Junior School and Ashlyns School, all in Hertfordshire. He then attended art college in Watford for one year before dropping out to pursue a career in music.

Le Bon’s musical career began in 1977 when he answered an advert in Melody Maker for a band called Duran Duran. He auditioned for the band and was successful, becoming the lead singer and one of the main songwriters. Duran Duran went on to become one of the biggest bands of the 1980s, with hits such as “Rio”, “Hungry Like the Wolf” and “Save a Prayer”. The band’s popularity waned in the early 1990s but they made a comeback with their 1993 album Duran Duran (The Wedding Album), which spawned the hit single “Ordinary World”. The band has continued to tour and release new music throughout the 2000s and 2010s.

In 1985, Le Bon released his first solo single, “Theme from Great Cities”, which reached number five in the UK. He has since released two solo albums, Here (1987) and Strange Behaviour (1989), both of which reached the Top 10 in the UK. His solo singles include “I Don’t Want Your Love” (1988) and “Peaceful Times” (1989).

Le Bon has been married to model Yasmin Parvaneh since 1985. The couple have three daughters: Amber Rose Tamara (born 1989), Saffron Sahara (born 1991) and Tallulah Pine (born 1994).

1[on Steve Strange] He was the leading edge of New Romantic.
2[on "Do They Know It's Christmas?"] I had Sting standing next to me when I recorded my bit and rather than make me feel nervous and uncomfortable, I took great comfort from that. I was very proud to be on a microphone next to Sting, I really was.
3Sex is by far and away much more interesting than cards or video games.
4Meeting Andy Warhol... cool, great... but it wasn't like someone giving me a Ferrari or anything.
5I've always rather fancied John. We're much more into each other.
6I'd spent my entire teenage years suffering one unrequited love affair after the other. I was so shy I couldn't even talk to girls. If I fancied them, I'd follow them home, but I didn't have the guts to approach them. I was a teenage stalker. The same went for John. The first time I saw him he was this geek with nicotine-stained fingers, trembling with fear at the prospect of having to meet people. And his name wasn't even John. It was Nigel. He was a Nigel with glasses, poor sod. I remember staring at his face and slowly realizing that he was rather beautiful, exquisite in fact. I mean, this was the best looking guy I'd seen in years, maybe my whole life. Losing his glasses and changing his name to John was the best thing he ever did. He was a man transformed. To see him in action was incredible. He could charm the knickers off anyone.
7I have very strange dreams, especially when I'm traveling. I had one recently that someone was sending me messages by spider. A spider would crawl up my right arm, go across my shoulders and down my left arm and then I'd understand the message. The messages came from my right hand - they were really stupid. I don't think it'll catch on.
8I am not a snob - ask anybody. Well, anybody who matters.
