BOBBY COOKSON


Melbourne singer and guitarist who was with The Premiers before going solo. Bobby Cookson had - as Ian McFarlane puts it - "a powerful Roy Orbison-style voice which made him a popular attraction". Bobby Cookson released nine singles 1961-1965, either solo or with The Premiers. He charted in Melbourne with Flutter Flutter (1961, #20), Timber (1962, #29), I Could Have Loved You So Well (1963, #14) and Rona (1963, #28), all on Astor. His last single was on the new Go!! label, Funny Man (1965), the song that was later a hit in Australia for Ross D. Wylie.
