This is a long answer, but it is thorough.
Midge Ure began his professional music career
with Salvation, a Glasgow-based group that became the
bubblegum band Slik in 1974. Upset in the change of direction,
Ure left the band to join the Rich Kids, a punk-pop group led by
former Sex Pistol bassist Glen Matlock. The Rich Kids only
released one album, 1978's Ghosts of Princes in Towers, before
breaking up later that same year. Ure spent a brief time with the
Misfits (not the American hardcore band) before forming Visage
with drummer Rusty Egan and vocalist Steve Strange; he left the
group to replace Gary Moore in Thin Lizzy, who left in the middle
of an American tour. After the tour was finished, he fulfilled an
agreement to join Ultravox.
Hope it helps.
