R.I.P. Steve Strange

'80's British icon, born in Welsh sadly passed away today. He was a true original who created a new look and sound during the early part of that decade.  Strange formed the band Visage,  he also appeared in Bowie's video "Ashes to Ashes" while he was the host with the most at the seminal and famous London nightclub " The Blitz" where he originated the New Romantics movement which became the backbone of the British new wave "invasion" that took over pop music during the most part of the '80s inspiring several of the big names in music of that amazing time in music where art, fashion and music melded with such beauty and purity.   Here is a sample of his brilliance that pretty much became my soundtrack   of self discovery while growing up in south Louisiana.  You will be missed and your legacy will live on forever, thank you Mr. Strange. RIP
