Whatever Happened To… Rick Astley?

Browse & purchase this albumIt Would Take a Strong Strong Man – Rick Astley (1988)
This English singer-songwriter started out singing in church choir and playing drums in a band before he made his breakthrough as a solo artist. After only four studio albums, Astley retired from the music industry in 1993 in order to focus on raising a family. But Astley continued to work at his home studio, and he returned with a come-back album in 2002, followed by a well-received tour in 2004. His latest studio album came out in 2005, and Astley headlined a tour of 80’s acts before the internet phenomenon “Rick-rolling” made him a household name for another generation. Astley has since become a radio personality in the UK, but has also continued to record and perform music. His latest single, released on his own label, came out in October.
