The very stylish Dave Vanian

Dave Vanian has been in the music world limelight since 1976.
Vanian is a bit of living subcultural fashion. Being one of the original goth lead singers to get a profile, he provided a leading influence on goth subcultural fashion. What he wore, really influenced what a lot of goths wore in the 1980's, and still wear to this day (especially the more traditional styled goths).

Anyways, some pics of Dave Vanian through the years, in his own inimitable style.

The original vampire esque look (late 1970's - early 80's).

The hair, the white streak. Classic Damned and classic Dave Vanian (mid 1980's, the era of teased hair!)

Lately (2005)

Dave Vanian, along with Siouxsie Sioux and Robert Smith, would probably be the triumvirate mainly responsible for influencing goth fashion, particularly in its early days.

Video of him singing Eloise.... so much white!

Mr Vanian, a toast to thee!
