HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER
Proby was born James Marcus Smith in Houston, Texas on 6 November 1938. (…) In 1957 Jimmy went to Hollywood to become a movie star and a singer. In Hollywood he looked up his old friend Tommy Sands, who advised him to take vocal coaching with the famous Lillian Goodman. (…) Jimmy’s name was changed to Jett Powers by the agents Gaby, Lutz, Heller and Loeb, who represented such names as Liberace, Johnny Ray, Kay Star and Frankie Laine, just to name a few. Two singles were released on Design Records.
Jett Powers met and hung out with a lot of now famous people, like Sharon Sheeley, who wrote Poor Little Fool for Ricky Nelson, Eddie Cochran, Elvis’s ex-girlfriend Dotty Harmony who Jett became engaged to, Kim Fowley, Johnny & Dorsey Burnette and many, many others in the industry (…)
In 1962 Sharon Sheeley got Jett a recording contract with Liberty Records and a song-writing contract with Liberty’s publishing arm Metric Music. Sharon changed Jett’s name to PJ. Proby, after an old boyfriend of her from her high school. Using his real name James Marcus Smith he wrote numerous songs for Metric Music and some of them became hits. The most well known songs are the Searchers’ hit Ain’t Gonna Kiss Ya, Johnny Burnette’s Clown Shoes and I Only Came To Dance With You by The Walker Brothers. Quoted from / All Rights Reserved:
Between 2015 and 2018 I produced and presented 51 shows for the revived pirate station RADIO SUTCH, the brainchild of English eccentric Screaming Lord Sutch. Each episode highlights a particular member of Screaming Lord Sutch’s backing group The Savages, of which dozens of line-ups are documented. Sutch was usually backed by younger musicians and some Savages became famous: Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore, Neil Christian, Noel Redding, Mick Abrahams, etcetera.
