Chris Rea

Chris Rea

Although Chris Rea might have entered the music scene relatively late -- he didn't buy his first guitar until he was 22 -- he immediately made up for lost time, joining the band Magdalene in 1973. He later formed Beautiful Losers, through which he was able to secure a solo record contract with Magnet Records. His first single was "So Much Love," released in 1974.

In June 1978, Rea's debut album Whatever Happened to Benny Santini? hit the shelves. It contained the single "Fool (If You Think It's Over)," which remains his biggest hit today. Although it was immensely popular in the US, peaking at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the song did not enjoy the same level of popularity in the UK.

Unfortunately, Rea's career would stagnate over the next few years. His second and third albums did not produce any more hits and the record company lost interest in promoting him, titling his fourth album a simple and dismal "Chris Rea." Ironically, they released his raw demo tapes as his fifth album which found success in Ireland and mainland Europe. Rea focused his touring efforts accordingly and built up a strong fanbase that devoured his concerts and bought his next two albums eagerly.

In 2001, Rea was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The work he produced afterwards, in which he returned to his blues roots and recorded an eleven CD collection of 137 songs, was critically lauded. In 2005 he announced his retirement from solo albums, preferring to focus on working with his favorite artists. However, in November 2007, Rea announced the launch of a new album about a 1950s instrumental group called The Delmonts. He began touring across Europe again.
