Inspiration for DYBIS

Ask Katy

At the beginning of "Do you Believe in Shame" it shows a picture of Nick and someone, who is this? Is he the inspiration to the song? I had heard that the song was about Andy Warhol, or maybe this man who died in a car wreck. Thank you so much, Rhonda

“Simon wrote the lyric for the song about his friend Dave Miles, who tragically died of a drug overdose. The song was dedicated to him and the photograph Nick is holding is an image of Dave. The video’s director, Chen Kaige, wanted to capture the essence of the song and reflect the fragility expressed in the lyric. Katy”
