80’s Music Rules ~ Criminally Underrated Artists/Bands ~ Gary Numan’s KCRW Performances

This past Fall, synth icon Gary Numan took the US and Canada by storm with his critically acclaimed Pleasure Principle tour. Celebrating the 30-year anniversary of the release of this superb LP, Numan decided to give his North American fans a chance to experience his perfectly-honed live shows by launching an aggressive trek from coast to coast. He had already stolen my heart, but meeting him October 17, 2010 only confirmed my beliefs; not only is he a gifted, cutting-edge musician, he is a sweet and humble man, as well.

While touring in California, Numan and his band (Ade Fenton – keyboards, David Brooks – keyboards, Richard Beasley – drums, Steve Harris – guitar,  and Tim Muddiman –  bass) performed at the KCRW studios. YouTube user leeleec79 has posted several videos which I have linked below. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
