RDP Thursday: Fame

As my call to fame has not yet been answered there is not very much to say, but I have a memory of a young man, Georgie Fame, who would appear in one of the public houses in  Bethnal Green Road (where I grew up)  with his music. He played piano and became quite influenced with jazz as he grew older. With time he was discovered and not only was he in name “Fame”, actually born Clive Powell from Lancashire, but he got the fame he deserved. He moved onto London and his career began. I have chosen the song Sunny which is a personal favourite of mine: so introducing Georgie Fame.

    • The photo shows him as I remember him, although as he grew older he filled out a little, but not too much. He always had a good voice. I knew him well as a Brit, but my jazzer husband also discovered him, not because of me, but by listening to records. He is very talented and still going strong.
