Frankie Price

aka Frankie Rowles, Wally Rowles

Wally Rowles may have looked like his brother John, but he wanted to make it under his own name – so he started his music career under the name Frankie Price.

No one was fooled, especially as his break came in 1968 when he accepted an Entertainer of the Year award on behalf of John, and as an afterthought sang his brother’s hit ‘Hush Not a Word to Mary’.
