20 Hugely Popular Musicians Who Haven't Gotten Famous in America (Yet)

Voici un article intéressant sur vingt grands artistes qui n'ont pas réussi une carrière identique aux Etats-Unis. CLIFF y est cité en numéro 1. Je vous le laisse découvrir en anglais.

For fifty years, Cliff Richard has been one of the United Kingdom's most cherished musicians: He's won virtually every British music award and honor in existence, he's been knighted and there are 14 Number One singles under his belt. John Lennon once said of Richard, "I think the first English record that was anywhere near anywhere was 'Move It' by Cliff Richard, and before that there'd been nothing." (The Beatles even had a little rivalry with Cliff Richard and his Shadows early in the Fab Four's career.) Everyone from Mick Jagger to Freddie Mercury has sung the praises and championed the impact Richard had on music. It's perplexing that an English language artist can be so popular for so long in the U.K but not here. Richard's biggest U.S. hit came in 1976 with "Devil Woman" which peaked at Number Six on the Billboard Hot 100.

ET POURTANT, dès les années 60, Cliff était accueilli en triomphe à NEW-YORK!

We Don't talk anymore fut 7è dans le Billboard Hot 100 en 79. Cliff étant le "pendant" anglais d'Elvis, il lui était quasiment impossible de faire carrière aux USA. Aujourd'hui comme ce fut souvent le cas, SCR enregistre son nouvel album avec les meilleurs musiciens de Nashville.
