In this episode Gearoid travels to Henley on Thames to pay a visit T’pau singer and 80s rock queen Carol Decker. We take a nostalgic look back at her glory days and chat about everything from fridges to “The Killing”.
In the 80s Carol Decker and her former partner Ronnie Rogers shared a damp flat in which they wrote songs chasing their dream of superstardom which remained elusive for six years. They endured the heartache of publishing deals falling through but always believed in their songs.
When success came it was worth the wait and their band T’Pau (named after a Star Trek character became huge all over the world) with hits like “Heart and Soul”, “China in your Hand” and “Valentine”.
When it all ended Carol mourned her fame for a long time until she met a new manager, a new man and embraced her past. She is now the mother of two teenagers and has forged a solo career. She reunited with Ronnie for a 25th anniversary T’pau tour and they made another critically acclaimed T’pau album.
Carol tours regularly and has released her autobiography “Heart & Soul”.
