Richard Coles


Sometime session musician (keyboards and woodwind) who was hired to play on tour with Bronski Beat and ended up forming a breakaway duo, the Communards, with Jimmy Somerville. A couple of years of international success followed (their Hi-NRG cover of "Don't Leave Me This Way" was the UK's top-selling single of 1986) before they split up, after which Coles pursued parallel, and subsequently entwined, careers as a broadcaster and Church of England vicar.
