Various Music Events On May 10 May 10, 1960: A group from Liverpool named the Beatals (sic) changes its name to the Silver Beatles after local scenester Brian Casser declares the first name ridiculous. The five-piece -- which at this point includes Stu Sutcliffe on bass and Tommy Moore on drums) audition to become singer Billy Fury's backing group. Though they don't get the main gig, they do score a gig backing up fellow Liverpudlian Tommy Quickly on a Scottish tour. May 10, 1963: The Rolling Stones make their first recordings for Decca Records, including the Chuck Berry cover "Come On," but all are rejected by the label as "dreadful." May 10, 1964: Dusty Springfield makes her television debut on CBS' Ed Sullivan Show, singing "I Only Want To Be With You." May 10, 1965: Bob Dylan plays Royal Albert Hall as climax to his British tour (filmed for Don't Look Back) May 10, 1966: Bob Dylan plays Colston Hall in Bristol May 10, 1966: Struggling singer Janis Joplin, back home in her native Texas, is invited back ...
Music History For 10th May 1960, The Silver Beetles (John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Stuart Sutcliffe, and Tommy Moore) auditioned for promoter Larry Parnes and singer Billy Fury for a job as Fury's backing group. Parnes was also looking for backing groups for his lesser-known acts, and The Silver Beetles were selected as backing group for singer Johnny Gentle's upcoming tour of Scotland. The group had changed its name from 'The Beatals' to 'The Silver Beetles' after Brian Casser (of Cass and the Cassanovas) remarked that the name 'Beatals' was "ridiculous". He suggested they use the name 'Long John and the Silver Beetles', but John Lennon refused to be referred to as 'Long John'. 1963, The Rolling Stones recorded the Chuck Berry song 'Come On', at Olympic Studios, London. This the bands first release was issued on the 7th June 1963 by Decca Records. 1964, Bob Dylan arrived in Britain for his first major UK tour including a show at London's Royal Festival Hall on the 17th of this month. 1965 ...

Today would have been the Birthday of one of my Rock'n'Roll heroes, Billy Fury. He made so many fantastic records and as a singer, I would say his voice is instantly recognisable and unique. He may be more remembered these days by the media as a big ballad singer, but his early Rock'n'Roll records were outstanding. If I had a "Desert Island Discs" top 10 selection, his first record "Maybe Tomorrow"/"Gonna Type A Letter" would have to be included. The A-side is my all-time favorite ballad, utter perfection.
Fancy yourself a bit of Billy Fury, Billie Holiday or Elvis Presley? Then "Eternity" is perfect, get it for £2.00.

Another booking just secured for a 60th Birthday party at Stratford upon Avon in September this year. This was a venue we'd played at about 2 months ago. The club steward recommended us to the client who was struggling to find suitable entertainment. She was really lucky as this date in September was the one of the few Saturday dates we have left this year! What is really interesting about this booking is that they really do want a 60's night - so its over to mainly Eric this time for some Elvis, Buddy Holly, Del Shannon, Billy Fury, Roy Orbison, Drifters, and Cliff Richard!! Kelly ones include dolly Parton, Abba, Mary Wells, The Ronettes.
I was wondering how the late great Bobby Bland would have fared had his management been Larry Parnes, with his acts having snappy names like Billy Fury, Dickie Pride, Vince Eager and so on. Bobby Brilliant seems to be more marketable than Bobby Bland. Still, he did better than labelmates Tommy Tedium and Mickey Mediocre who vanished into obscurity. Rita Rubbish realised she'd do better under another name and became Nina Simone.
ON THIS DAY IN MUSIC JUNE 15th (Don't forget to "LIKE" AMERICANA MUSIC FOUNDATION to get your daily posts of daily history) 1956: John Lennon met Paul McCartney at a church dinner in Liverpool, England, and invited him to join his group the Quarrymen. 1957: Elvis Presley's new single, "All Shook Up," debuts on the UK charts before its release, due to advance copies of the single -- intended for US troops in Europe -- finding their way into the hands of British DJs. 1958: The Platters perform their new hit "Twilight Time" on tonight's broadcast of CBS-TV's Ed Sullivan Show. 1958: The first teenage all-music TV show Oh Boy!, was broadcast for the first time in the UK.

Adam Ant: Sound and Vision Chris Salewicz, Face, The, April 1981 "Malcolm McLaren just said to me, "What do you want, Adam?" I said, "I'd like to be a household name, and have everyone know and like Adam And The Ants." He said, "You're making it very difficult for yourself." And he was right!" "I think showbusiness is looked upon as a dirty word, and I don't think it is. Malcolm's a very Tin Pan Alley character – he reminds me of Billy Fury's manager, Larry Parnes. I really admire him: the guy's alive. I paid Malcolm a grand to work for me for four weeks. He sorted me out: he went through my first album word-by-word, note-by-note, and just said what was what. I think he realized early on there was no way I was going to sing about cassettes or sing his lyrics, which is what all the Bow Wow Wow words are. I did try, but I couldn't work under those conditions. But he was very wise – Malcolm's a very wise person – and he helped me a lot...Though it was very painful to lose friends like that. "Malcolm di ...

Evening All its Dean here from Gold Requests...So who was a better singer, Matt Monro or Billy Fury?
Idol was born in Stanmore, Middlesex, England. The name Billy Idol was inspired by a schoolteacher's description of Broad as "idle".[3] In an interview on November 21, 1983 Idol also tells us that the name "was a bit of a goof, but also part of the old English school of rock. Billy Fury and all that. It was a 'double thing' not just a poke at the superstar-like people. It was the whole sort of - everyone was doing it too - it was fun, you know?" He goes on to say the name "didn't really ever backfire, only with the stupid people who took it seriously" [4] In 1958, when Idol was two years old, his parents moved to Patchogue, on Long Island, New York, US. The family returned to the UK four years later with Idol and a younger child Jane (who had been born in the US), settling in Dorking, Surrey.[5] In 1971 the family moved to Bromley, southeastern London, where Idol attended Ravensbourne School for Boys. Idol (rather William Broad) also attended Worthing High School for Boys in West Sussex. In October 1975, ...

Matthew Charles Fisher (born 7 March 1946, Addiscombe, Croydon, England) is an English musician, songwriter and producer. He is best known for playing the Hammond organ on the 1967 single, "A Whiter Shade of Pale" by Procol Harum, for which he subsequently won a songwriting credit. Contents [hide] 1 Biography 1.1 Early career 1.2 Procol Harum 1.3 Production 1.4 Songwriting credits 2 References 3 External links [edit]Biography [edit]Early career Fisher was born and grew up in Addiscombe, a suburb of Croydon, then in Surrey. He started playing in bands in his teens, initially playing bass guitar, but around 1964, after hearing The Animals and Georgie Fame, he decided that he would prefer to be an organist instead. After briefly considering a career as a music teacher, enrolling in the Guildhall School of Music for a year, he dropped out, obtained two Vox Continental organs, and used them on tour with The Gamblers, backing band to Billy Fury. After The Gamblers, he played with various local groups before jo ...

We'll have a wintry start then 3 from Carl Perkins to mark the 25th anniversary of his passing today, loads of Billy Fury (cos I'm not on next week for HIS anniversary) birthday songs from Jack Scott and Etta James, and some belters from Warren Smith, Jerry, Janis, Buddy, Ritchie, and a 5 minuter from Duane. Local acts Jackson Sloan, Jack Rabbit Slim & The Strollers, plus I'll play out part of the chat I had with JD McPherson. And LOADS more! I'll have something to eat, play with Riles then mosey in and I'll see you "live & shiverin'" at 6. Bxx
If you're around tomorrow morning, Clem Cattini will be on the day job at about 11.40 to talk all things Billy Fury (he's in the forthcoming Billy Fury Years tour). He's one of the world's most proficient drummers - 45 Number 1s from Tom Jones to Ernie, artists as diverse as Lou Reed, Dusty, Weller and Bolan, but he started with Marty, Cliff, Terry, Billy et al. If you're around Northamptonshire try & catch it or go on line, and I'll post a link up here to the iplayer tomorrow. Very much looking forward to talking to the great man. Bxx
I take back what I said about BBC4 letting me down: just watched that great Jeff Lynne documentary. Terrific. His "Long Wave" album has some nice rnr roots: Running Scared, some Chuck and a Phil & Don song. Anyway, you know I love my music magazines: Vintage Rock ed. 5 is out now with good pieces on Billy Fury, PJ (Proby, not "& Duncan!), Joe Meek, Ronnie Self and The Ventures. £5.99 with Lennon on the cover this quarter. Mojo this month has articles on Etta James and Aaron Neville (the latter has a new doo *** cd out). And Q continues to not know its readership but has a nice interview with Richard Hawley where he talks about albums by Fats Domino,, Elvis, Duane, Little Walter and Santo & Johnny. Seek 'em out if you want some New Year reading. Bxx
