My song was rejected by multiple record companies, before
it was heard by dick clark, who released it by his
company swan records.

Dick clark suggested I add multiple "whoo!"s in the song, it would become
my trademark sound.

The song would reach number 6 on billboard hot 100,
it was my first of 22 songs that made it on the billboard chart.

The president of swan records recommend a stage name for me,
I'm still known by this name today.

I also got a nickname around the same period,
It came from the thumping power of my songs.

In 1962 chuck barris wrote a song about a new jersey amusement park,
I recorded the song and it was published by swan.

It would be the most successful song of my career, reaching number 3
on the billboard chart.

My cover of the 1922 song "way down yonder in new Orleans" would
sale over 1 million records.

Although my popularity faded in the us in the early 60s,
i would have success touring in Britain.

Well, I guessed about that much last night. Smile I'm having difficulty grasping at a name for this one.

Big tops singer alex chilton had a portrait of me in his home.

The amusement park I sang about closed in 1971, it
was known as palisades park.

I still Occasionally perform, and write music, most recently in 2016,
when I released "svengoolie stomp".

If no one gets it in a few hour I'll give the answer.

Quick note, there's competing sources for this persons birth year,
some say 1936 some say 1940. Not sure which is correct.

Svengoolie ... probably the only TV show worth watching on a Saturday night!

The person is Freddy "boom boom" cannon.
Who was pretty popular in the late 50s before the Beatles.

I came in at the end of this thread and thought Fedora is really famous. On Dick Clark's a million times! And so modest on my thread!

Do you want to go again, Fedora? Or does someone else want to jump in?

OK, I'll do it.

I was born in London on 31 January, 1956.

My parents were working-class emigrants from Ireland who moved into a two-room Victorian flat in an impoverished area of north London.

As the eldest of four brothers, I had to look after my siblings due to my mother's regular illnesses. I belonged to a local gang of neighborhood children and would often end up in fights with other groups.

At the age of seven, I contracted spinal meningitis and spent a year in hospital. This left me with a permanent spinal curvature.

I disliked secondary school, and at age 14 or 15, I began to fight back at what I saw as the oppressive nature of the school teachers, who I felt encouraged the children to all be the same.

I thought I was alone in my thinking great to know great minds think alike!

You said it, Hypnoman1!

As a teenager, I listened to rock bands like Hawkwind, Captain Beefheart, Alice Cooper, and the Stooges, as well as more mainstream acts such as T. Rex and Gary Glitter.

While at college, I squatted in a Hampstead area house with a group of ageing hippies. I supported myself by working on building sites.

My friends and I frequented many London clubs, including reggae and gay clubs. We enjoyed the latter because "you could be yourself, nobody bothered you there.”
