The history of "Smokie" began in 1967. in a small English town of Bradford, where one of the schools studied are two inseparable friend - Christopher Ward Norman and Alan Sillson that in whatever has been decided to be a rock star. The guys have had no special musical training, and the first concert of their activity was limited to appearances at school parties and cheap pubs, and the repertoire consisted of 80% of the hits "Beatles" and other kings of rock scene. However, over time, and appeared in the repertoire of his songs, and in 1968, changing name to "Kindness" ( "Kindness").

In 1973, Mr.. in a small London cafe guys met with famous producers and songwriters Nicky staid and Michael Chapman (two Che), who suggested that "unfavorable" name "Kindness" replaced by succinct and trenchant "Smokie". CD "Changing all the time", . written taking into account the performance specification of "Smokey", . hit the charts, . and the song "Don't play your rock'n'roll to me" led the charts in many European countries (especially in Germany, . where the band immediately gained cult status),
. Began a rapid ascent of "Smokie" on top of musical Olympus.

The next record is even more strengthened the position of the group in Europe and allowed "Smokie" to break into the U.S. music market. Charts headed next hits "Smokie" - "Wild wild angels" and the legendary "Wat can I do". Musicians tours a lot and experimenting with sound and stage show, but the dependence on the requirements of the record companies are increasingly depressing music, practically devoid (by virtue of the hard conditions of the contract) the right to self-expression.

  • I am so surprised and happy for you and your wife Linda that you two stayed married all these years. I unfortunately was married and 16 had three kids. He has been married 14 times, I was the first so I don't think it was so much me. I remarried at 22 and had two daughters. Unfortunately, my son Ricky committed suicide on December 10, 2002. Then my daughter, Lisa died on December 28, 2013 or a mixture of pain killers and alcohol. It was an accidental overdose. I was so sorry to hear of your son and his accident. I can't expresses to you and Linda how sorry I am. It is certainly heartbreaking to loose a child. My husband has fought cancer for a year, beat it, but he has a lot more health issues and I am so afraid I will loose him. I just discovered your talent a couple of years ago and do not know why I never knew you. I live in the USA and I don't know if you have ever been here or not. I really love your music and I can't help but like Living next door to Alice. It is cute. Your others songs are so special. God really blessed you with a talent and a wonderful wife. I guess all in all we are very lucky. I have never written a musician before, but when I read your bio, I just had to say to you both - Your are very lucky to have found each other and I am so sorry about the loss of your son. Thoughts and prayers. Glenda
