GUEST,Acorn4 Del Shannon, info & thoughts (35) RE: Del Shannon, info & thoughts 18 Feb 08

I seem to recall that Del's real name was Charles Westover.

I think he probably suffered a bit from the fact that he had his greatest success with "Runaway" early on in his career, and despite the fact that he wrote some really good songs subsequently, everything was inevitably a bit of an anti-climax.

is really interesting about how "Runaway" was made.
