Martin Fry
'The beauty of pop music is its unpredictability' says
Martin Fry , lead singer of pop group ABC. Both he and his partner Mark White , have tasted the unpredictability of the industry - and have lived to tell the tale.
From his student days as a 'suedehead' obsessed with style in Sheffield, Fry realised he could be a member of a group after seeing a Sex Pistols concert. By 1982, their gold lame suits and general flashiness had taken them to the top of the album charts with Lexicon of Love, preceded by three Top Ten hits.
Martin Fry pours his heart out about Sheffield, having hit singles, the group's transformation into cartoon characters in How to Be a Millionaire, and his long-term illness - all this and ABC's hit videos too!

Clive Sinclair : the Anatomy of an Inventor In his 30-year career as an innovator and entrepreneur, Clive Sinclair has dazzled the public with a stream of new electronic inventions. His was the first pocket calculator, the first digital watch and the first low-cost home computer. He's had huge successes and catastrophic disasters, like the C5 electric car, which was widely criticised for being unsafe. He is now redesigning the bicycle, has a personal telephone about to come out, and is involved in satellite television. What is the secret of his mental fertility? And why does he find it difficult to hold on to success?
