b. Rueben Klot, 1 April 1923, England, d. 9 December 2000. A popular singer in the UK in the 50s, Burns entered showbusiness straight after demobilization from the RAF in 1945. In the early days he was encouraged by Issy Bonn, and was spotted by Ambrose at the Blue Lagoon Club, and recorded with his Orchestra in 1949. After singing with Jack Nathan’s band at the Coconut Grove and other nightspots such as Selby’s and the Stork Club, he spent some time with Dave Shand’s Orchestra, before signing for Columbia Records in 1953. His early sides included ‘Mother Nature And Father Time’ and ‘Lonely Nightingale’. He had two chart entries in 1955, ‘Mobile’ (written by US songwriters Bob Wells and David Holt) and ‘That’s How A Love Song Was Born’ (composed by the British team of record producer Norman Newell and Philip Green). His other releases during the 50s included ‘Begorrah’, ‘Rags To Riches’, ‘I Can’t Tell A Waltz From A Tango’, ‘Why?’, ‘A Smile Is Worth A Million Tears’, ‘Blue Star’, ‘Wonderful! Wonderful!’, ‘Meanwhile, Back In My Arms’ and ‘Condemned For Life (With A Rock And Roll Wife)’.
