Adam Faith has today’s almost forgotten track

Adam Faith was a singer of some talent, but not a great deal…he broke in Britain before the Beatles, but following Cliff Richard, and was saddled with a “rock and roll” name by his managers of the time…he scored a few hits in England, and had the right look to be quite popular over there, but he surprised everyone when he tagged on to the British Invasion in the mid-60s and scored a couple of minor hits over here too, most notably this one…following his life as a performer, Adam became an actor and then an artist manager, working closely with Roger Daltrey and Leo Sayer in that capacity…but he’s best known these days as Jim’s manager in the films That’ll Be the Day and Stardust…the mark he made was not indelible, but certainly not eraseable either…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
