YouTube Star Taylor Hatala Talks "Anaconda" Fame, 'Ellen' and Why Dance is Only the Beginning By Maria Sherman Beatrice Hazlehurst 06 September Many consider Internet fame the fastest track to success, and while its instantaneous reach is certainly an easier route to rustle up 15 minutes, many struggle to turn a couple of viral videos into a full-fledged career. For year-old Taylor Hatala, it's hard work and endless positivity that has allowed her dance vids to bring her to new professional heights. After racking up millions of views on YouTube after a dance class with her choreographer was filmed, Hatala parlayed the Internet's fascination with her moves into a successful television career, including appearances on Ellen, America's Got Talent and other television programs. She's also performed at the BET Awards with Chris Brown and has gone on tour with Janet Jackson and kickstarted an acting and modeling career—all before entering high school.
Walker is best remembered, however, for the two years he spent helming Savoy Brown, truly the most explosive British blues band of the early s, a band that elevated itself to mega-success on the U. Over the next two years, the group released the albums Shake Down and Getting To The Point, making a lot of friends in the process.
And when Raw Sienna, their fourth album, arrived in Aprilit raised the temperature even higher. Yet, while fans and critics acclaimed it a masterpiece, the band itself was in disarray as Youlden departed for a solo career.
The Departed It was a blow from which few bands could be expected to recover.
Blues was fading out. I was developing my songwriting, But, I think the rest of the band were getting more into the big heavy rock thing.
With Lonesome Dave taking over lead vocals, Savoy Brown went straight back into the studio to record Looking In, a behemoth of an album blessed, incidentally, with one of the most memorable LP sleeves of the age, a troglodyte-like savage staring into one of the eye sockets of a monstrous, overgrown skull.
Again, the critics were unanimous; Savoy Brown had delivered another classic. And, again, they spoke too soon. Just months after the release of Looking In, the group completely shattered.
Peverett, bassist Tone Stevens and drummer Roger Earl all departed to form a new band of their own, Foghat; Simmonds was left alone to piece together the next generation of Savoy Brown. The true revelation, though, was vocalist Dave Walker, a hitherto unknown diamond mined from the Birmingham club circuit.
He was a rock and roller at heart, dedicated to the primal screams of Jerry Lee Lewis, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran and all, but even in his teens, onstage with his first band, the Redcaps, his performance took things to the next level.
Walker joined the Redcaps as rhythm guitarist in earlygraduating to the microphone when original vocalist Ronnie Brown quit.
Lining up now with guitarists Mick Blythe and Roy Brown, bassist Mike Walker, drummer Alan Morley and saxophonist Mac Broadhurst, the Redcaps were snapped up by Decca around the same time as the company grabbed the similarly styled Rolling Stones; there was even talk, Walker recalls, of the label placing their publicity in the hands of Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham.
It would probably have helped a lot. While the Stones soared straight out of the blocks, the Redcaps foundered.
Walker moved onto Beckett, Birmingham superstars who sadly, and strangely, never made their way out of the local circuit. They folded, unrecorded, inwhen Walker took on the unenviable task of replacing Jeff Lynne in the Idle Race another late 60s Birmingham legend, of courseafter the maestro quit to join the Move.
This lineup of the Idle Race recorded a new album their thirdbut their fame spread no further than Latin America.
