The Hollies in 1967

Did you know that from the 1960s – mid 70s, The Hollies had more hits than the Beatles? And now they are back together and performing on QVC this Friday!

The Hollies are: Tony Hicks (lead guitar and vocals), Ray Stiles (bass and vocals), Ian Parker (keyboard), Peter Howarth (lead vocals), Steve Lauri (guitar and vocals) and Bobby Elliott (drums).

The Hollies today At the heart of the band since 1963 are the two original members Tony Hicks and Bobby Elliott. In 2004 the sudden death of Carl Wayne, who had been the band's front man for almost five years, shocked and saddened everyone. Peter Howarth then stepped in to beccme the new lead singer.

The Hollies have notched up over thirty top 30 hits since 1963 and were on the BBC's very first edition of Top Of The Pops on New Year's Day in 1964, when the show was transmitted from a converted church in Manchester.


Since 2005, the band has been hard at work recording an album of brand new songs and we're excited to have them singing on Friday 10th December at 9am and 4pm.

    I’ll look forward to seeing this. I have the Hollies greatest hits in my car at the moment! As a teen I was a fan of Jimmy Saville’s record club where in the ’80’s he played the eqivalent chart of the 60’s, so I got to know a lot of ’60’s era music at the same time as ’80’s stuff and still enjoy it all today.
    Oh go on, give us a rendition of Jennifer Eccles! “white chalk written on red brick…”

    I love Gasoline Alley, The Air that I breathe and of course, He ain’t heavy (he’s my brother) which always reminds me of my brother who was the one who “carried” me and my siblings as children. Unfortunately he passed away in 2003. He was also a great guitar player and often played the song.
    Have a cassette of the Hollies greatest hits but definitely want to update my collection. Will be looking forward to seeing them on Friday.

    I went to see The Hollies last month in Edinburgh and they were brilliant! Peter Howarth is excellent as lead singer and front man and is quite charismatic, Tony still looks good, and so young for late 60s! They are all superb musicians and I hope they’ll be back in Edinburgh in 2011.

    I still like the Hollies’ music after all these years at the drop of a hat. They’re great role models as well.
