I have also seen Wayne Fontana pay tribute to PJ by doing 'Hold Me' as a closing song in his show. Neither can match PJ as a singer or performer but a sure way to get everyone dancing.

Hi Dave,
Well, at least it's free P.J. Proby advertisement. Smiley People may think: Now, let's go and see the real deal! Hopefully that's what bookers and show promoters will think...

Would be nice if promoters did think this way.

I think it is a lovely compliment to PJ if others sing his legendary songs. But...it will show others that you cant better PJ at singing anything. Of course I am not biased Wink Grin

Any song that P.J. sings, whether he did it originally or not, can never be bettered.He makes songs his own.....all part of his magic!

I'm sure P.J. will be singing better than ever on his forthcoming theatre dates. A few things weighing on his mind have now been dealt with & we'll all benefit from that.
  I haven't seen him onstage for 18 months so I can't wait!!!

I've just read in the July issue of "The Beat" magazine that because Mike Pender sings "Hold me" at every stage appearance, his fan club founder Roger Askey,says that this song is now Mike's "own"!! What a larf! Mike's a good singer,nowhere near as good as P.J. though.I've written a reply to the "Beat" magazine to say whatever P.J. puts on record cannot ever be beaten....he is "The Voice"
    Ron
P.S. I reckon Roger is related to late, great comedian Arthur Askey!! LOL! Grin

I sent in a readers letter to "The Beat" magazine for the August issue but it turned out to be so long & to have so many P.J. connections that the editor will probably make an article of it.
   I also sent in a couple of nice photos of P.J. & Mike Pender onstage together a few years ago.
   After I see all of the write ups from the P.J. fans who attend the "Americana Festival" & also the song-listing I'll do as I did for the "Cinderella" concert....pick 'n mix from the text & send in a show review to "The Beat" magazine.

Good for you Ron. What a battler.  How can anyone take Hold Me from PJ, and call it their own?  I think you're right about the connection with Arthur Askey.

I used to like little Arthur Askey & his daughter Anthea. He's hardly ever remembered or mentioned these days.A least in a current TV advert one of his funny old recordings about a busy, busy, busy little bee has been rekindled.
  Harry Worth & Arthur Haynes were also two of my faves & they are almost forgotten too.
