Simple Minds-Celebrate:the Greatest Hits-Jim Kerr-part two

After forming in the Post-Punk late Seventies, then rising to heady international success in the MTV Eighties, there was a real question by 1995 whether Scottish band Simple Minds, lead by Charlie Burchill and Jim Kerr, could remain relevant in a third decade. In the conclusion of my 2013 interview with Kerr, he reveals just how close they came to packing it in, at a time when American Grunge grew so dominant without a keyboard in sight. Also, Jim Kerr shares their  song “Broken Glass Park” now included on their excellent new album Big Music , highly recommended. See Simple Minds packing them in now on tour. Part two of two –Redbeard
