I was wondering about this the other day.

Vic Steele left the band to become a draughtsman, and Tony Hicks was an apprentice electrician. But what did the other Hollies do before they turned pro?

Bernie Calvert was in a factory, I forget what he was doing. I can imagine Allan Clarke working in a factory or something but I just can't picture Graham Nash...

Does anyone know what the Hollies were in previous lives?

Hi Michael

On the back of one of the many, many, many Best of the Hollies albums I have found the following note:

Graham Nash - After leaving school he worked in an engineering factory and later behind a Post Office counter.

Allan has worked as an apprentice engineer, a mill hand, a furniture salesman, a silk screen printer and a jacquard cutter.

Tony Hicks joined a firm of electrical engineers.

Bobby Elliot had a four year stint as an apprentice mechanical engineer.

Berbard Calvert made washing machine components. (What? Not an engineer also?)

Allan was a very busy guy with all those jobs (not at the same time of course). Laughing Laughing Laughing

Bernie seems like the odd one out because he wasn't an engineer like the others. I remember reading somewhere about Bernie making washing machine components by day and playing piano at the local club at night.

Terry has been playing in bands since the age of about 14 (The Escorts, Swinging Blue Jeans and The Hollies). As some of you know Terry now lives in Canada and is a successful solo artist with his own website.

While we are on the subject of previous lives (as Michael put it), I was just wondering if anyone knows what Alan (Coates), Ray, Ian, and Carl did before becoming professional musicians Question

All The Best
