HUMAN LEAGUE: JOANNE CATHERALL WURDE 60
- Sep 27, 2022
Joanne Catherall was one of the two vocalists in the Synth-Pop band Human League from 1980 onwards, which was influential in this genre and one of the most important representatives in the eighties. Catherall and her friend Susan Ann Sulley were initially only recruited as background singers and dancers for a tour, but during the shows they already took on their first solo vocal parts. Band leader Philip Oakey hired the duo permanently after that and commercial success began. The album DARE reached the top position in the British charts after the release of the number one single "Don't You Want Me" (UK and USA). The group went through several phases of popularity and still exists today. Joanne Catherall, who turns 60 on September 18, is still with the group.
