Hello and welcome back... Sad and shocking news this morning about Visage front man "Steve Strange" who was found dead in a Egyptian hotel from a heart attack at age 55. He died in his sleep.

Steve was synonymous with the 'New Romantic' movement in the early 80s in London. The Blitz Nightclub was his favorite haunt along with Boy George, Rusty Egan, Marilyn and Midge Ure.

Steve was the face of Electronic 80s band 'Visage', His music led a cult of followers including Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet and Dead or Alive.

For me as a music writer and lover of 80s electronic music... I am devastated. Steve was one of the first to follow electronic80s1 on twitter and i felt honored to have Steve follow me. I chatted with him a few times and wish that i had met him in person.

Rest In Peace Steve.
