Peter Lee Stirling

Thanks to Colin Timmins plus a mystery visitor who spoke to Larry Page, I have now been able to talk to Peter. My typical sense of timing.... search for 2 years and when I call he's in the bath. HUGE respect to those who helped and watch out for a mini bio from Peter soon.

Best remembered as a songwriter (with The Merseybeats' I Think Of You and Don't Turn Around among his credits), Peter Lee Stirling from Birmingham fronted The Bruisers in the mid-sixties and then recorded a string of solo pop singles. He continued to write and record into the seventies and later changed his name to Daniel Boone enjoying UK hits with Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast (No 17) and Beautiful Sunday (No 21) on the Penny Farthing label. In the seventies he was a member of Hungry Wolf
