Chris Cross

As the anchor for synth-punk/pop pioneers Ultravox, bassist Chris Cross, who also doubles on keys and synth-bass, keeps it linear and mostly on the root notes as not to clash with the layers of countermelodies which define the band in all their remarkable incarnations – that is, with John Foxx, and later, Midge Ure.

Cross, who also sings and writes with Ultravox, utilizes a wide array of instruments including a Fretless Fender P, Steinberger, Ibenez, and Rickenbacker – often colored with various effects.
