Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth interview with Gilbert O’Sullivan, Legendary Singer / Songwriter

 

About Harvey's guest:

 

Today’s special guest, Gilbert O’Sullivan, is a music superstar.  He was Ireland’s first international pop music star, and he became a global phenomenon in the 70s with his classic hit song, “Alone Again, Naturally”, which stayed at #1 in America for 6 weeks and earned him 3 Grammy Award nominations.  

 

He’s charted 16 top 40 records, including six No. 1 songs.  Some of my favourites are “Nothing Rhymed”, “Clair”, “Get Down”, “Out of the Question”, “Why Oh Why Oh Why”, “What’s in a Kiss”, “So What”, “Tomorrow, Today”, and one of my all-time favourites, his wonderful duet with Peggy Lee, “Can’t Think Straight”.   For over 5 decades he’s been writing hit songs in his signature style.  

 

He's recorded 20 studio albums and released 8 compilation albums.  And he’s been performing sold-out concerts not only in his native Ireland, but throughout the UK and around the world.  Record Mirror Magazine voted him the top UK male singer of 1972, and he’s received 3 Ivor Novello Awards, including "Songwriter of the Year" in 1973.  His 2 most recent albums, entitled “Gilbert O’Sullivan” and “Driven”, have been highly acclaimed by music critics, and they hit the top 20 and the top 30 in the UK charts.   Those 2 albums, along with his 3-CD compilation released last year, entitled, “Gilbert O’Sullivan: The Best Of” have ignited a global renaissance in his career, and a whole new generation of fans around the world are falling in love with his music.   

 

He’s just completed a sold out tour in Japan, AND NOW, he’s returning to the United States over the Thanksgiving weekend for an exclusive 3-city concert tour.  

 

Our guest will be at The Canyon House in Mesa, Arizona on November 22nd.  On November 24, he’ll be performing at the Swedish American Hall in San Francisco.  And on November 25, he’ll be headlining at the legendary Troubadour in West Hollywood, California.
