Russ is one of the many forgotten pop stars of the 50's and 60's;Johnny Gentle,Terry Dene,Emil Ford,Craig Douglas et al. Where are they now?

    Had a quick look,and they're all still around! Johnny Gentle,now 74,ended up as a joiner,and now lives in Kent.Terry Dene,now 72,is still performing,recently at the "100 club". Emile Forde,now 73,was the first black singer in the U.K. to sell a million,holding the record for the longest titled song with "What do You Want to Make Those Eye's at me for?" And finally,Craig Douglas,now 70,and in a wheelchair,but still singing in public,at benefits!

    I have put my interview with Russ Hamilton (done in 1999) on utube hoping more people will get to know him. I have been a big fan of his when I was young and really sad to hear his story and how he was cheated of his income. He told me that he did not even get to keep his gold record! He was extremely popular all over the world especially in the late 50s and very unfortunate regarding receiving the reward of his success. Yes, he certainly should be remembered in the Hall of Fame. He told me that he wished he had a much better manager and he would have made millions! Spencer Leigh’s press article gave a really good review of Russ. If you are interested to hear what Russ told me, you can go to this utube site:
