THE THUNDERBIRDS With Paul WÜRGES (1964)









Paul Würges

German Rock 'n Roll guitarist, singer, composer and bandleader. Nickname: "German Bill Haley". He came in touch with electric guitars through American soldiers that were based in Munich after WW II. He soon started to perform regularly with his first band, the Bavarian Playboys. In the Mid-Fivties he first formed the Moonglow Combo which merged into the Rocking Allstars. Soon he was known as one of Germany's best guitarists and played with professionals like Ambros Seelos. He toured with Max Greger and Ernst Jäger through Europe and recorded his own records for Ariola. 1964, he played at the Olympic Games in Innsbruck and scored his first big hit "Olympic Nights". Later, R'n'R got replaced by Beat music, so he performed under his alias "Cliff Jackson and the Star-Beaters". After sixty years in show business, he still is not tired to perform on Munichs stages.

Everyone who knows the blog "Old Melodies" or earlier "Wings of Dream" for many years,knows that there are large archives of music here since 2007 ... 98% of the links up to 2015 are dead. I will gradually be engaged in their recovery. This takes a very long time, so the answers to requests will be minimal and in no way will be accepted from anonymous users. I spend a very long time on my uploads. Please,find a couple of seconds to sign your comment or message. I hope for understanding...
