If The Singers Left... (what would happen to the groups?)

Dawn James, uncredited writer, Rave, August 1965

THERE ARE ALWAYS A LOT OF RUMOURS BUZZING ROUND THE POP SCENE THAT CERTAIN MEMBERS OF A GROUP ARE THINKING ABOUT LEAVING. THIS STORY DOESN'T SAY THAT ANY MEMBER OF ANY GROUP IS THINKING OF LEAVING, IT JUST LOOKS TO THE FUTURE AND ABOUT WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN IF THE SINGERS IN SOME OF OUR GROUPS DID. THE IDEA OF THIS STORY IS TO FIND OUT JUST HOW IMPORTANT THE SINGER IN THE GROUP REALLY IS — AND FROM WHAT IS SAID — AND WHAT IS NOT SAID — ON THE FOLLOWING PAGES, YOU'LL SEE.

Total word count of piece: 1971
