Chris Norman Career
Norman started at St. Bede’s Grammar School, where he was to meet Alan Silson and Terry Uttley, future members of Smokie. He was influenced by the new era of groups such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones and then folk singers, Bob Dylan, Norman and Silson began meeting up and spent nearly all their spare time learning new songs on their guitars.
Between 1974 and the early 1980s, Smokie enjoyed success touring all over the world, but the strain and pressure of constantly being away from home and family were beginning to tell on Norman. By the early 1980s, he decided to spend more time writing and working in the studio.
Norman and Spencer now worked together on songs for other artists including hits for Kevin Keegan (“Head Over Heels in Love”, a No. 31 UK hit), and the England football team song “This Time (We’ll Get It Right)”. He also worked with Agnetha Fältskog (on her solo album), Racey (co-writer of “Baby It’s You”), Donovan (backing vocals on Donovan), and Heavy Metal Kids.
