    I initially came across this bit of news on the band's entry at wikipedia, which linked to the following article....

    uh-uh-uh-huh-huh...I hope this much is true.

    Actually, I'm fairly indifferent, I just wanted to be the first one to make the obvious quip [​IMG]

    Because they weren't one-hit wonders?

    Spandau Ballet weren't one-hit wonders either, even if they were bigger in the UK and Europe than they ever managed in the US. Between "True", "Gold" and "Through The Barricades" that's three reasonably big hits even in the US (they had plenty more in the UK).

    I for one would be pleased if they managed to get back together, growing up they were my favourite band and I still listen to their stuff.

    The lawsuit years ago wouldn't have helped, but none of them has done particularly well on his own since; Tony embarrasingly won that reality show for failed has-been stars, the Kemps moved into acting, with Martin doing reasonably well, whilst Gary being the songwriter I guess was the most flush anyway with his songwriting royalties (which was the subject matter of the lawsuit), but I don't think any of them are really flush nowadays. Which is always the best motivator for a reunion, yes?
