Personal Quote:

[on the origin of his stage name] It started off as Elvin Starr, because they wanted a kind of rocky, country name. But [a woman] who was doing promotion for us said it wasn't "glam-rocky" enough, so it became Stardust and then Alvin.


Playing "The Child Catcher" in the UK Touring production of musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. See more »
