Fame at last: Blues and jazz legend Georgie Fame performs tonight

First published in

Blues and jazz legend Georgie Fame will thrill the Rose Theatre tomorrow in a one-night-only gig.

Fame, who had a series of No 1 hits in the 1960s, has collaborated with the biggest names in the business, including Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, and Muddy Waters.

His first hit Yeh Yeh, with band the Blue Flames, knocked the Beatles off the No 1 perch in 1964.

A pianist growing up, he got into the swing of things when rock’n’roll began to invade the airwaves in the 1950s.

He is well-known for his prowess on the Hammond organ – featured on multiple Van Morrison albums – as well as his singing.
