Frankie doesn't go To "Holly"wood

Hot on the heels of their appearance on VH1's Bands Reunited, ZTT Records and Trevor Horn's early-80s cash cow Frankie Goes To Hollywood have announced plans to reform for "one night only" to play at a charity gig to honour said man, Trevor Horn.

The news is marred slightly by lead vocalist William "Holly" Johnson who is refusing to play nice. It was arguments between Johnson and ZTT in the mid 80s that sounded the death knell for the Frankies and it looks like, in this case, time has yet to heal old wounds.

The other Frankies are frantically searching for a new singer to fill the old curmudgeon's shoes for the event... If only the band had had two singers back in the day.

The night will also feature other acts that have been helped or produced by the man Horn over the years, including Seal and Pet Shop Boys.

No word yet on whether those owners of lonely hearts Yes will appear, but in the case of Holly Johnson, it looks like a deffo No.
