Billy

I couldnīt sleep last night. Iīve rushed to the nearest cybercafe to express here my apologies. I didnīt mean to call you a student of Professor Foxx or create a rift between you and John.

You see, you can become addicted to Johnīs (The Quiet Man)way of being. This is what happens in the Music World in that the frontman/lead singer sadly gets all the spotlights...John, Midge, Gary etc. The backing band is very important but Ultravox was more than that. Each member was equally important (well except when it was Johnīs band). I consider here Ultravox being 4 into 1. This is how you wanted it to be and how it was and I love your modesty here. Moreover, we all know that there wouldnīt have been a Vienna or even a Fade to Grey without you.

Not only that, the producer is always completely forgotten. This is a shame as (Professor in Sound) Conrad Plank (who I was meant to say) was fantastic in working with you guys on Systems of Romance and Vienna. This is where it all began!

One cannot say who is really the better musician in Ultravox. That was what was so special about Ultravox and thatīs why this website exists. Ultravoxīs legacy of songs will never fade away.

I look forward to your album.

Thanks Billy

I was wondering the same thing (sort of); I just wasn't sure if I should say anything... But yeah, what is this about? bemused

I'll third that! (I was wondering the same thing as well)

"..and the hole got deeper...and deeper...and deeper...."

Chris: please calm down, chap. It's difficult to tell if you are either having a laugh or a marginally psychotic episode.

If you like Billy's album: fine.

If you don't: (although Billy may have a diferent view on it) that's also fine.

But you're definitely on a very bizarre path at the moment.

Take a deep breath, count slowly to ten, and then re-read your posts.

Any bells ringing, yet?

I think Chris was just referring to comments he had made on another thread as regards Billy and John.

Thanks Ash,

Billy is OK. I'm receiving his replies to my e-mails as normal. Such a gentleman.

Hi Forum,

Don't worry guys. I'm Ok!

I called Billy a student of Professor Foxx by mistake. :rolleyes: banghead It should have read both Billy and John had been students of Professor Plank. The mastermind of sound in those days. laugh

We all know that Billy is one of the Greatest Keyboard/Synth players of all time and is second to none!

The song Vienna is a testament to this.

Cheers Billy

Chris C wink
PS OK John you are second to none too! laugh
