Steve Strange died at age 55

Too young to die, rigth?

Pioneers aware of New Romanticism, Steve Strange died Thursday of a heart attack in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

Steven John Harrington (his real name) born in 1959 in south-east Wales, was interested in music after attending a Sex Pistols gig in 1976.

At the age of 15 years, Strange had worked for the famous punk band manager Malcolm McClaren.

He then opened the Blitz club in Soho, one of the most vibrant areas of London, and later, in the early 1980s, the place to be for New Romanticism band.

Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Boy George and Culture Club made their debuton his stage.

Formed in 1979, Visage recorded two successful albums and the worldwide hit Fade To Grey, released in 1980.

Addicted to heroin for years from 1985, Steve Strange had subsequently experienced health problems and money.

In 2013, Visage had released a new album and recorded a classic version of Fade To Grey, last year. It was on this occasion thatwe meet in England and we did a photoshoot...wich this image is from.

RIP. Steve
