For the first 10 years of his life he lived in a one-bedroom tenement flat on the outskirts of Glasgow with his brother, sister and parents.

Ure joined Salvation as a guitarist in Jim McGinlay born James McGinlay decided to turn Ure's name backwards to "Mij" Midge to avoid any confusion caused by two members of the band having the same first name. In April , Kevin McGinlay left to pursue a solo career, so Ure assumed vocals in addition to his guitar duties. In Ure turned down an offer to be the lead singer of the Sex Pistols , stating that he felt at the time that Malcolm McLaren had "his priorities completely wrong!

Slik terminated their contract with Martin and Coulter, believing that their boy-band image was hindering their chances of success during the rising punk rock scene.

They changed their name to PVC2 and adopted a more punkish style. Ure's only release with the band under this name was the single " Put You in the Picture ". He moved to London and soon found himself immersed in a scene he had previously only read about in the pages of the NME. Having acquired a Yamaha CS50 synthesiser, Ure — alongside bandmate Rusty Egan — wanted to integrate the new instrument into the band's sound. With Glen Matlock and Steve New preferring to remain with the traditional guitars and drums approach, the band split.


In January , Rich Kids reformed, for one night only, for a benefit concert for Steve New who was fighting terminal cancer and died on 24 May Ure also played an acoustic set of Ultravox and Visage songs.

Egan and Ure also formed the short-lived band The Misfits , whose career was curtailed by an approach from Thin Lizzy. Though Visage's first single was unsuccessful, they signed with Polydor Records in ; their second single, " Fade to Grey ", became a hit. Thin Lizzy then toured America and Japan.

In , during the second part of this tour, Ure switched to keyboards, and was replaced by Dave Flett and then Snowy White as guitarist. At the end of the tour Ure left Thin Lizzy and returned to his primary interest at that time, Ultravox. Ure continued to collaborate with Lynott, co-writing Lynott's biggest solo hit, " Yellow Pearl ". Ultravox had been presumed defunct since guitarist Robin Simon quit and lead singer John Foxx had left to pursue a solo career.

In April Ure regrouped the band and assumed duties as singer, songwriter, guitarist and second keyboardist. This second incarnation would become the classic line-up, with Currie keyboards, violin , Chris Cross bass and Warren Cann electronic drums. During this time the band wrote a number of songs which were included on their first album with Ure. The album, Vienna , was recorded in Although it was the band's fourth album, it was the first with Ure, and the first one to chart, although it was only a minor success on first release.

However, when the title track " Vienna " was released as a single in early it became a huge hit and spent four weeks at no. The album itself re-entered the album chart and peaked at no. Inspired by the film The Third Man , the promo video for "Vienna" was directed by Russell Mulcahy utilising cinematic techniques, and became quite influential. In an interview Ure recalled the way that "music video changed after that. Ultravox, Visage and Thin Lizzy. After its release Ure and Currie reconvened with Visage to record the band's second album, The Anvil.

Released in early , it was a Top 10 hit; but Ure left the band soon after its release, citing creative differences with frontman Steve Strange. The same year saw Ultravox record and release their third album with Ure, Quartet , with production by Beatles producer George Martin. The album became their third Top 10 hit and featured four Top 20 singles. This period saw Ure work as a producer for other artists, amongst them Steve Harley , Skids and Strasse , and in he released his first solo single, a cover of the Tom Rush song " No Regrets " based on the hit cover version by The Walker Brothers , which made the UK Top After the live album Monument in Ultravox released their fourth studio album with Ure, Lament , in The band released their first "greatest hits" album at the end of the year, featuring all the singles from onwards.

The album peaked at no. Although another Top 10 hit, the album and singles fared less well than their earlier releases. He stated in a Extreme Voice Fanzine We had a long break from each other and when we came back together we were all working in different directions" . In April , Ure and the other members Cann, Currie and Cross reformed Ultravox for the Return to Eden tour to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Vienna album, and in their own words, the "anniversary of their classic line-up".

Ure stated in a BBC interview in April , "we are not trying to get our youth back, nor the hair that's fallen off already". In late , Ultravox started working on their sixth album fronted by Ure. This album, titled Brilliant , was released in May In November , Ultravox were special guests on a four-date arena tour with Simple Minds.

Ure was rehearsing with Ultravox for an episode of the Channel 4 music show " The Tube " when host Paula Yates handed him the phone. Geldof provided the initial lyrics, with Ure working the musical theme on a small keyboard in his kitchen.

The second half was composed by Ure, with the bridging chorus only assembled in the studio when the artists had gathered. Ure has described the song as not one of the best he has ever written, commenting that "the momentum the artists gave it in the recording studio is what made it".

Although Trevor Horn had been approached to undertake this role, he needed more time to fulfil other obligations than was available.

Geldof and Ure have been honoured with two Ivor Novello awards for writing the song. Ure himself lost a house that was destroyed in Montserrat. Ure recruited Mick Ronson to play guitar on his upcoming solo tour. They rehearsed, but musical differences put an end to it and Zal Cleminson took over in the five-piece band, alongside Craig Armstrong on keyboards and Kenny Hyslop on drums.

After returning to Ultravox for what would be their final album together, the band effectively disbanded in and Ure concentrated solely on his solo career but with less commercial success. The second album Answers to Nothing failed to make the UK top It featured a duet with Kate Bush called "Sister and Brother", and the single "Dear God", which helped Ure gain his first foothold with American audiences .

If I Was, a career retrospective, was released in , and was followed by extensive touring on his acoustic 'Out Alone' tour of Britain. His fourth solo album Breathe was produced by Richard Feldman and recorded mostly in Los Angeles. This album had a very Celtic feel with a plethora of acoustic instruments from Uilleann pipes to mandolins and accordions.

In the single " Breathe " became a hit-single, in several European countries boosted by its use in a Swatch TV ad campaign, two years after its original release. It entered at No. The album was recorded in a log cabin in Eastern Canada, near Montreal, during the long snow bound winter of — Ure visited the US in for a tour and did a number of concerts. It features orchestrated re-recordings of Ultravox and solo career songs arranged by the composer Ty Unwin, and a new track called "Ordinary Man".

He has been married twice: He was able to indulge the second of these in the Celebrity MasterChef series, winning his heat and progressing to the final on 15 June, alongside Nadia Sawalha and Craig Revel Horwood.

Although all three competitors greatly impressed the judges, the trophy was won by Sawalha.
