He was in Rich Kids with Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock, was a founding member of synthpop band Visage, spent a short time playing guitar in Thin Lizzy, co-wrote Band Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas," and, as Ultravox's second vocalist, sang lead on "Vienna," one of the weirder hit singles in UK Chart history (four weeks at #2 in 1980).
