Billy Ocean walked away from his career at the peak of his fame in , but he's back with the new album 'One World' and a message of hope. I was from one hotel to one hotel to another country, flying here, flying there. In the meantime, my kids are growing up. The jet-set life of a rock star was a long way from the tiny Caribbean island of Trinidad where Ocean born Leslie Sebastian Charles grew up in the Fifties. I never understood the lyrics, but the melodies meant so much to me. His family moved to the England in and settled in the East London town of Romford when Ocean was just The U. By the time he was a teenager, London was the epicenter of the pop-music universe and he soaked it all in like a sponge. Throughout the late Sixties and into the Seventies, he played in various bands around London and even released a handful of singles, but none of them gained any traction and by he was working at a Ford factory.

Billy Ocean is the biggest selling black recording star Britain has ever produced and has sold over 30 million records in his lifetime to date. Having achieved extraordinary success as both an artist and a songwriter, Billy has collected multiple Gold and Platinum records across the world and hit the number one spot worldwide in the pop charts including the USA, Australia, Germany, Holland, and the UK. This year Billy celebrated the 35th year anniversary of his ground-breaking album, 'Suddenly'.
W hen Michael Jackson released his Thriller video in December it was a year zero for presenting pop music — a minute short film directed by John Landis, with higher production values than most horror blockbusters of the day — including his own cult classic An American Werewolf In London. The video is one of the most iconic pop culture artefacts of the 80s, and if you were to close your eyes and think of MJ, that red leather jacket will block out everything else. But Loverboy is the Plan 9 From Outer Space of 80s pop video excess, a glorious sci-fi folly that should go straight onto your rollover session YouTube playlist. Instead, the director turns it into an intergalactic fish out of water tale, with ray gun shootouts, an alien damsel in distress, Billy Ocean dancing in a Superman II-style prism and some space alien reprobates they probably got from the skip outside the Doctor Who studios. We first meet a masked knight galloping on horseback along a beach exotically shot in Dorset. GoatMan hits the bar, edging past some low-rent googly eye Jawas, cyborgs with TVs for heads and a warthog in a sailor suit. Maybe inspired by the squealing processed guitar solo or the strong BarBot liquor, GoatMan stops propping up the bar and activates his real mission — to rescue the Dark Crystal damsel. Maybe off his box on intergalactic dust. Billy never fully explored his intergalactic space opera ideas — his video for Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car features some dodgy animated fish when his car fills up with water, and in the video for When the Going Gets Tough… he does actually have the three-quarter length silver-grey suit jacket.
