As an old (in both senses of the word)fan of Simply Red I am very sad that Mick & Co. wouldn't continue... What makes me even sadder that they have chosen my birthday for their farewell concert. Unfortunately i passed their concert in July last year in Budapest - and no hope if i could ever come to London. But what i have - the Very Best of SR - Please, say i love them... Erzsébet
