Biography

(1928 – 1963)

Born Norman Alexander Milne in Liverpool in 1928, Michael Holliday was, without doubt, a crooner. Often called Britain’s Bing his relaxed style was also similar to Perry Como and Val Doonican.

He began his working life as a sailor in the Merchant Navy and, while on leave in New York, entered a talent contest at the famous Radio City Music Hall. He won and after he left the navy tried his hand as a singer in the dance halls of his native Liverpool.

His break came when he joined the Eric Winstone Orchestra and obtained a solo recording contract with Columbia.

He had a string of hits, often covers of American originals, but his career petered out in the early 60s.

He died, possibly of a drugs overdose, in October 1963.

His Grave is located at Anfield Cemetary Liverpool
