However, many thanks to the members of Ultravox... laugh

How many others are good enough and how many others have thought to seek approval? None through here, so none that I am aware of in either case.

A well done wouldn't have gone amiss there, Miss Reynolds...

Congratulations to all involved.

We may adopt a system where if anyone hits too many bum notes or howlers they may be denied officaildom for a set period of time.... laugh

At the moment we merely deny their claims of legitimacy.... wink

From the mp3s that were posted some time ago, you sound pretty authentic, so kudos for that. And you sounded like you did it very well.

Playing live is far more fun than bedroom twiddling (oo-er!), but it would drive me mad playing someone else's stuff note for note and sound for sound. However - if no-one else is doing it for Ultravox, then why shouldn't you? AND get some recognition for it?

Is there still a tribute band market? Maybe you could get an agent and get into that market?

Edinburgh is ok, I love Edinburgh. Don't bother with Milton Keynes... biglaugh Anywhere south of the border would be good... laugh Don't mind - as long as I have time beforehand to get there, have it wherever. laugh

That "so important meeting" that meant I couldn't come along this Friday? This afternoon it got postponed to next week... mad More than my life's worth to change me and Chantal's plans this weekend, otherwise I'd go and visit that nice Mr Easyjet...

At least Ari's pics should be worth seeing - hope you get a decent crowd in. smile

I don't think anyone's criticised Monument on here...at least that I've read. confused No doubt they will get more than a few metaphorical arrows in their direction from those who think Ultravox is "naff"...
