Brian Connolly interv. – 19761000

October of 1976 – Star Horoscope  Show
on Radio Luxembourg 208 –
Glam-rock Star Brian Connolly (The Sweet) :

19761000 Brian Connolly (Sweet) interv. (08.35)

Brian Francis Connolly (5 October 1945 – 10 February 1997)
was a Scottish singer-songwriter, musician and actor,
best known as the lead singer between 1968 and 1979
of the British glam rock band The Sweet .

At the age of 12, Connolly moved to Harefield, Greater London,
where he attended the local secondary modern school.
In his mid-teens he joined the Merchant Navy, and got a
tiger’s head tattooed on his right arm during his Navy service.
On his discharge from the Merchant Navy in 1963 he returned
to Harefield and played in a number of local bands, including
Generation X from mid-1965 until about October 1966.
The group recorded four tracks but these were not commercially released.
The lineup featured Connolly on vocals,
Chris Eldridge and Lee Mordecai on guitars,
Mark Conway (bass)
and drummer Martin Lass.
Connolly eventually replaced singer Ian Gillan (later of Deep Purple fame)
in a band called Wainwright’s Gentlemen, which included drummer Mick Tucker.
Tucker and Connolly left Wainwright’s Gentlemen in late 1967 and recruited
guitarist Frank Torpey, and bassist Steve Priest, naming their new band The Sweetshop.

On the eve of releasing their debut single, Slow Motion, in July 1968,
the band shortened their name to The Sweet.
They recorded a further three unsuccessful singles; Andy Scott joined
the line-up in late 1970, just before the release of their first hit single “Funny, Funny”.
After this, Connolly was propelled into the limelight, with many appearances
on Top of the Pops, with the other members of the Sweet.

In 1974, Connolly was badly beaten after leaving a nightclub in Staines where he
received several kicks to his throat resulting in his being unable to sing for some time
and permanently losing some of his vocal range.
This event also meant the band missed out on supporting
The Who at Charlton Athletic Football Ground.
Several songs on the Sweet Fanny Adams album had to
be sung by other members of the band.

As time progressed issues between Connolly and other members of Sweet
developed and he would find the band excluding him from decisions.
Brian developed a significant problem with alcoholism in the mid-1970s.
During 1977, when no tours were undertaken and two of Sweet’s most successful albums
were recorded, the power struggle within the band became even more apparent.
Brian’s alcohol abuse further compromised his role with the band as his voice began
showing the impact in recordings and on stage during Sweet’s 1978 US tour.
He played his last British show with the classic Sweet line-up at Hammersmith Odeon,
London on 24 February 1978.
His final live performance with the band was in July 1978 in Florida,
USA when they supported Alice Cooper.
His departure was not made public until March 1979.
