Charlie Landsborough 16-03-2014


He's been an established music star for 20 years --- but Charlie Landsborough loved marathon gigs and living rough.    The ever popular singer songwriter is set to release a new album featuring some of favourite Beatles songs, and Charlie was playing in Germany when the Fabs did their own Hamburg stint in the early 60s.  They, however were on the brink of superstardom, while he was sleeping in farm barns and earing nothing.    "When I headed off to Dortmund, I only had a few bob in my pocket, and I hoped to earn enough to pay for my wedding when I got home" reveals the Liverpool based star.   "I came home with the same amount I left with, but I did have a big smile on my face and I did get married!"  "Germany was great, although we worked hard, sometimes doing sets for eight hours with just a little break for a beer." "I didn't get to meet the Beatles, but I missed a chance to play on the same stage back home. "They were doing the Tower Ballroom, New Brighton, Wallasey, when they were still the Silver Beetles.   "I was with the Top Spots, and I didn't turn up. Later, I heard a couple of lads say they'd had a fight, so maybe it was just as well!." "But Dortmund was an experience, I'd been there with the army and went back, and everywhere you went British musicians were pretending to be from Liverpool." "I was learning the language, and told a young German lady she was young and beautiful, but it translated as 'cheap and good' I got a slap round the ear and didn't have enough of the language to explain my mistake." "I slept rough in a barn, so I thought it would be luxurious when a band invited me to stay at their place." " It had five beds, but only one had a mattress, if you put the fire on, the room filled with smoke. I went back to the barn. While The Beatles returned to England and stormed the charts, Charlie got married and took up some unusual new work. "I did a bit of navvying" he recalls, "And then I became a school Teacher for 14 years. one day I was digging a road, the next I was a teacher." "It's 20 years since my big hit, 'What colour is the Wind' and must admit having another would terrify me. I did like the attention, it was overwhelming."  "We don't all want to be billionaires and world famous, just to have enough to get by and keep enjoying playing music." His new album, Here, There and everywhere, took him back to those 1960.s days and the most famous band to come from his part of the world. "I've included songs like 'She's leaving home' 'Ticket to Ride' '    here comes the sun' and others, he reveals, but I love Country music, so John Lennon's 'Crippled Inside' is also on there. They were incredible. "To get three great songwriters in the one band is amazing". His love of his city and the Fabs is strong, but Charlie was always keen to stick up for Britain in those post second world war days in Germany.  "When I was there with the army, the older fraternity were pretty hostile" He recalls. "A fellow in our pub had a SS sign stamped on his arm, and I remember a big German policeman with a gun shouting that the British were babies. "With my usual lack of tact, I stood up and said: "If we're such babies how come we beat you?"
