In the early days of the 1980's and MTV (back when MTV used to run those things called... music videos, I believe they were called) he was at the top of the heap. Well, for a little while, anyway. With massive hits like White Wedding, Dancing With Myself and Eyes Without A Face you couldn't avoid him in those days. (I did see him during his Whiplash Smile tour when The Cult opened for him, great show!)
