Today in 1944 Mike Kennedy (Michael Kogel) was born in Germany. He was the singer of ‘Los Bravos’: first Spanish rock band to have a UK and US hit single (‘Black is Black’, 1966, UK no.2 and US no.4). A complete biography about this artist and band can be found everywhere, in Spanish or English.
I have selected a song composed by Harry Vanda and George Young of the Australian band The Easybeats. The song was written for Los Bravos and was released as a single in 1968; it was included in the second film by the Spanish band; later that year another version of the song was released by The Easybeats.
