The past 30 years have been kinder to some musicians than others.
In case you’ve managed to avoid the internet for most of today, you’ll probably already be aware that it’s Back To The Future Day – aka the day Doc Brown and Marty McFly travel forwards to in the Back To The Future film franchise.
What better day, then, to look Back To The Past, and catch up with some of the biggest music stars of 1985 – the year the iconic first film was released. From Depeche Mode to Kim Wilde via Dead Or Alive, the years have been kinder to some than others.
