When the crowd ripped up the seats in Dublin’s Carlton Cinema in 1956 in what was the first Rock ‘n’ Roll riot in Europe, in the audience was Dickie Rock – a young lad from Cabra who would go on to become a legend in his own lifetime.

In 1963 Dickie went professional with The Miami Showband and continued on to become one of Ireland’s most successful recording artists ever with a run of 25 hits from 1963 to 1983. Dickie represented Ireland in the 1966 Eurovision Song Contest with a Roland Soper song ‘Come Back to Stay’. After a magnificent performance and a respectable fourth place, the song remains a firm favourite with his fans almost 44 years later. Even after all this time, the people’s favourite son cannot leave the stage without performing ‘Come Back to Stay’ and all his number one singles including ‘There’s Always Me’ (1963), ‘I’m Yours’ (1964), ‘From the Candy Store on the Corner’ (1964), ‘Every Step of the Way’ (1965), ‘Wishing it was You’ (1965), ‘Simon Says’ (1968) and so many more. His most recent album, ‘Dickie Rock Sings Contemporary Irish Classic Hits’ was released to great acclaim in September 2007 and still receives considerable airplay from top Irish DJs.
