Simon John Charles Le Bon (born October 27, 1958) is the lead singer and lyricist of the pop band Duran Duran. He was born in Bushey, Hertfordshire, England.
He joined Duran Duran in 1980 after his ex-girlfriend Fiona Kemp (a bar maid at the Rum Runner club where Duran got their start) introduced him to the band. The band's first album, Duran Duran, was released in 1981, and they quickly shot to fame as part of the New Romantic movement. Three more albums followed in quick succession: Rio (1982), Seven and the Ragged Tiger (1983) and Arena (1984). He appeared as one of the vocalists on the 1984 Band Aid charity single, Do They Know It's Christmas.
