Here's a piece I wrote about Chick & Co. After his brief career dissipated, Chick went to work as, I believe, a manager of a store. Ted Knibbs was run down by a bus and killed. For what it's worth, here is the piece I wrote and I'm pleased to see that fans are interested in the other acts on the Mersey scene, as so much information is already available about the Beatles.
When Ted Knibbs agreed to sign over his act, Billy Kramer & the Coasters (who had recently been voted No. 3 in the Mersey Beat Poll) to Brian Epstein, the Coasters refused to turn professional.

I have been trying for some time now to find a copy of "I Know" by Chick and I can't even see it on YouTube. I bought this single when I was at school and I thought Chick Graham was great for such a young lad when I saw him singing it on the TV and I felt sure he was in for a good career.  I have even written to Brian Matthew on Radio 2 to ask if he knows if it's on a CD but have not had a reply!  ??)

Has anyone got a copy of Chick singing "I Know" that they can put on YouTube please?  Or failing that, get him out of retirement and make a come back on one of the 60s tours as I'm sure he can still sing!  8)
