Gary Numan is an English songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He was signed to Beggars Banquet in 1979 and released the album Replicas (which went to number one in the UK) in the same year with the band Tubeway Army. Replicas, The Pleasure Principle, Telekon, Dance and I, Assassin were all released between 1979 and 1981 and they are heralded as genre-defying new wave albums. Unfortunately, due to large debts and a desire to reconquer the charts, Numan ended up recording a series of below-par albums during the best part of the eighties and early nineties. It was not until he released the album Sacrifice in 1994 that he began to show again his lyrical prowess and capacity to innovate. The following albums, Exile, Pure, Hybrid and Jagged, as well as a newfound following among artists such as The Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson have greatly improved Numan's reputation, and given him a cult fan following throughout the UK.
The more I disregard the signs
The more I glide.
The more I walk across the lines
The more I fly.

A promoter's fear of not selling any pre-sale tickets for a fucking legendary artist! Goddamnit!

In reference to Gary Numan's gig in Geneva (Switzerland)on May 16th, 2006, when not a single pre-sale ticket had been purchased (though an intimate crowd of people got their tickets at the box office on the night of the concert).
- Hey mate, I've just booked this great artist to perform at a really neat venue, but I fear that no one's going to buy a ticket because everyone's a fucking ignorant!
- Dude, you've got the Gary Numan syndrome.
- Fuck!
