Brian Poole Overview

Brian Poole was lead vocalist for The Tremeloes, an English beat group founded in Essex in 1958 that is still active today. Like the Beatles, the band combined rock and roll with a variety of other genres. Brian was chosen to be lead singer by the band for the somewhat arbitrary reason that he was deemed to have the most appropriate look (he wore glasses similar to those worn by the group’s idol Buddy Holly). The band was formed whilst its members were all still pupils at Park Modern School in Barking. They recorded as backing musicians for other artists but it wasn’t until 1962 that they had the chance to record under their own name. Brian Poole and the Tremeloes’ first big hit was with their cover of The Isley Brothers’ ‘Twist and Shout’, followed by a number 1 hit with The Contours’ ‘Do You Love Me’. Other covers of Roy Oribson’s ‘Candy Man’ and Crickets’ B-side ballad ‘Someone Someone’ entered the UK Singles Chart Top Ten.
