Gerry & The Pacemakers Overview

Gerry & The Pacemakers were a British beat music group prominent during the 1960s. They were the first act to reach number one in the UK Singles Chart with their first three single releases. Gerry Marsden formed the group in 1959 with his brother, Fred, Les Chadwick and Arthur McMahon. The group's original name was Gerry Marsden and the Mars Bars, but they were forced to change this, when the Mars Company, producers of the chocolate Mars Bar, complained.

The band began recording in early 1963 with "How Do You Do It?", a song written by Mitch Murray which became a number one hit in the UK, the first by an Epstein Liverpool group to achieve this on all charts. Gerry and the Pacemakers' next two singles, Murray's "I Like It" and Rodgers and Hammerstein's "You'll Never Walk Alone", both also reached number one in the UK Singles Chart, the latter becoming the signature tune of Liverpool Football Club.
