In a Hardtalk Extra programme broadcast on Friday 29th June, Gavin Esler talks to eighties' music legend Marc Almond, one half of the group Soft Cell.
Marc Almond's first major hit was a cover of "Tainted Love"
In the first long-form television interview of his comeback, eighties' music legend Marc Almond talks to Gavin Esler for Hardtalk Extra.
In a wide-ranging and highly personal interview, the star, who turns fifty this year, talks candidly about the highs and lows of a career that now spans three decades.
He tells Gavin Esler about his battle with drugs, which saw him spend over a quarter of a million pounds on ecstasy alone.
And he talks about the motorcycle crash two year ago that almost claimed his life, and his ability to sing.
