Brief background on Billy Fury and his amazing popularity.
Billy Fury was born Ronald William Wycherley in Liverpool on the 17th April 1940. He was an internationally successful British pop singer from the late 1950s to the early 1960s, and remained an active songwriter until the 1980s. Rheumatic fever, which damaged his heart, contributed to his death in 1983.
In the sixties Billy Fury had more Decca hits than any other artist including the Rolling Stones. He equalled 'The Beatles' record of 24 hits and spent a total of 332 weeks on the
UK charts. He was one of the top four biggest selling artist of the sixties alongside The Beatles, Cliff and Elvis.
Widely regarded by many as the foremost rock n roller the UK has ever produced. Such is his popularity that in 2007 a bronze statue of Billy was unveiled at the Liverpool Albert
Dock and more recently in 2011, 'Billy Fury Way' was opened in London.
