Michael Holliday

Born Michael Milne (changed by Deed Poll from Miller) on 26th November 1928 in Liverpool.  

Michael Holliday had a method of crooning that was heavily influenced by Bing Crosby; although his overall style was probably closer to that of Perry Como.

His career peaked during the late 1950s at a time when it was common for multiple cover versions of the same song to be released.

In fact much of his recorded output, in common with other British MOR artists, were covers of American songs.

He was also a popular TV performer. Sadly, despite his popularity as a performer, his chart presence was erratic and the 1960s brought a long series of failures.

Michael Holliday died from a drugs overdose on 29th October 1963, at Croydon, Surrey.
