Shane Fenton [Bernard William Jewry] was born 27th Sep ’42,Muswell Hill, London] and later went by Alvin Stardust.
Alvin Stardust, born Bernard William Jewry is an English pop singer and actor. His debut appearance was made at the age of four in pantomime. In the 1960s and unknown band called Shane Fenton and The Fentones sent a demo tape to the BBC in the hope of being picked to appear on TV.
Whilst waiting for a reply Shane Fenton died of rheumatic fever and the band split up before receiving a letter asking them to come and audition at the BBC. Fenton’s mother asked the band to stay together and keep the name of the band in memory of her son. Stardust was a roadie for the band at the time and stepped up to become the new Shane Fenton. The band had a number of UK hits in the 1960s before breaking up.
He was featured as a solo act in Photo-Cast 1963/64 but toured with the Fentons.
