I`ve been a fan of Jim Kerr and Simple Minds since I saw them in Montreal in the fall of 1981. I was captivated, I didn`t know too much about them then but since I have seen the light.. My favorite show was in the fall of 1982 just after new gold dream , they were amazing, especially Jim Kerr, he was so energetic and happy and adorable, definately in love.. I still am inspired and moved by their music to this day, haven`t been following the newer stuff, i`m bad with that.
