Jackie Dennis

Biography

b. 1942, Edinburgh, Scotland. Dennis was uncovered by UK comedians Mike and Bernie Winters, when he was executing at an American Atmosphere Force bottom in Prestwick. They brought him to the eye of best agent Eve Taylor and she immediately booked him in the 6.5 Special tv program. Dennis’ influence was instant and he was quickly put into the cast from the 6.5 Special film; it had been actually announced that he was to start out filming The Jackie Dennis Tale. The future appeared very bright certainly in 1958 for the energetic, kilt-wearing, 15-year-old pop vocalist, whose 1st record ‘La Dee Dah’, a cover edition of Billy And Lillie’s US strike, had leapt in to the UK Best 20 just fourteen days after its launch. Tv and live bookings flooded in and he was actually invited to the united states to surface in Perry Como’s top-rated tv program, where he was launched as ‘Britain’s Ricky Nelson’. Despite all of this, record buyers didn’t purchase his following releases in virtually any amount and he faded from the general public eye just like quickly as he previously arrived.
