The Fortunes were one of the many British Invasion groups to have hits everywhere. The members were Glen Dale Garforth and Barry Pritchard (vocals, guitars), David Carr (keyboards), Rod Allen Bainbridge (bass) and Andy Brown(drums). Pritchard died of heart failure on 1/11/1999 (age 54). Bainbridge died of liver cancer on 1/10/2008 (age 63).
While they only appeared on the Billboard charts in North America a total of six times, they were very significant singles. Next week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents The Fortunes with two of their hits songs for your votes. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either You've Got Your Troubles or Here It Comes Again. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
