Celeb interviews of 2011: Steve Perry to Simon Le Bon



simon.jpgEvery year, Stuck in the '80s cranks out about a dozen interviews with musicians, actors and celebrities from our favorite decade. And while we may have fallen short on numbers in 2011, the quality of those chats was hard to beat.

Here are all our interviews from 2011, ranked roughly top to bottom (with no offense intended toward those near the bottom -- it was a great year top to bottom).
