In some respects its refreshing to read honest opinions from someone in the band (just as we've had with Warren over the years). It makes a change from the sanitised versions the public generally here when bands are no longer together.

Ironic that Geldof could accuse Ultravox of being washed up when Boomtown Rats were well past their sell by date and had been for years at that point. icky

2 things are certain:-

Midge did get his high profile from being in Ultravox, and

Ultravox left a great legacy of music and musicianship that all members of the band should be proud of.
