#383 Wayne Fontana / Simon Brett – 28 October 1945

Wayne Fontana

Wayne Fontana (born Glyn Geoffrey Ellis, 28 October 1945, Manchester, Lancashire) is an English pop singer. In 1962, he formed his group, Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders and got a recording contract. He remained under contract to Fontana Records after parting with The Mindbenders. However, Fontana got his stage name from Elvis Presley’s drummer D. J. Fontana, rather than his record label.

Simon Brett

Simon Brett (born 28 October 1945 in Worcester Park, Surrey, England) is a prolific writer of whodunnits. Brett has written three series of detective novels. Most of these novels are in the “Golden Age” tradition of detective fiction, entertaining the reader through humour, eccentric characters, and intricate plot twists. He has also written several mystery plays and some non-series novels.
