Early life of Gary Numan
Born in Hammersmith, Gary Anthony James Webb was the son
of a British Airways bus driver based at Heathrow Airport.
Webb was educated at Town Farm Junior School Stanwell,
Ashford County Grammar School, Middlesex, Slough Grammar
School and Brooklands Technical College. He had an early
ambition to be an airline pilot, but did not gain any
academic qualifications; however, he did go on to join the
Air Training Corps as a teenager. He then briefly did
various jobs including fork lift truck driver, air
conditioning ventilator fitter and clerk in an accounts
department. A guitar was purchased for him at an early age
and he began writing songs when he was about 15 years old.
He played in various bands, including Mean Street and The
Lasers, before forming Tubeway Army with his uncle, Jess
Lidyard, and Paul Gardiner. His initial pseudonym was
"Valerian", probably in reference to the hero in
French science fiction comic series Valérian and
Laureline. Later he picked the name "Numan" from
an advert in the "Yellow Pages" for a plumber
