    The Beatles often played and sang badly, but as sputnik says, somehow it worked. They got a lot less ragged as time went on. I watched the movie Backbeat again last night and although it's got a few problems, it captures a lot of The Beatles early sound and beginnings.
    In whole Europe, actually.

    So it's kinda normal Americans don't know who he is.
    If I wasn't such a compulsive gossip reader I too would have no idea who the hell Carrie Underwood, for instance, is.

    plus, he was famous back when the TV was still black & white, so to say.

    Default In Case You Didn't Know, Cliff Is Pretty Famous

    Robbie Williams is the new Cliff Richard?

    I'm not sure it was an attack, just a commentary. The Beatles played rough in their early career, and that was their style. When Epstein made them over with suits and 'french cut' mop tops, they almost had fits. They started out as rough and ready players, where as CR was more the smooth and polished pop star.

    And speaking of famous everywhere but America

    This coming from a man who sang, "I will always be a bachelor boy"!!!

    CR lives with his partner of 15 years who is a famous New York Catholic Priest that left the order about 5 years ago to spend more time with the STRAIGHT Mr Cliff Richards. They divide their time between all CR houses and the ex-priest deals with all Cliffleys administration.

    Now, make of that what you will but it sounds like the bitchy Queen Cliffley screaming to finally come outa dat Closet?????

    Some singers are loved for their off-kilter voices, Frank Sinatra for example, was often dissonant with the music he was singing along to...and it worked!
