Nice wholesome decade - with not a mobile phone in sight.

I wish I could have known him then...

God, it's not Cliff Richard is it?

user1466795981 Tue 09-Aug-16 20:25:35

No - not Cliff Richard - he's more associated with end of 50s rather than beginning. (This should narrow it down. It obviously isn't Frankie Laine)

Not at all. I've had a massive crush on James Dean since I was 14 years old.

I'm not judging. I've always had a thing for Rudolph Valentino...

Unicorn1981 - I can exactly see where you're coming from - he definitely had something about him!!

user1466795981 Tue 09-Aug-16 20:34:35

- I had to think then who you meant!! no!

Not odd at all. I remember adoring General Pitney was I was 15 /16 in the mid 1980s

user1466795981 Tue 09-Aug-16 20:36:33

I've just looked him up Robotic as wasn't that familiar with him - yes I can definitely see the attraction!

I think Elton John sort of sums this up in his line from 'Candle in the Wind'

"I would've liked to have known you, but I was just a kid...."

user1466795981 Tue 09-Aug-16 20:38:00

*Sorry if I got the line slightly wrong there...

Dailymail - I liked him as well!!

The PP who said Cliff Richard IS close in terms of date of birth....

"General Pitney"

I don't recall learning about him in history lessons. grin

I've had a crush on Dirk Bogarde for years. An absolute delight.

liz70 Tue 09-Aug-16 20:42:45

Mr. Wycherley? Although he's maybe more early 60s.

ThePortlyPinUp Tue 09-Aug-16 20:43:47

Adam Faith?
Billy Fury?

user1466795981 Tue 09-Aug-16 20:43:56

No - not him, although he's associated as well with early 60s.

Still living, or passed on?

user1466795981 Tue 09-Aug-16 20:47:47

Unfortunately, passed on, liz70

user1466795981 Tue 09-Aug-16 21:04:12

ThePortlyPinUp - sorry I missed that - you've said it!!

It IS Adam Faith!!

My favourite song of his is "The Time has Come" - I love the line that goes

'Please believe me I won't make the same mistake again....'

Congratulations Portly (flowers)

I love Elvis 😍

user1466795981 Tue 09-Aug-16 21:05:23

I have just done a massive fail as I don't know how to get the flowers symbol up sad

(Raises glass to not being very intelligent)

I've had a thing for David Soul since I watched Starsky and Hutch back in the seventies!!! Well, until I read about him abusing his wives. That killed it.

user1466795981 Tue 09-Aug-16 21:37:08

Oh LastGirl - I had a thing for him as well. I can fully remember going into a record shop and asking for his song 'Silver Lady'!!!
