P.J.Proby is the best singer ever! I know he's had his ups & downs & doesn't appeal to everybody but I'm talking about his VOICE! He's a brilliant singer of every type of song. I went to see him in April this year in Nottingham & he was amazing!! 75 years young & non stop onstage for 2 hours 10 minutes. He's absolutely unique & to us fans he's a LEGEND.....when will the rest of the pop music world see that also??
Saw P.J.Proby 5 times in 2004 when he toured the East Coast of Australia. Every show he put on was fantastic. I play his music every day. Can't stop thinking about him. Would definatley go and see him again next time he's in Australia. Please come back to us P.J.
THE PROBY-CD WILL BE RELEASED THE 16th OF JUNE 2008
