5 minutes with… Ricky Valance & Quintessence Films’ Director Robin Toyne

The first Welshman to reach Number 1, Ricky Valance’s life has been defined by one monster hit: Tell Laura I Love Her. But what is like to be known for just one song when personally and professionally you feel you are so much more?  His fans may be aging and the venues may be smaller but, whilst he has his voice, he still takes to the stage 52 years on, determined to dispel the one hit wonder label.

  1. Well done in reaching number one with “Tell Laura I Love Her” it must feel great, and also being the first welshman to reach number one as well. I like the poster that you are holding up in the picture.
