Jim Kerr Documentary Appearance

Simple Minds will be interviewed for a documentary about the Brat Pack film director John Hughes. The acclaimed director, writer and producer of films such as 'Ferris Bueller’s Day Off' and 'Home Alone' died of a heart attack last week.

The documentary, 'Don’t You Forget About Me', is named after the Simple Minds song which appeared in Hughes' hit film, 'The Breakfast Club'. Simple Minds' American profile was helped immeasurably by the huge success of the film. The band promise to play 'Don’t You Forget About Me' on their Graffiti Soul tour in December, as a tribute to Hughes.

Director Matt Austin-Sadowski flew to Scotland to interview Kerr, as well as interviewed Brat Pack stars Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Mia Sara and Andrew McCarthy. The film follows Sadowski and producers Kari Hollend, Mike Facciolo and Lenny Panzer as they set off on a road trip to find Hughes.
