Happy Birthday, Andy Bell!

Andrew Ivan Bell was working in a meat-packing plant when he responded to an advert for singers and met Vince Clarke. The story goes that his performance of “Who Needs Love Like That?” was so amazing, everyone else was sent home and the song later became the first single from Erasure.

Bell’s flamboyant stage personality make Erasure a concert hall sensation and an icon in the gay community.  You haven’t seen a show or over-the-top costume design until you’ve seen Erasure perform live. Andy’s got a bit of a potty mouth, too, which we love.

Andy Bell turns 43 today.
