Indeed he did Roy. In fact, that was going to be my next clue.

TOMMY ROE – born in Atlanta, Georgia on 9 May 1942

“Sheila” was a US Number 1 hit for Tommy Roe in September 1962. However, he had to wait a further 6-and-a-half years until March 1969 for his second US Number 1 with “Dizzy” which was to stay in the top slot four consecutive weeks.

OK probably too easy but this 60s star had hits on both sides of Atlantic including a number 1 in US, still performing too

Roy, he’s indeed still performing – but only when he’s out of jail or not under arrest. Glyn Geoffrey Ellis (aka WAYNE FONTANA) doesn’t like paying fines – but then again who does? He served 11 months locked up under the Mental Health Act for setting fire to a court appointed bailiff’s car who at the time was attempting to collect “goods and chattels” of his because of outstanding fines. The reason for the relatively heavy 11-month sentence was because the bailiff was still inside the car at the time.

Roy, I can't let anyone beat to this one.

By coincidence, over the past couple of weeks I’ve been listening to a BBC Radio 2 two part profile on this group called “They Ain’t Heavy, They're the Hollies” hosted by the still working 84-year young DJ, Brian Matthews. Unfortunately, I have to report the two broadcasts were nothing special indeed; I’d go as far as to say I was a bit disappointed with it overall.

I know when that photograph of Allan Clarke (who I recognised) and Bernie Calvert (who I didn’t recognise) was taken …

Is that really Eric Haydock! – and the unnamed person standing next to him wearing jeans and a red soccer style shirt is Terry Sylvester, who took over from Graham Nash when he flew to the States to team up with David Crosby and Stephen Stills and later on, Neil Young. The two missing Hollies from the "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame" photo are drummer Bobby Elliot and guitarist Tony Hicks – but here they are on YouTube …
