Paul Gardiner

He fortified the synthesizer motifs -and forged a few of his own - which continue to inspire generations of electronic pop artists by way of his tenure in Tubeway Army and Gary Numan.

A bassist, composer, and keyboardist, the late Paul Gardiner also recorded a few minor hit singles under his own name in his native UK, and also guested on Robert Palmer’s groundbreaking Clues collection in 1980.
