IT warms the heart when dis­cern­ing peo­ple recog­nise great­ness.

Such is the case with Les­lie Richard­son ( Let­ters, Septem­ber 21)

when stat­ing, cor­rectly, that Billy Fury was Bri­tain’s first rock ’ n’ roll star. I would add that he is also the best male singer in the his­tory of stand- alone Bri­tish pop per­form­ers.

His ca­reer was sim­i­lar to that of Roy Or­bi­son in that both men also wrote most of their chart ma­te­rial.
