One of the most seriously underrated talents in Pop Music history. While most 1960's boffins know his song "Runaway", there's a whole 30 years worth of amazing music from this man. With his incredible voice complete with trademark falsetto and of course his fantastic songwriting, what is there not to like with this guy. If you like Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles etc - Del is much recommended!
