I love that song. I miss Soul Asylum, one of my favorite 90's bands (and I don't like too many 90's bands)

Didnt he marry one of Banarama and take up surfing?

I beg to differ that he was "half" of Wham.

These were two of my favorites as well. I saw the Fixx at a People's Fair here in Denver about two years ago. Cy Curnin has obviously been working out. He's become the Joe Piscapo of aging rockers. They sounded great, really. But it was sad in a way. A band that started at roughly the same time as U2 and here they were playing at a free concert for maybe 500 people who were barely paying attention. And U2, well...

And didn't you see the special VH1 had on the Alarm? I can't remember the name of the series but the idea was to pull together a band for one show who had long since broken up and stopped speaking. The Alarm was featured on that just last summer. When they revved into 68 Guns I literally started tearing up. It was bizarre.

I did see the vh1 special, it was bands reunited. Even though the Fixx started at the same time as U2, well, no comparison.
