He had further hits with 'Vene Vidi Vice", 'Stars Shine in Your Eyes', 'The Yellow Rose of Texas', and 'Young and Foolish'. In 1956 his 'No Other Love' reached number one (holding Elvis Presley from that position for some weeks), and in 1959 he again reached number one with 'Wonder of You'. With the advent of the 1960s his popularity waned, although he did achieve a million seller in 1965 with 'A Windmill in Old Amsterdam'. He continued to perform in variety shows, although a stroke in 1976 held him back for a while.

He died in Hailsham, East Sussex, on 21st July 2001. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
