I heard Rick Astley interviewed a little while back and he’s an interesting guy. Unlike most pop stars that moan they got ripped off he said he earned a load of money from his 80s hits and managed his money wisely. So for nearly 30 years he made a few albums for his own enjoyment that basically sold nothing but he wasn’t that concerned as he was having fun (probably earning some Youtube cash from all the Rickrolls too).
Then last year he released one called 50 (because he’s that old now) and it went to No.1 and platinum in the UK and sold loads in Germany too, so he’s back.
He always had a great soul voice.
