The return of iconic 80s singer Paul Young with the 35 years No Parlez tour

Everyone’s favourite 80’s crooner Paul Young is back on tour, performing his much loved album No Parlez in celebration of 35 years since it’s release and I went to talk to him in the heart of London. This is the second time I have interviewed Paul Young in one year and I have to admit I admire him more at every new conversation I have with him. Watch my interview in which we talk about the 35 years No Parlez tour, a revival of his music career, the 80s and, of course, Paul’s new passion, cooking. Don’t miss it! It’s a really lovely chat and you will fall in love with him. 

‘No Parlez’ was Paul’s debut album. It reached number 1 in the UK charts in 1983 for 5 weeks and fast became triple Platinum.

The album produced Paul’s first UK number 1 single – The Marvin Gaye cover of ‘Wherever I Lay My Hat’ and hits ‘Come Back & Stay’ & ‘Love of The Common People’. The album also features a cover of Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’.

Originally in early 80’s band Q-Tips, Paul Young went solo in the 80’s and his career took off with ‘No Parlez’and further top 10 hits such as ‘Everytime You Go Away’& ‘Everything Must Change’. He is also a Brit Award winner for Best Male vocalist, sings the opening lines on the original Band Aid Single ‘Feed The World’ and performed at Live Aid in 1984.

Paul is a keen chef, biker and fan of all things Mexicana! A family man, always happy to be touring  his classic hits as a solo artist or with his  Tex Mex/ Americana band ‘Los Pacaminos’.
