FURY ‘CROSS THE MERSEY

Billy Fury Memorial Liverpool UK

A lonely bunch of pink flowers on the greyest of days brought a flood of memories for the one who is arguably Liverpool’s/the UK’s hottest star of the 60s (well no contest really) the fabulous Billy Fury. One of many Merseyside superstars including the Beatles, Cilla Black and Gerry and the Pacemakers Fury was an original and true pioneer.  Allmusic journalist, Bruce Eder, said “His mix of rough-hewn good looks and unassuming masculinity, coupled with an underlying vulnerability, all presented with a good voice and some serious musical talent, helped turn Fury into a major rock and roll star in short order”. Can’t argue with that! Check Once upon a dream
