Gilbert O’Sullivan Biography (Wikipedia)

Gilbert O'Sullivan (born Raymond Edward O'Sullivan, 1 December 1946) is an Irish singer-songwriter, best known for his early 1970s hits "Alone Again (Naturally)", "Clair", and "Get Down". The music magazine Record Mirror voted him the top UK male singer of 1972.

Worldwide he has charted 16 top-40 records, including six #1 songs, the first of which was 1970's "Nothing Rhymed". Such was his popularity in the early 1970s that "Matrimony", an airplay and live favourite from his debut album Himself, remains one of his most famous compositions despite only having been a hit single in the Netherlands where it reached #4.

His most successful recording period was between 1970 and 1980, though he has since recorded ten studio albums up to 2015. Speaking in 2009 he said, "I write pop songs. End of story. That's all I wanted to do. That's all I want to do. And that's all I continue to want to do. I have no interest in just touring, and living in the past."
