Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[in 2016] The industry doesn't exist to support that type of band, things that aren't straightforward, chart-topping stuff. Our industry was built on the interesting oddities and those interesting oddities aren't being signed. See more »

Trivia:

He never topped the UK singles chart with Ultravox, but his solo single "If I Was" became a number one in 1985. It featured the renowned bass player Mark King. See more »
