I Maneuver Sideways, You Maneuver Sideways

It's a shame Gary Numan was a one hit wonder here in the States, because he was infinitely more interesting and talented than so, so much of the slag that was in the Top 40 in the late 70's and early '80's. I mean, "Cars" is a great song, but it's probably not even one of Mr. Numan's five best songs.

Being "ahead of the times" might seem like a cool thing, but really, most of the time being in the vanguard doesn't really lead to anything substantial...

Then one must wait 25-30 years to become appreciated again.

Of course, Gary Numan did much better in Europe, so...

Hotcha! Hank
