Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Cliff Richard 30 Minute Life Story ~ 2003 BBC Interview…..
In September 2013, Sir Cliff Richard confirmed he will be releasing his 100th album this Autumn.
At 72, the evergreen pop star released his debut album in 1959 and has produced 47 studio albums, 35 compilations, 11 live albums and seven film soundtracks.
The new release will feature classic rock ‘n’ roll tracks that were made famous by the likes of Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Buddy Holly.
Alex Belfield @ CelebrityRadio has recorded 5 one hour specials & and many other shorter interviews with Sir Cliff since 2000. This is more than any other journalist in the UK.
In 1958, Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch joined ‘The Drifters’, and by 1959 the band changed their name to ‘The Shadows’. It was also around this time that Cliff made his film debut in ‘Serious Charge’. The film produced the hit ‘Living Doll’, Cliff’s first number one hit.
In 1999, ‘The Millennium Prayer’ reached number one, regardless of no airplay and scathing reviews. Despite a lack of support in the press, Cliff continues to make music and his recent album and DVD release cracked the top twenty.
From 2001 to 2013 Cliff has released a total of nine studio albums (as well as live albums and compilations), with the last being the certified-gold ‘The Fabulous Rock ‘n’ Roll Songbook.
Cliff now divides his time between his homes in the UK, Barbados and Portugal, where he has taken to making his own wine.
