Ah, you're THERE! - Finally arrived, eh? - Been looking for some recollections on someone's career, I take it?...Some biographical data, you say? - Hmmmh, Midge Ure?....well, there have been many...things biographical I mean...little pieces written in tiny or less midgetly articles in magazines or on the web (as can be found on this site)...official and less official...mentioned on the radio or TV stations...or on video...

As previously announced on this site), Midge is currently writing his autobiography due for release in September 2004 through Virgin Books...

Answers...a musical biography...first released on video in 1989...great to watch...time span covered: 1976-1989...bands: Slik, Rich Kids, Thin Lizzy, Visage, Ultravox, Band Aid...plus early stages of Midge's solo-career (until 1989 that is)...update requested...(or click here to find out more . coming in with rare cds, records, videos etc)...includes great interviews with Midge Ure, Bob Geldof, Kenny Hyslop (former Slik & Simple Minds-drummer), Phil Collins, Chris Cross and many many more...very enjoyable!
