Popular British singer and entertainer of the 1960s.

Born in Lincolnshire and beginning his career as a session guitarist, Brown appeared in support of legendary performers such as Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent . In 1960, he formed his own backing group, the Bruvvers. His cheeky image and spiky blond hair made him a well-known face on radio and television even though his hit records were relatively few, the best known being What a Crazy World We're Living in and Picture of You (both 1962). He went on to appear in films, pantomime and stage musicals, notably Charlie Girl in the West End. He also presented his own children's television series on BBC.

In 1972, Brown formed another band, Brown's Home Brew, which played mainly country music and featured his wife, Vicki Brown, who died of cancer in 1991. Their daughter, Sam Brown, is also a singer.

This is an extraordinary rarity - Joe Brown at the very beginning of his career, signing a fan's autograph album page (3" x 2") in 1958, at the age of 17 when he was playing guitar as a member of the Spacemen skiffle group. And he signed as Joey Brown. Was this the very first time he was asked for his autograph? Could be! In good condition.
