•  Whitcomb’s single, “You Turn Me On” reached Billboard’s number 8 spot in July 1965. During his summer vacation in 1965, Whitcomb went to America to appear on such television programs as Shindig, Hollywood A Go-Go and American Bandstand. Whitcomb played the Hollywood Bowl with The Beach Boys in 1965 and then toured with The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, and Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs.
“N-Nervous!” Whitcomb’s next release, was recorded in Hollywood, California and reached Billboard’s Top 50. He returned to Dublin for his history finals and received a B.A. degree. In 1966 he turned to early popular song: his version of a 1916 comedy number, “Where Did Robinson Crusoe Go with Friday on Saturday Night?” was a West Coast hit, reviving the ukulele before the emergence of Tiny Tim.
After making four albums for Tower Records and producing Mae West on her album called Great Balls of Fire for MGM Records in 1972, Whitcomb returned to the UK where he began his writing career with After the Ball. He later wrote Tin Pan Alley, A Pictorial History (1919–1939) and a novel, Lotusland: A Story of Southern California. (Wiki)
