Happy Birthday Simon Le Bon

Simon John Charles Le Bon, lead singer of enduring pop/rock Brit band Duran Duran, turns 52 today. The only Grammy Awards the group has ever won were in 1984 for two short-form music videos. In 2004, the boys were bestowed an Outstanding Contribution To Music Brit Award.

In addition, they have never scored a chart-topping album in the States—though they achieved two No. 1 singles: "The Reflex" in 1984 (still my fave) and "A View To A Kill" in 1985.
