Seeing a photo of Rusty at the RTE II gig at Hammersmith has given me a thought...now that Billy and Midge have reconciled their differences, wouldn't it be great if they decided to play a few live Visage dates? Each time I see or hear Steve Strange these days he seems totally out of it but I'm sure that Midge could easily handle the vocals.

That would be great. Not sure Rusty would do it without Steve Strange but that could be mistaken. Midge said at a solo gig last year that Visage had reformed without him. Not sure what all that was about.

Just done a bit of research, Ian (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visage) and as far as I can see the only original member of Visage in the mark II version is Steve Strange. Now, I'm not saying I'd prefer Midge on vocals over him (he was the original vocalist after all), it's just whether he (Steve Strange) is up to the job "live wise" given his obvious excesses.

I think it would be a great idea. In fact one of the guys in the current line up lives around the corner from me. And if they want to play somewhere as a low key gig I have a 25th anniversary coming up.

In fact (again) I'm seeing Midge tomorrow night - I'll ask him!

;-)

Could he have been talking about "Pop Goes the Band" on Living TV? If I remember rightly when they used photos of Steve, Rusty and Midge they had cut out Midge and it was a blank space LMAO...
