    Toto clearly was an influence on Gold. One of their biggest hits ‘Rio de Janvier’ resembles ‘Affrica’, especially the rhythm track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AowRoaeBazg

    In the late nineties Emile Wandelmer formed a strange project called ‘Emile & Images’. It was the amalgamation of another successful French band of the eighties named ‘Images’ with Emile Wandelmer. They played remixed medleys of the hits of both bands. It was commercialy very successful (not artistically).

    Another trivia. Lara Fabian participated to the Eurovision festival in 1988 with a song named ‘Croire’. (she was 18 years old) She ended 4th and the winner was another unknown singer named Céline Dion. ‘Croire’ was composed by the late Jacques Cardona who, without being a member, was one of the main composers of Gold.
