The Original Paper Lace
In 1967 when Singer/Drummer Phil Wright got together with Bass player Cliff Fish, little did they realise that by 1974 they would have sold over 30 million records with the biggest selling songs in the world of that year which included “Billy Don’t be a Hero”, “The Night Chicago Died”, “The Black-eyed Boys”, “Hitchin’ a
Ride 74”, “So What if I Am” and many more.
Internationally “The Night Chicago Died” reached number one across the globe, winning the title of “Largest Selling Single of 1974 Worldwide”
Record sales multiplied in Australia, New Zealand,
Canada, Germany and Spain and the albums earned them gold discs in all these countries.
They toured extensively until the mid-eighties when musical differences dictated a parting of the ways.
Now in 2022, Phil Wright, and Cliff Fish the original lead vocalist /drummer and Bassist from the 70’s has inducted into the band 2 Giants of the music industry
Phil Hendriks, lead vocal front man/guitarist from Les McKuen’s Bay City Rollers’ fame and Dave Major, keyboards, and vocalist extraordinaire, formerly with Marc Bolan and T REX to form a truly super group
So, there you have it, four huge talents, two originals and two new guys bringing you the unique, totally live, authentic seventies sound of PAPER LACE.
Other hits include I Did What I Did for Maria, sealed with a Kiss and Dreams Are Ten a Penny.
This really is a nostalgic evening of songs we all grew up with, by the original artists we heard do them first!
Paper Lace will be joined by special guests: Blondied
