Gary James Kemp Wiki Biography

Gary Kemp was born in Islington, London in October 1959. On his 10th birthday, he got his first guitar from his parents. In the 70s, he and his younger brother, Martin Kemp, went to learn drama at Anna Scher's acting school. Then, in 1978, Gary Kemp formed "The Makers". After Richard Miller left, his brother replaced him on bass. That's when Gary ...

1We owe a lot to Iggy. When we first walked into those Billy's and Blitz clubs, that was basically called Bowie night. And I think "Nightclubbing" was being played, that was one of the first tracks we heard in there. Everything from Bowie to Lou Reed to Iggy to Kraftwerk, that was the soundtrack that we were inspired by in 1979 when we formed Spandau Ballet.
2What we did have then is no Internet, a youth culture that had to find itself on the streets and one that was rather brave in the way it presented itself as well because we were sort of dressing up on a shoestring. I think we liked the theatre of youth culture and pop culture that we'd fallen in love with like Bowie [David Bowie] and people like that.
3I remember Paul Weller saying to me, "Why aren't you writing a song about the miners?" I said, "Why aren't you, Paul?"
4Live Aid (1985), coming straight after the Miners' Strike and certainly the sense that the government weren't really listening to the people at that point, I think it was a sense of democracy that people got from Live Aid (1985). That they could do something above and beyond what the government wanted to do, just with a postal order.
5I wanted to write a soul song. We'd come out of that electronic, Blitz, dance movement. I wanted to get back into writing songs that I loved, which was black American soul songs. I wanted to write an Al Green song. Marvin Gaye obviously was a hero and I wanted to mention him in the song. (On "True")
6Punk was sort of an angry stance against things that had happened just before, against the pop of glam rock, against progressive rock. Music had become very staid and it was about the playing and people obsessed. Eric Clapton was God and we needed an enema within the art form, and punk did do that.
7Songwriting helps me sort out my personal problems. With acting, you're just a tool for someone's ideas.
8I like a band with sex and attitude. Coldplay and Travis do nothing for me.
9Kevin Costner told me that "True" was his and his wife's song. I'm not sure if that's a good thing because they split up soon after.
10The thought of going on tour with people like Toyah Wilcox is just appalling. I'm certainly not tempted.
11I think that Will Young is this generation's Des O'Connor or Max Bygraves. Where is the sex, drama and outrage in music anymore?
12I can't get away from 'True'. It's been played 3 million times on American radio.
13Spandau Ballet is a brand name. Part of me never wants to do it again. Part of me is fascinated of what it would be like. Because we spent the most amazing time together.
1Has only 1 kidney while his brother Martin has 3.
2Brother-in-law of Shirlie Kemp.
3Son Finlay Munro Kemp (born September 20th 1990) with Sadie Frost.
4Son Milo Wolf Kemp (born July 14th 2004) with Lauren Barber.
5Spandau Ballet won the Sony Award For Technical Excellence in 1984.
6"True" was directly influenced by his love of Marvin Gaye and Al Green. The lyrics were delicately influenced by Nabokov's novel, Lolita.
7The first single he bought was "Apeman" by The Kinks.
8The first band he saw was Slade when he was 11.
9The first album he bought was T. Rex's "Electric Warrior".
10His song "True" was sampled for the PM Dawn hit, "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss".
11Guitarist, songwriter and sometimes the synthesizer player of Spandau Ballet.
12Former co-leader of the band Spandau Ballet.
13Older brother of Martin Kemp.
