Ultravox star, Chris Cross who played the bass and co-wrote classic Vienna hit, has died age 71.

The musician – real name Chris Allen – died on March 25 but the sad news was only announced late last night.

Ultravox frontman Midge Ure paid tribute to his friend: ‘We worked together, we played together, made music and directed videos together. 

‘We were instant friends as well as Ultravox comrades. Even after years apart we managed to pick up where we left off like the years in between never existed. You were the glue that held the band together. 

‘You were the logic in the madness and the madness in our lives. It was great to know and grow with you. You are loved and missed old friend.’

This is a breaking story. More follows.
