Biography

There are several artists named The Outsiders (13 are mentioned here):

(1) The Outsiders (theoutsiders.eu) were a sixties beat band from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Formed in 1960 as a neighbourhood band from Amsterdam East, The Outsiders became one of the most succesful Dutch groups of the 1960s. They made some lastingly great records and never recorded anyone else’s material, with singer Wally Tax writing the lyrics and guitarist Ron Splinter the music for nearly all of the twelve 45s and three LPs they made. Other band members included Appie Rammers on bass, Leendert Busch on drums, Ron Splinter on guitar and Tom Krabbendam also on guitar. They are the subject of an official biography written by Jerome Blanes. For more information see the author’s website.

(2) A US band from Ohio. They started in 1959 as Tom King And The Starfires. After the arrival of the Beatles they changed their sound and changed their name to The Outsiders. Signing to Capitol at the beginning of 1966 their first single Time Won’t Let Me was a Number 5 pop hit. They scored 3 more Top Thirty hits that year. Singer Sonny Geraci was later in the band Climax.

(3) The Outsiders were an English punk band from Wimbledon led by Adrian Borland(vocals/guitar). They released two albums (Calling on youth 1977, Close UP 1978) before Michael Dudley (drums) and Graham Green joined the band, replacing the original bass player, Bob Lawrence and thus became The Sound.

    no diss to hellraiser (he seems to know his shit), but this page should really be devoted to the dutch outsiders. likely the finest European band outside of Can... period! problem is nobody knows them. people think they're the one-hit wonder "time won't let me" band. CQ deserves some recognition ;)
