Goff,

We have a son who lives in Liverpool so may fit that in with one of our visits over to see Andrew. Talking about Kim Wilde, we always play Mel & Kim singing Rockin Around The Christmas Tree at Christmas time, that always gets the women up to dance :lol: :lol: :lol:

Didn't Marty Wilde marry one of The Vernon Girls? Joyce?

Marty Wilde and Billy Fury (among others) were from the same (Larry Parnes?) stable weren't they hence the similar stage names. It was thought in those days that you had to have a suitable, strong stage name in order to get anywhere - hence Tommy Steele and Cliff Richard and many others of that period also changing names.

Larry Parnes was the Simon Cowell of the late 50s-early 60s. He supposedly named his boys to reflect what he considered to be their sexual characteristics. Among those he managed were Billy Fury, Vince Eager, Dickie Pride, Lance Fortune, Duffy Power, Johnny Gentle, Terry Dene, Nelson Keene, Georgie Fame, Tommy Bruce and Joe Brown.


Here's another couple of my favourite old tunes from that era
