Thanks for the information. I loved Magazine.

Thanks confarga! wink

It's always nice that someone remembers the Forgotten Man of Ultravox. He truly is a great guitarist and did brilliantly in replacing the late but also great guitarist John McGeoch.

I truly like the Play CD by Magazine (recorded live at Melbourne on 6th September 1980). Robin has his unique style and he gave that to Magazine, as can be heard on Play. He does come through very well on A Song from under the Floorboards and does John McGeoch proud. I wonder why he didn't continue to record an album with Magazine. Perhaps Howard Devoto asked too much from him. :rolleyes:

There has been a lot of talk on The Forum about an Ultravox reunion and if this ever happens Robin should be a part of it. He's got a lot more to offer to the band. Remember Slow Motion originated from him. wink

Yes, one would love to see another release involving Robin and this DVD should be the perfect opportunity to witness one of the rare appearances of this talent.

BTW Billy Currie mentioned in an e-mail that he was working on the Humania live tapes with a possible CD release on his Puzzle label.

Wow!

I like "Play" a lot and for my opinion was Robin Simon the best option to replace the fantastic talented Guitarist John McGeoch!

Ben Mandelson was okay but had not the class like John or Robin!

Shame I never saw them live!!

But the DVD comes soon.... smile

Can you please email me the story? laugh

My lips are sealed.

Aren't I curious? So many years listening to Ultravox and Magazine. :rolleyes: I've got to know. You know the feeling. wink

I don't know the story behind Robin's departure from Magazine...but am quite prepared to make one up for a fantastic sum of money.

Any takers?
