Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
Musician
    (November 19, 1927-December 23, 2000)
    Born in Bury, United Kingdom
    Birth name is Allan Smethurst
    Worked as a postman in Norfolk county, UK
    Recorded 'Hev Yew Gotta Loight, Boy?,' 'Followin' Th' Binder Round,' and 'You'll hatta come along a me'
    The novelty of a 'singing postman' wore off really quick.
    He had horrible teeth and resembled Gollum from 'Lord of the Rings.'
    A large majority of the songs he recorded have the word 'boy' in the title.
    In addition to having 'boy' in the title, nearly all of his song titles are spelled in the style of his accent, such as: 'Ha' Yer Fa'er Got a Dickey, Boy?'
    He struggled with alcoholism, which was caused by stage fright.
    He was a self taught guitarist.
    He managed to record over 80 different songs and release a 'best of' album.
    His best known song, 'Hev Yew Gotta Loight, Boy?' toppled a Beatles track from the number one spot of a Hit Parade in the UK.
    His music briefly sold more copies than that of The Beatles or The Rolling Stones.
    He died penniless.
