Cool Chris Cross RIP

ltravox bass guitarist Chris Cross, who co-wrote the new wave band’s classic Vienna, has died aged 71.
The musician, real name is Chris Allen, died on 25 March, and the news of his death was announced last night.
Midge Ure, Ultravox’s frontman, led tributes to his “instant” friend on Facebook, posting an old picture of the two skiing.
“We worked together, we played together, made music and directed videos together,” he wrote.
“We were instant friends as well as Ultravox comrades. Even after years apart we managed to pick up where we left off like the years in between never existed.
“You were the glue that held the band together. You were the logic in the madness and the madness in our lives. It was great to know and grow with you. You are loved and missed old friend.”
Keyboardist Billy Currie told his followers: “Hi people. So sorry to hear about Chris. Very shocked. We had some amazing times together. Laughing mostly.”

That was a different musician Mick; Christopher Cross (American) who is still living.
