Tears For Fears’ Roland Orzabal turns 62

Co-founder of the popular 1980’s Synth-Pop duo Tears For Fears, Roland Jaime Orzabal de la Quintana was born on August 22, 1961 in Portsmouth, England. He first met Curt Smith in the late 70’s forming a short lived band that would mutate into the Tears For Fears. During the 1980’s the duo had a string of hit singles and No.1 songs including “Shout”, “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” and “Mad World”. In 1989 they scored a minor hit with “Sowing The Seeds Of Love”, a Psychedelic Rock influenced tune, but shortly after they disbanded. Roland went on to follow a discreet solo career, and recently, Tears For Fears have reunited and are again touring. Aside of music, he’s also a writer and published his first novel “Sex, Drugs & Opera” in 2014. Today he turns 62.
