Wet Wet Wet

Wet Wet Wet

Wet Wet Wet are a Scottish band formed in 1982. They were hugely popular in the 1980’s and 90’s with a number of hits scoring high on the UK charts and around the world.

They are probably best known for their cover of The Troggs‘ 1960s hit “Love Is All Around“, which was used on the soundtrack to the film Four Weddings and a Funeral. It was a massive international success and spent 15 weeks at the top of the British charts.

Their 1997 album Ten, coincided with their decade at the top, but also signalled a slide in their commercial popularity and the band split in 1999.

Between 2004 and 2017 Wet Wet Wet produced one more album, went on tour and headlined at festivals in the UK but split after the lead vocal (Marti Pellow) left to concentrate on solo work.

Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney was born on March 26, 1968 in Tennessee. Although he was brought up on Country music and Rock and Roll, he didn’t really take a personal interest until he received a guitar as a Christmas present. He taught himself to play, joined the local bluegrass band and wrote some lyrics which he tried out in bars and restaurants. In 1989 he released a demo album and from the sales bought a new guitar. He graduated from college in 1990 with a degree in advertising and then moved to Nashville where he performed at several clubs. His first record deal was with the Capricorn label from where he released the first of many albums (In My Wildest Dreams) in 1993 . Unfortunately, Capricorn closed its Country section soon after but the album sold over 100,000 copies and set Kenny on the road to stardom.

Kenny Chesney has gone from strength to strength and has received many Academy of Country Music awards as well as Country Music Association awards and is one of the most popular touring acts in country music, regularly selling out the venues in which he performs.

About

Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, known better by his professional name, George Michael is an English pop singer / songwriter who first rose to fame in the 1980s as one half of the pop duo Wham!

Childhood: George Michael’s father, a Greek Cypriot moved to England in the 1950s and changed his name to Jack Panos. His mother was Lesley Angold Harrison. George was born and raised in North London.

Career: Wham! formed in 1981 and propelled George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley to chart success with massive hits such as Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, Club Tropicana and Last Christmas.  Wham! split in 1986 after releasing a farewell single for their fans, entitled Edge of Heaven.

Solo Career: In 1984, Careless Whisper was released as a solo single for George. This was followed in 1986 with ‘A Different Corner’, which won George Michael a Grammy Award. In 1987, George recorded a duet with Aretha Franklin. ‘I Knew You Were Waiting  reached number one in the UK and US singles charts.

Faith was George Michael’s first solo album release, which hit the stores in 1987. ‘I Want Your Sex’ was the debut single from the album and was banned from a number of stores for its highly sexualized lyrics. The track was featured on the soundtrack to Beverley Hills Cop II. Regardless of censorship efforts, the track charted at number two in the US and three in the UK. The title track from the album was released as the second single and was a huge success, reaching number one in the US and two in the UK. Faith has been awarded a Diamond certification and has sold over 20 million across the globe.

Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1 was released in 1990. George Michael refused to take part in any promotional activities for the album and as a result, no videos were made for the singles from this album. Despite this, ‘Praying For Time’ still reached number six in the UK and was a number one hit in the United States. The album was denied a number one position in the States but in the UK, he reached the lucrative top spot. In 1992, the album was certified four times platinum and has sold over eight million copies worldwide. The single ‘Freedom 90’ was supported by a music video but George refused to appear in it. Instead, he drafted in a group of supermodels, to appear in the video and mime the words to the song.

At the end of 1991, George Michael’s duet with Elton John on Elton’s ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’ was released and became a huge success and was the only modern number one single to have been recorded at an outdoor venue (Wembley Arena).

George Michael’s intended third album, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 2 became the victim of a feud with his record label, Sony. Michael scrapped the album and the single ‘Too Funky’ was the final release for Sony before George became embroiled in lengthy proceedings to release himself from his contract.

After a brief break from music, George released the single ‘Jesus to a Child’ in 1994, the song was a tribute to his lover, Anselmo Feleppa, who had died the previous year. The single went straight to number one in the UK and seven in the US. Its follow-up, ‘Fastlove’ was also a UK number one. The accompanying album, Older, was George’s first in six years.

George Michael’s greatest hits package, Ladies & Gentlemen: The Best of George Michael was released in 1998. Songs from the Last Century was released in 1999 and featured a number of re-workings of songs by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Sting.

Patience, released in 2004 was George Michael’s first album of original material in eight years. The lead single ‘Shoot The Dog’ sparked some controversy for its open criticism of the British and US involvement in the war in Iraq.

George’s second greatest hits release, Twentyfive, was released in 2006 and was a number one hit in the UK. The 2-CD set contained some songs from the Wham! era as well as three new songs, including a duet with Mutya Buena of Sugababes and a version of ‘Heal the Pain’, recorded with Sir Paul McCartney. George undertook a 50-date arena tour to promote the album.

Personal Life: In the past, there has been a great deal of speculation surrounding George Michael’s sexuality. During his time in Wham! there were a number of tabloid articles which speculated on his relationships with actresses such as Whoopi Goldberg and Brooke Shields. His homosexuality was later made public and George has stated that he hid his sexuality because he was worried about the impact it may have on his mother.

In 1998, George Michael was arrested in Los Angeles, for ‘engaging in a lewd act’ in a public toilet. He was fined $810 for the incident and was forced to undertake 80 hours of community service. The video for his song ‘Outside’ was a humourous take on the incident and featured men dressed as policemen kissing in a public toilet. The arresting officer, Rodriguez, took George Michael to court, claiming that the video mocked him and that he had been slandered by Michael in interviews. The case was dismissed by the courts.

In 2006, George Michael was arrested for possession of cannabis, then after several arrests for drugs offences.  In 2010 George was fined and given a five-year driving ban and a prison sentence after admitting driving under the influence of drugs, having crashed his Range Rover into a Snappy Snaps photo store in Hampstead.

Nonetheless, he had evidently rediscovered his appetite for performing and recording. In 2011 he made a cover version of New Order’s hit True Faith for the Comic Relief charity, and recorded an MP3 version of Stevie Wonder’s You and I as a wedding gift for Prince William and Kate Middleton.

He launched his Symphonica Tour in Prague in August 2011. However, it was cut short when he fell ill with severe pneumonia in November, after the tour had reached Frankfurt, and he was admitted to hospital in Vienna.

He spent a week in intensive care and was not discharged from hospital until 21 December. Two days later he made a public speech outside his home in Highgate, north London, saying that the staff at the Vienna general hospital had saved his life. He suffered a further medical emergency in May 2013, when he had to be airlifted to hospital after he fell out of a car travelling on the M1.

In June 2012 Michael released the single White Light to mark the 30th anniversary of Wham Rap!. In March 2014 he released Symphonica, which became his seventh solo album to top the UK chart.

In 2016, Michael announced that a second documentary on his life, entitled Freedom, was set to be released in March 2017

Michael was found dead at home on Christmas Day 2016 of suspected heart failure.

Timothy Zedd Mosley (born March 10, 1972), better known by his stage name Timbaland, is an American record producer, rapper, singer, songwriter and DJ.

Timbaland’s first full credit production work was in 1996 on Ginuwine…the Bachelor for R&B singer Ginuwine. After further work on Aaliyah’s 1996 album One in a Millionand Missy Elliott’s 1997 album Supa Dupa Fly.  He became a prominent producer for R&B and hip hop artists. As a rapper he initially released several albums with fellow rapper Magoo, followed by his debut solo album Tim’s Bio in 1998. In 2002, he produced the hit single “Cry Me a River” for Justin Timberlake, going on to produce most of Timberlake’s subsequent LPs such as FutureSex/LoveSounds and The 20/20 Experience and their respective hit singles. A Timbaland-owned imprint label, Mosley Music Group, featured artists such as Nelly Furtado, whose Timbaland-produced album Loose (2006) was a commercial and critical success. In 2007, Timbaland released a solo album, Shock Value, which was followed by Shock Value II in 2009.

Aside from the aforementioned artists, Timbaland’s production credits from the 2000s forward include work with Jay-Z, Nas, Ludacris, Bubba Sparxxx, Madonna, Rihanna, OneRepublic, Brandy, Drake, Rick Ross and others. As a songwriter he has written as of 2014, 85 UK hits and 99 hits Stateside. Timbaland has received widespread acclaim for his production style. In 2007, Entertainment Weekly stated that “just about every current pop trend can be traced back to him — from sultry, urban-edged R&B songstresses … to the art of incorporating avant-garde sounds into No. 1 hits.”

Tight Fit

Tight Fit are a British pop group who had a number of hits in the early 1980s, with their cover version of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” in 1982.  Steve Grant was teamed up with female singers Denise Gyngell and Julie Harris. The song reached No.1 in the UK for three weeks in March 1982 and the line-up were catapulted into sudden and unexpected stardom.

Tight Fit are a British pop group who had a number of hits in the early 1980s, including a UK No.1 (for three weeks) with their cover version of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” in 1982.

In 1981, record producer Ken Gold came up with the idea to record a single made up of a medley of 1960s songs. The medley trend was in full swing at this time, following the success of Starsound and their Stars on 45 singles. He put together a group of male/female session singers and released “Back to the 60s” under the group title, Tight Fit. The song became a hit in the summer and reached No.4 in the UK Singles Chart. Instead of the sessions singers who sang on the record, a group of actor/ singers including Lowri-Ann Richards and Robert Pereno, were hired to front the group when Tight Fit first appeared on the BBC’s music show Top of the Pops. A follow-up, “Back to the 60s Part 2” was released soon after and it reached No.33 in the UK Top 40.

Later in the year record producer Tim Friese-Greene recorded a version of the song “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” with another group of session singers. The singer was one of the former lead, drummer and percussionist from British ’70s band ‘City Boy’, Roy Ward. The song was released in early 1982, again under the name Tight Fit. The song gained instant attention and so a new group was formed to front it. Dancer, singer and male model Steve Grant was teamed up with female singers Denise Gyngell and Julie Harris. The song reached No.1 in the UK for three weeks in March 1982 and the line-up were catapulted into sudden and unexpected stardom.

Satisfied that this line-up could actually sing in their own right, Friese-Greene produced their next single, “Fantasy Island” – a song by The Millionaires which had been in the Dutch Eurovision Song Contest heats. The song, in a very similar vein to pop group ABBA, also became a success, reaching No.5 in May 1982.

The group then set about recording an album as well as rehearsing for their first tour. A third single was released in August. “Secret Heart” was not as big as a success as the previous two and stalled at No.41. The debut album was released soon after, but coincided with both Harris and Gyngell leaving the group. Both unhappy with their contract, they claimed that they were not receiving any royalties from their hits and were being paid a paltry wage for their work. Swiftly two new female singers, Vicky Pemberton and Carol Stevens, were employed to take their place and the group released another single, “I’m Undecided” – a song from the album, with new vocals. The song failed to make the UK Chart and this signalled the end of Tight Fit’s brief pop stardom. In an interview, Harris stated that the public did not take to the new line-up and had she and Gyngell been still with the group, it would have likely been a hit.

The following year, Tight Fit released one more single – a cover of Stephen Stills’ “Love The One You’re With”. Under the banner, Steve Grant with Tight Fit, the song completely missed the chart and the group duly split-up.
