Britain is a country where old men remember Eden Kane

In a nostalgic frame of mind I went back to the 1960's and remembered Eden Kane.
Things you didn't know about Eden, he :

* was born Richard Graham Sarstedt in 1941 in Delhi, India.

* first created some interest with an advertising jingle for Cadbury's, called 'Hot Chocolate Crazy', which was issued as a single by Pye Records.

* had his only 'number one' hit in the UK Singles Chart with 'Well I Ask You'.

* has a brother, Peter Sarstedt, who got to number one himself in 1969, with 'Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)'

* has another brother, Clive, who the British Top 3 in 1976 with his cover rendition of the old Hoagy Carmichael song, 'My Resistance Is Low'

* he and all the Sarstedt brothers are still active in the music industry and have toured the UK several times with the 'Solid Gold Rock and Roll' tours.
