Visage frontman and new romantic pioneer Steve Strange died from a heart attack in Egypt at age 55.

Strange, one of those at the forefront of the New Romantic movement, rose to fame with Visage, who were best known for their smash hit Fade to Grey, which peaked at No 8 in the UK charts in 1980. It topped the charts in Germany and Switzerland.

Strange also managed the Blitz club in Soho, central London, which became the pulse of the New Romantic movement. The likes of Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet and Boy George’s Culture Club all got their start there before enjoying international success.

May he rest in peace.

Sad to see him go... I was looking forward to another 'new' Visage album.

Best regards,
