Biography

Paul Reynolds (born 4 August 1962, Liverpool) was a lead guitarist and singer for the Liverpudlian band, A Flock of Seagulls. He is commonly known for his large white glasses and serious-mannered appearance.

Reynolds joined A Flock of Seagulls (“AFOS”) at the age of seventeen. As a friend of former drummer Mark Edmondson, Paul was invited to audition for AFOS by Frank Maudsley when Willie Woo left the band with no notice and gigs pending. AFOS’s popularity soared with the release of the single “(It’s Not Me) Talking” in the UK. An album followed, as did a Grammy Award, two more hit singles and a worldwide tour by the time he was aged twenty.

When AFOS was reformed in 1989 by singer Mike Score, Reynolds and the remaining members decided not to rejoin. Reynolds and his fellow ex-members did, however, reunite with Score for a one-off performance in London in 2004 for VH1’s Bands Reunited. The band performed their hit ‘I Ran’, and the performance sold out. Before the performance, Reynolds was interviewed on his reason for leaving the band; he claimed that he was too young for the “rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle” - he was under too much pressure.
