Personalities | Georgie Fame | Sixties | Rock

(Keyboards, vocals, b. 1943)

Real name Clive Powell, his million-selling ‘Yeah Yeah’ in 1964 triggered a chart run that included two more UK No. 1s in the self-composed ‘Get Away’ and – also a US Top 10 entry – 1967’s ‘Ballad Of Bonnie And Clyde’. Though there have been no more hits since 1971’s ‘Rosetta’ (with ex-Animal Alan Price), Fame is now financially secure without any – but he continues to take occasional pot-shots at the charts. In the 1990s, he was most often seen in the bands of Van Morrison and Bill Wyman.
