Guest Richard Bergman

How many performers can you think of who have flirted with soul music ...ie member of band / producer etc but have achieved much greater success in another field ......

At the time of writing I can only think of :

Richard Pryor

Bill Cosby

Cassius Clay

Rosey Grier

Surely there are many more.......

Was Joe Frazier the same guy who recorded FRK?

I think they used to play an instrumental at Cleethorpes recorded by David Macallum, one of the actors in 'Man from uncle'.

Ed

David Mcallum recorded for Staeside if memory seves me correct.....

Searling told me a story about Will Collins (and Willpower) about when he used to drive a bakers van around New York before cutting Anything I Can Do.

(After hearing the story Dave Malloy wanted to drive a Warbutons van around Bolton) huh.gif

I remember watching a Richard Burton film "Bluebeard" many Years ago, not one of his best, I must say, but there was a fairly "racy" scene with the supporting Actress which made the thing watchable, late at night, anyhow it turns out to be .... Joey Heatherton, now she's a game Girl!!

Was Searling really a postman ?

So that's where all the rare stuff came from, Lancashire soulies ordering from John Anderson and knicked by tricky dicky during the post round.
