Hello all,

This is my first time posting although I must admit I have trolled this board for a little while. After seeing how nicely people interact I decided to finally join.

Although I am only 44 I have been a fan since the early 70ís. I started listening to rock n roll radio and watching it on TV by my own choosing when I was 3. (My mom vividly remembered it.) I remember seeing the lads on TV a lot in the 70ís (Yes, even in America.) and having a crush on Tony. (A darned good early crush to have if you ask me not only for looks but what a talent!) While I never stopped listening to new material I know little beyond the basics of the band.

I donít know how much people introduce themselves around here but read on if you are interested. I am an artisan cake designer with my own business (www.bewitchingelegance.com) and am also currently writing two books; one on home entertaining and the other a novel. (I donít write fan fiction.) I am a HUGE Paul Revere & the Raiders fan/collector and way too much of my brain capacity is taken up with useless knowledge about them. While I like to think that I enjoy a wide variety of music I really donít. Vintage, classic and garage rock reign supreme with me.

I would love to hear peopleís stories. If you have one to share or want someone to brag to about your collection to then please do. I am a good fresh set of ears so even if your friends and family are sick of your stories they are all new to me. I am not well chuffed about rumors but I love a happy fan story.

Cheers!
Diane

Welcome Diane. I hope you will enjoy finding out more about The Hollies. You had very good taste when you were younger! (and still have, of course!)
I have only become a 'fan' in recent years, mainly because they are still touring and also because the current line-up of guys give a fantastic show. It's down to them (and the members of this board) that I have wanted to find out more about The Hollies and their great music history. I'm still learning all the time.
I'm just going to find out about Paul Revere & The Raiders, as I know absolutely nothing about them. I always like to hear something new.

Welcome here to the Forum, Diane!

I have been a Paul revere & the Raiders collector, too, you really have good taste of music. Sadly I've never seen them live, but I've been catching up with the Hollies quite frequently during the last years, so I've seen between 40 and 50 shows I guess.

Best regards from Knut

Would you believe the Hollies had power to stay by evolution of their style from Buddy Holly ? That's for certain because they follow what goes around, write on and go out on the road. They did it then, they do it now - please do it always.

Hello everyone,

I'm new here and I've just got back into the orbit of The Hollies... after a lifetime. Their music of the 60s and 70s coincided with my schooldays, only through the radio and TV's Top of the Pops, though. By the time I left school I was listening to all the singer songwriters of the era too and somehow lost track of The Hollies along the way.

I got into proactive listening after many years, when I kept noticing a poster for their concert and thinking The Hollies, who are they now? Should I go and see them? I always loved their music! (Yes, I've got my ticket. I'm going.) I started to uncover what I'd missed. I'm working my way up to the present day. So much I'd never heard before. Some lovely surprises in album tracks. I have a few questions and things I'd like to talk about, but it's taking me a while to frame the questions. So here's a simple one (I hope) to start with:

Is it possible to buy recordings of the live Whiter Shade of Pale and Let it Be that are on youtube? With thanks and best wishes C.

Good Afternoon Alexandra and welcome! I can't answer your questions about the songs on you tube and as there have been no replies to some one's question about The Hollies and Glen Campbell I assume that no - one can answer that either.
What I can tell you is that the current band will give you a fantastic night next year.
My family and I have noticed that these guys actually enjoy being on stage and playing music together, unlike some other bands who, as Peter once said, are only touring because their pension pot is low.
I look forward to being able to answer at least some of your future questions.
