Budgie wiv Stardust Wings: Adam Faith

Anthony O'Grady, RAM, 29 June 1975

IN THE OLDE DAYS of Rock and Roll, it seemed as soon as anyone made No. 1 in the charts he wasn’t content to be just a pop singer anymore, he wanted to be a movie star too. Elvis Presley set the style by visiting Hollywood every few months to knock off yet another cinematic box office success. Tommy Steele starred in (wot else?) The Tommy Steele Story. Cliff Richard whizzed through Expresso Bongo, The Young Ones and Summer Holiday. And Adam Faith was seen in Beat Girl, Mix Me A Person and Never Let Go.
