The Long Lunch

A Shark With A Good Heart


Irish singer Feargal Sharkey is 61 on the 13th of August.

Feargal joined rock band The Undertones in 1975 and went solo when the band broke up in '83.

His first solo single Listen To Your Father was a minor hit while his third single A Good Heart was a worldwide Number One.

The follow up You Little Thief went Top 10 around the world but further releases could match the success of these two hits.

In the early 90's he moved into the business side of the music industry and in 2011 he became head of UK Music.
