Rubettes 1 Month ago  
This made laugh. I thought this shit was done and dusted years ago.

I saw Bill Hurd's Rubettes with Paul Da Vinci and it was a great night out. Then I saw Andy William's Rubettes a weeks after. Andy made sure the audience was his Rubettes.

Weren't the Rubettes just sessions staff thrown together ?

I have no idea whom is in Showaddywaddy these days, the line up seems to change every year a part from Romeo Challenger on drums.

For me "The" Rubette is the falsetto man (Paul somebody?) who provided the best intro of all time, even if he never featured again.

For sure it was session players with Paul da Vinci providing the lead voice for a standard session fee. When the record became a hit Wayne Bickerton put together a working band but da Vinci was not involved.

For some reason I always called him Bickerstaff. Is he still with us?

Thank you for clarifying.

When Paul Da Vinci sang for Bill Hurd's Rubettes he was fantastic. Alan William's Rubettes had more energy but Sugar Baby Love sounded shit. I still listen to their last 70s albums: Still Unwinding and Sometime In Oldchurch.
