Personal information

Born on: 08.03.1958

Gary Numan (born Gary Webb on 8 March 1958) is an English singer, composer, and musician, most widely known for his chart-topping 1979 hits "Are 'Friends' Electric?" (with Tubeway Army) and "Cars". His signature sound consisted of heavy synthesizer hooks fed through guitar effects pedals.
Commercially unsuccessful for many years of his career, Numan is nevertheless considered a pioneer of commercial electronic music.His use of themes from science fiction, and his combination of aggressive punk energy with electronics, have since been widely imitated.
