Remembering Talk Talk’s Mark Hollis

February 25th, 2019

“We, Duran Duran, are very sad to learn that one of music’s great innovators Mark Hollis has died. The band Talk Talk, which he co-founded & fronted, were on tour with us in 1982; it made for a tremendous & very entertaining bill. Mark was the main songwriter of some truly great songs, including “It’s My Life” & “It’s A Shame”. In 1988 the extraordinary album “Spirit of Eden” was released. His talent will be remembered & his music will live on.” – Simon Le Bon, February 25, 2019
