DoB: May 1962
Fact: Colin Has A Love For American Classic Cars!
Favorite Billy Fury Track: Last Night Was Made For Love
Colin Gold was born in May ‘62 at Ashford Middlesex. He attended at Barbara Speak stage school in Acton from the age of 11 and soon joined forces with his brother Mark on keyboards with himself on drums, performing for many years as the “2 g’s” around the club circuit. At the age of 12 they appeared with Frank Carson and Jim Davidson and also starred at the Lakeside Country Club, Frimley Green.
After many years of gigging, Colin threw the towel in on the drums and focused on lead vocal. Then in 1996 he appeared on TV’s “Stars In Their Eyes” as Billy Fury. Two weeks after the show, he received a phone call, asking if he would like to help keep the music and the memory of billy fury alive by performing with Fury’s Tornados. He originally thought that it was one of his friends winding him up, so he hung up. Sure enough the phone rang again and it was Chris Raynor .The rest, as they say is HISTORY.
“Over the past years there are a lot of fond memories and I’ve made a lot of new friends along the way, especially Steve “Shammy” Forward. Who not only drives me to the venues, but comes round my house, sleeps on my sofa, drinks my beer and even now comes on bloody holiday with me and my family”.
Colin would like to thank his wife Beverley June for all the love and support she has provided. They have been married for over 20 years and have 3 children, Ricky,Danny and Reece. Ricky and Danny can be seen at the Billy Fury Story shows as they are the roadcrew,they set up the equiptment and work the sound,lighting and projection throughout the perormances.Then there’s Reece, many people say a clone of Colin, but Reece say’s he has the better voice.
Colin - “I have enjoyed the past 14 years touring the country, and wish to carry on keeping the memory and the music of the great man himself alive with his very own band “Fury’s Tornados.”
Many thanks, Good luck, God bless.
