Michael Holliday







Michael Holliday was a British singer popular in the late 1950s and early 1960s, who sang so similar style to Bing Crosby and Perry Como that it was easy to confuse them.

Born in Liverpool, he had a string of chart hits in the pre-Beatles era in the UK, including two number one singles, "The Story of My Life" and "Starry Eyed".

Holliday's life is detailed in a 2004 biography by Ken Crossland, titled The Man Who Would Be Bing.

Holliday suffered from stage fright and had a nervous breakdown in 1961; he committed suicide two years later, October 29, 1963.

    Oh yes! I remember him well.
    Voice like smooth dark chocolate.

    He brought the story of his own life to a very sad and abrupt end, much to the dismay of his many fans.
