I used to be one, kind of.
I remember really loving listening to Numan LP's as a teenager. I had a surprisingly large collection of his stuff. When I took that awful decision to donate my vinyl to my dad as I "went CD", I remember raising an eyebrow when I counted how many Numan records there were. But it was cool, my dad liked Numan too, so they weren't wasted.
And I still like Numan now. I like his "new stuff" as much as I like the "old stuff". And it really does bring a smile to my face watching him on stage now ... he finally seems to be enjoying himself.
It's kind of strange, for all the dystopian angst and "80's-ness" in his early music and the big gap in his career, he seems to have turned out OK, a lot less precious and pretentious than many of his peers.
Good on you, Gary. Here's hoping for many more years of good music.
