Artiestinformatie

Land   Nederland

Rotterdamse groep die in de zomer van 1975 ontstond uit de rockgroep Heart, nadat Patricia Paay — die op de solotoer ging — Heart had verlaten.



De groep werd opgericht door ex-Heartleden Okkie Huysdens, Ton op 't Hof en Mac Sell en ex-Livin' Blueslid Paul Vink. Okkie verliet de groep in 1976 en werd vervangen door Jan Bliek en Wim de Vries.



De eerste single, Seventy-Five, behaalde de negende plaats in de Top 40. De drie daaropvolgende hits bleven buiten de top 10. Na de single Fancy Dancer, die in 1977 verscheen en de hitlijsten niet haalde, ging de groep in 1978 uiteen.

Songtekst

Daddy, daddy grandpa was the leading man
Daddy, daddy grandpa sold us out again
He gave us only words, most of them were lies
The more he cheated, the more he realized

Daddy, daddy grandpa was the leading man

Daddy, daddy grandpa couldn't do a thing but steal
He smiled when he signed a contract, none of them were real
He didn't split the money when he sold a thing
He grabbed it all and then he went

Daddy, daddy grandpa was the leading man

And in the meantime we were growing in fame
It was kind of hard to forget his name
He left a trace in all of our ways
Daddy, daddy grandpa, daddy, daddy grandpa
Daddy, daddy grandpa, daddy, daddy grandpa!

Yeaheaheah!

Daddy, daddy grandpa was not the type to stay
He didn't do his fun shun, it's easy now to say
Sometimes used to change his style, worked, but only for a while
Only one or two of us could take it with a smile

Daddy, daddy grandpa was the leading man
Man, man, man, man!
Daddy, daddy grandpa was the leading man
Ah, ah, ah, ah!

Daddy, daddy grandpa was the leading man
Oh yes, he was
Daddy, daddy grandpa was the leading man
Aha, oho!
