Gary Numan Live at the Fillmore

Electronic Music Icon Returns To San Francisco
By Efren Martinez

On November 19th we headed back to The Fillmore to witness the talents Gary Newman. Gary is no stranger to those in the professional music industry. His music has affected such artists as Nine Inch Nails, Janet Jackson and the list goes on and on. His other influences have been proclaimed by artists ranging from Kanye West and Prince to Foo Fighters. Hip-hop producers continually sample his pioneering electronic experiments flattered to be hailed as the originator of “industrial” music by many.

Gary Numan was born in 1958 and released his first record in 1978 as part of the outfit Tubeway Army. Initially unsuccessful, the band scored a huge hit in 1979 with the single “Are Friends Electric” and “Cars.” Numan achieved his peak of mainstream popularity in the late 1970s and early 1980s with their second album Replicas. Both LP’s reached number one in the UK. For my wife and I, we really enjoyed the special moment he had with his teenage daughter on stage performing the song “My Name Is Ruin” who you can see featured in his official video.
