Personal Quote:

[on Tony Hadley's resignation in 2017] What Tony [Tony Hadley] decided to do doesn't just steal special moments and memories from the band. It also steals them from the fans. We all like to see Eighties bands because those performers and those songs trigger memories, so the fact Tony chose to take that away from so many people is sad. See more »

Trivia:

He played bass in the 1980s pop band Spandau Ballet. His older brother, Gary Kemp, was the guitarist, synthesizer player and songwriter. His other bandmates were Tony Hadley, John Keeble and Steve Norman. See more »
