Friday Night Forgotten Oldie

July 20, 1969

Nearly four years before Neil Armstrong’s famous feat, 20-year old British singer Jonathan King released a hit record that would sell over 4 million copies.


King eventually discovered Peter Gabriel and the other members of the rock band Genesis. He developed other groups like 10cc. After seeing the second night of The Rocky Horror Show, King so thought it had potential that he invested £20,000 in the production. He also identified and promoted Chumbawamba's anthem "Tubthumping," and recorded the first studio version of "Who Let the Dogs Out,” before persuading his friend Steve Greenberg to record it with the Baha Men.

In 2001, King was convicted of sexually molesting five boys, each aged 14 to 16. He was released on parole in March 2005, despite having declined to participate in programs designed at behavioral correction because he considered himself not guilty. Being on the Sex Offender Register, King is banned from working with anybody under 18. Now 69, King maintains his innocence.
