"A nation that draws too broad a difference between its scholars and its warriors will
have its thinking done by cowards, and its fighting done by fools." Thucydides
Song for the Tribes
From Punk, to New Wave, to Pop, and to Anthem, Arena, and Stadium Rock, Simple Minds' journey through music history is characterized by an ethereal and atmospheric virtue that has never been matched by any other band. Its Celtic-influenced and spiritual rock paeans have touched countless musicians across genres. Despite the peaks and valleys of their trajectory, their history has always been an enigmatic one, nebulously centered around vocalist Jim Kerr and guitarist Charlie Burchill. The space between their individual narratives is the essence of the band's fullest story - the space they filled with equally talented musicians and creative minds. Their aggregate journey is the prize.
