Lead Singer’s Club

Duran Duran’s Simon LeBon reflects on his time recording their album “Thank You” the south of France:

“We were finishing ‘Thank You’ at Nick’s house in France, and I went to stay at [INXS lead singer] Michael Hutchence’s place nearby. Me and Michael and Bono were in this thing called the Lead Singers Club. For a couple of months in the summer of ’94 we lived it up in the south of France. Michael took drugs, but he had a good relationship with his girlfriend at the time. He certainly wasn’t suicidal or fucking up really badly. The club’s main meeting place was Nick’s swimming pool.”
