See if you recognize the young man, the lead vocalist, in the video below. If you are a real rock fan, dating back to the 1960's then you probably will. This was one of only a few hits by a band from Northern Ireland -- Them.
That lead singer went on to make quite a name for himself. You probably recognize a very young Van Morrison. One of his first big hits, after leaving Them, was a song called Brown Eyed Girl. It is a staple of oldies radio, especially in the summer.
Morrison's music has aged well and changed. He is still a popular artist today. Some of his other solo hits, more mature perhaps than when he was a youth, include the classic Moondance and this next tune which has been covered by many artists including Rod Stewart.
Van Morrison was inducted into the rock n' roll hall of fame in 1993.
