With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“Baby, it’s amazing just how wonderful it is, that the things we like to do are just the same” May 15, 2015

As regular readers will know I am a 70s music fan. So I am always interested in 70s music trivia, particularly if it involves the UK charts. I was pleased to read a little bit of trivia that I don’t believe I have published before. There is only one British act who had at least one UK top 50 hit in every year of the 70s from 1970 to 1979. That band was Hot Chocolate. I haven’t been able to verify the next one but I understand Elvis Presley also achieved at least one top 50 UK hit for every year of the 70s.  Diana Ross almost made it, as she only missed the UK top 50 in 1972. Do you know of any other artists who have done this?
