There's only two Alvin Stardusts!

Recommended Posts

The wonders of the interweb...

Yesterday while surfing I discovered that the original Alvin Stardust was Pete Shelly (no, not that one!) who wrote and recorded Alvin's first hit My Coo Ca Choo  before retiring into the background and letting Mr. Fenton take the applause. However in a bizarre twist it turns out there were two Shane Fenton's too, with the original (Johnny Theakston) dying tragically aged just 17.

RIP to Theakston and his replacement as Shane Fenton (A.K.A. Bernard Jewry) the one I was familiar with who died in 2014 aged 72.

Mr. Shelley had a couple of hits under his own name including Love Me, Love My Dog currently resides in Canada - Rock On. :headbang

*********************

In an unrelated turn of events there were two Martha's in the original Muffins line-up.
