The Sun Is Rising for Chris Norman

Originally formed in Yorkshire, in 1966, Smokie hit the British pop charts several times during the late ’70s, influenced by the band’s stay on Mickie Most’s Rak Records as well as the writers of most of the band’s hit material, Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman. They comprised of vocalist Chris Norman, bassist Terry Utley, guitarist Alan Silson, and drummer Pete Spencer.
Chris Norman left Smokie in 1986 and went on to have a very successful solo career and is still performing and recording today with a new single out now and an album due out in September.

About Bob Simpson

The Ojays were right about me - I Love Music, any kinda music! Brought up on The Beatles, wandered through the seventies dancing to anything from reggae to Led Zepplin and took up the microphone and decks all around East London and Essex when I wasn't doing my boring day job. Entered the world of radio in July 2011 and feel home at last. Thanks for visiting. Send me a message or request via Facebook on the link below - you are most welcome.
