    More Details Hide Details Intended as the first single from Shakespears Sister's third album, and her first record since her split with Marcella Detroit, the single performed disappointingly (UK number 30) which prompted London Records not to release the album.

  • 1993
    Age 34

  • TWENTIES
  • 1988
    Age 29
    In 1988, frustrated with the direction she felt Bananarama were heading, Fahey left the group and formed Shakespears Sister.
    More Details Hide Details Initially, Fahey effectively was Shakespears Sister, though American singer/songwriter Marcella Detroit later became an official member making the outfit a duo. The band was nominated for numerous awards and showed a darker, more sophisticated side to Fahey, who often appeared in the band's music videos and on-stage as a vampish glam figure.
  • 1987
    Age 28
    Fahey married Dave Stewart of Eurythmics in 1987 but divorced in 1996.
    More Details Hide Details The couple have two sons, Sam (born 1987) and Django James (born 1991). The two brothers formed a musical band called Nightmare & The Cat. As an infant, Sam Stewart appeared in early Shakespears Sister videos for "Heroine" and "You're History". Django Stewart is also an actor. Prior to her marriage to Stewart, Fahey was romantically involved with Jim Reilly, the drummer for the Northern Irish punk rock band Stiff Little Fingers and Scottish singer Bobby Bluebell of The Bluebells, with whom she co-wrote the UK No. 1 "Young at Heart". a Since their inclusion on Songs from the Red Room, an album by Fahey's solo project Shakespears Sister, these songs are now usually credited as 'Shakespears Sister' rather than 'Siobhán Fahey'.
