Archive: Toyah interviews Steve Strange

Steve Strange, lead singer of 1980s pop band Visage, has died aged 55 following a heart attack, his record label says.

The Welsh New Romantic icon - best known for the hit Fade To Grey - died in hospital in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

Ex-Visage bandmates Midge Ure and Rusty Egan said they were "devastated" to hear of his "untimely passing", adding: "Steve was a major face of the 80s."

In this archive footage from 1980, Toyah Wilcox interviewed Strange, from Newbridge, Caerphilly, about his band and clubs.
