Nigel Benson Am currently seeking information on Nigel Benson beat music columnist for The Evening Express [Aberdeen, Scotland] 1946-65. Here are samples of his work from that period.
Albert Bonici managed various groups besides his boy bands. The Modells were one of the groups he promoted when male beat bands were dominating the pop charts.
Although other professional journalist wrote about the popular music scene for their perspective newspaper’s entertainment section, Nigel Benson had a regular column chronicling the beat scene in the north of Scotland [1964-6]. There were also cheaply produced music magazines geared for teenagers looking to see new groups on the scene.
