Luton born, Young kicked off his career in music as the lead singer for band Kat Kool & The Kool Kats before moving on to Streetband who broke the Top 20 once with their novelty song Toast in the late seventies. Streetband would evolve into the band Q-Tips after recruiting additional members and many line-up changes and would receive press praise for their tracks SYSLJFM (The Letter Song) and Having A Party.
When Q-Tips split in 1982 Young was quickly signed by Columbia Records for a solo career and soon shot to #1 with his cover of Marvin Gaye’s Wherever I Lay My Hat, with follow up single Come Back And Say hitting #4 and the a re-release of the previously unsuccessful cover of John Hurley’s Love Of The Common People which hit #2 the second time around and enjoyed airplay in America.
His appeal lasted throughout the decade and beyond hitting #8 in the charts with his cover of Oh Girl by The Chi-Lites and performing before the England semi-final match against Germany during Euro 1996.
