P J Proby: “When Hold Me came out, I was sure it was going to be a Miss on JBJ because Dick Haymes was on the panel. I’d done a rock version of his beautiful ballad and when I shook hands with him, I said, ‘I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry.’ I told him afterwards, ‘I can sing ballads, you just haven’t heard me yet.’ He said, ‘I was in the era of crooners and we had to sing like that. You’re with the Beatles now and you’ve done a great job.’ I thought, ‘If the Beatles accept me, if Dick Haymes accepts me, I’ll stick around.”
