Harry Webb

Cliff Richard  (born Harry Webb; 14 October 1940) is a British pop singer, musician, performer, actor and philanthropist.  Richard has sold more than 250 million records worldwide.  He has total sales of over 21 million singles in the United Kingdom and is the third-top-selling artist in UK Singles Chart history, behind the Beatles and Elvis Presley.  (More from Wikipedia)

Before the Beatles came along, Cliff Richard was the leading rock musician in the UK.  Under his real name Harry Webb, he had been the leader of a British rock and roll band called the Drifters (not related at all to the prominent American singing group also called the Drifters); essentially, they were the predecessor band to Cliff Richard and the Shadows
