    I finally saw Simple Minds for the first time on Sunday night in Toronto. It was a great show with a great setlist. I'm kicking myself for having waited so long to see them. So many good shows missed. The show was made just a little bit more interesting due to the fact that Josh Homme was up front on the guitarists side rocking the fuck out to Simple Minds! Kinda weird.

    I had no idea they were still together writing music. Wow. Will definitely check them out.

    No, Mel Gaynor left a few years ago apparently.

    They have a younger female drummer now who was quite good. 

    Only original members still there are Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill.

    Jim Kerr ought to be the only one who matters
