British singer, songwriter Shakin 'Stevens (Shakin' Stevens, ur. Michael Barrett) was born on March 4, 1948 in the South Wales town of Ely, in the County of Cardiff, the son of a miner, who already had 10 daughters.
Stevens heard early rock 'n' roll as a child, and a lasting impression on him made the film "Rock Around the Clock". He sang in the school, "Heartbreak Hotel" and spit his hips like Elvis, for which classmates nicknamed him "Shaky": "When I was in the Welsh school, there revolved a lot of records of this kind. In my opinion, age ten they got me hooked . I did not try to imitate anyone in particular. I listened to Joe Ternera, Louis Jordan, Tuitti Conway (Conway Twitty) ".
At age 15 he left school and collected his first composition. In fact, it was a gang of teenagers who had gathered together. It was around the time when the Americans were trying to sound like English groups like BEATLES and ROLLING STONES. But no matter how he tried to inspire students of rock 'n' roll, they remained deaf, and the first team Barreto had to play skiffle - music mouth organs, washboards, acoustic guitar and sticks with a tight rope, instead of bass.
My father wanted to become Michael furniture makers, but the son did not go on this way. Music School for Cervical and his peers, later known Welsh rockers Andy Feruezer-Lo (Andy Fairwether-Low) and Edmundca Dave (Dave Edmunds) was known to the whole of Cardiff Ely Racecourse Youth Club. There in 1960 he first heard his idol and future colleague named Rockin Louis (Rockin 'Louie), who sang and played drums in the band BACKBEATS.
Starting his career as the only rock 'n' roll singer Shakin 'Stevens passed all genres of music. In 1961 he sang in amateur group OLYMPICS. They did not know about American Olympians, was released in 1958 hit "Western Movies". Later he joined the COSSAKS, hereinafter - 4 years DENIMS, then sang and played guitar in REBELS and finally, BIG FIVE. Between 1962 and 1963 he sang in the famous London bar "Two I's", where once started the first British rock and rollers Cliff Richard (Cliff Richard), Joe Brown (Joe Brown) and Tommy Steele (Tommy Steele).
However, music does not make money, and Stevens earned the driver, the storekeeper, the seller of clothing. Eventually, he formed a band SHAKIN 'STEVENS & THE SUNSETS, soon to become a professional. Aug. 31, 1969, they gave the first concert in London, where he also played HELLRAISERS, WILD ANGELS, LEE TRAX & THE TRIBUTES and GOOD EARTH (later renamed MUNGO JERRY).
After a typical method of trial and error, a beginner artist Cervical groped communication required for movement from obscurity to the big stage. They played on the London stage at universities and colleges, as well as sites of England and Europe. They stood in the posters, along with artists such as Ian Durie (Ian Dury), Arthur Crudup (Arthur 'Big Boy' Crudup), Georgie Fame (Georgie Fame), Chuck Berry, DEEP PURPLE, David Bowie and ROLLING STONES.
The first contract to record the singer has achieved in the late '60s, when he was almost 20 years. In the spring 1969 session for THE SUNSETS made a major British DJ John Peel (John Peel), helped unwind myriad of British stars. He then owned a rock 'n' roll record company Dandellion. The material for the disc "A Legend" (Parlophone), later reissued as the "Collection", produced by Dave himself Emundc. He was so pleased with the material that Edmundc he decided to record and release a single "I Hear You Knocking". And he became a super-hit - Edmundc simulated rockabilly sound laconic THE SUNSETS.
The album "I'm No D.J." (1972) has sold 300 thousand copies, for novice artists were very good. The following year, Cervical and THE SUNSETS get an engagement in Holland and played a series of concerts with groups and ARGENT GREYHOUND in the Amsterdam club "Paradiso". Also in Holland in 1974 and beyond Stevens first solo single "Lonesome Town", and with the ensemble he recorded the album "Tiger". A year later, he recorded the record "Manhattan Melodrama" and starts thinking about a solo career.
Despite the fact that in 1972, according to a poll the newspaper "New Myuzikal Express" THE SUNSETS were recognized as the best live band of the year, however, the team has not achieved great success with the plates due to lack of promotional efforts of companies. Until 1976, THE SUNSETS released several CDs - "Rockin 'And Shakin'" (1972), "Shakin 'Stevens And the Sunsets" (1974) - and singles Dureco and Dynamite in Holland, where the band had a lot of fans.
