Paul Young


Pop-soul singer, born January 17, 1956, Luton, Bedfordshire, England.
Started out in 'Kool Kat & The Kool Kats' before joining [a=Streetband] who had the quirky hit 'Toast'. He then formed [a=The Q Tips] in 1979 performing over 700 concerts in the 3 years until going solo in 1982. It was third time lucky as the cover of [a=Marvin Gaye]'s "Wherever I Lay My Hat" hit No.1 in 1983, which was followed by the album "No Parlez" and established Paul with worldwide success.

Paul Young's backing band is named [a=The Royal Family], and his backing vocalists are named [a=The Fabulous Wealthy Tarts].

He married [a=Stacey Young] (née Smith) in November 1988.
