#Fact
1His debut entry in the UK Singles Chart was the Johnny Worth - who worked as a songwriter under his pen-name, Les Vandyke Vandyke - penned "The River's Run Dry", which went to No. 41 in June 1962. In 1963, he participated in A Song for Europe, the UK heat of the Eurovision Song Contest, with another Vandyke penned song, "A Day at the Seaside".The next few years proved fallow as a succession of single releases failed to chart.
2He is best known for his recording of the Rodgers and Hammerstein show tune "Edelweiss" (1967) which reached No.2 on the UK Singles Chart (staying on the chart for 17 weeks).
3After completing his military service he toured with a musical called Florodora, and he then became a singer with the Teddy Foster's Band, a big band based in London.
4Although known mainly for his voice Hill was also a songwriter and composed many songs with his musical director Ernie Dunstall. These were used on his studio albums and flip sides to his singles of the day. The Dunstall-Hill composition 'Why Or Where Or When', was also notably recorded by Mr. Lee Grant and topped the New Zealand charts in 1968 and 'I Never Did As I Was Told' was covered by Broadway star Robert Goulet in 1971.
5In 1990, Hill took the stage to play Ivor Novello in the stage play, My Dearest Ivor.
6Hill first sang professionally in a public house called The Prospect in Margate, Kent, when he was fifteen years old.
7In April 2012, Hill came out of semi-retirement to make a successful return to the stage for 'one night only' where he performed in a big band night at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club. Vince recalls "It was an absolute success - we sold out and I got a standing ovation. At that point, I just thought, 'I've finished, that'll do for me'.".
8From the eighties onwards, Hill concentrated mainly on his live performances and continued to play all the top venues around the world as well as appearing on cruise ships.
9Hill also wrote the stage musical, Zodiac. Hill's stage acting continued thereafter and notably included a starring role as the cowardly lion in an adaptation of the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of 'The Wizard Of Oz'.
10His first lucky break as a singer came when he read an advert in the Melody Maker which said The Band of the Royal Corps Of Signals needed a vocalist. He travelled to Catterick camp in Yorkshire where the band was based. Did the audition and got the job. This offered Vince a way to do his National Service as well as experience performing all around the world.
11The decision to become a full-time musician came after he had worked as baker, truck driver and coal miner.
12In the eighties made guest appearances on popular television shows of the day, such as The Golden Shot, Seaside Special, Rainbow, The Good Old Days, 3-2-1 , Blankety Blank and Cash in the Attic.[.
13In 2010, Hill published his autobiography, Another Hill to Climb (Bank House Books), in collaboration with Nick Charles MBE.
14In January 1965, Vince was offered an international recording contract with the EMI group which signed him to their Columbia label.His first 'Top 20' chart success with his new label came a year later with "Take Me To Your Heart Again" - Hill's cover of the Édith Piaf hit, "La Vie En Rose" climbed to No. 13 on the UK Singles Chart in 1966.
15In 1982, Hill added acting to his CV, in the BBC radio drama, Tolpuddle (which he also wrote).
16In 1988, ITV gave Hill his own midday entertainment show 'Gas Street' in which he made his début as a TV presenter and interviewer - the show also co-starred Suzi Quatro.
17In January 2014, Hill suffered the loss of his only son, Athol, who was found dead aged 42.
18In 2004, Hill was diagnosed with prostate cancer and underwent successful keyhole surgery. A year later, following a routine blood test, it was discovered he also had chronic myeloid leukaemia. Following extensive treatment, the illness was brought under control.[.
19Along with a successful recording career in the 1960s, Hill hosted several hit TV shows during the seventies and eighties, including 'They Sold A Million' (BBC), 'Musical Time Machine' (BBC) and his own chat show 'Gas Street' (ITV).
20At the beginning of the 1960s, he joined the critically acclaimed British vocal group, The Raindrops, which gave him his first opportunity to perform in television and radio shows, especially on the BBC radio show Parade of the Pops.
