Why the "singer????" after Billy Fury, maurice? Maybe you're to young to remember him? Nuala Barry & I went to see him in the Town Hall, it was packed
to the rafters & we could hardly hear him for the screaming of his adoring fans (us included!)
We all hoped for autographs after the show, but he was whisked away like lightning from the back of the hall :[

Remember getting a wee kiss of Samantha Fox :thumbs: that night after my Dad taking us down out of our beds to see her.
Also remember my mum making food for The Undertones who came to our house for something to eat after a gig in the Osbourne when my dad was working there.

Amanda - saw Jerry Lee Lewis
here in N. Falls, a couple of years
ago.
He can still play and sing without
any trouble.
