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).
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.
