When I Heard this on the Golden Hour (Simon Bates) He said don't get Confused with This and a Group Called Kenny. As This Kenny Is Tony Kenny and He Is from Australia?. So He Is Actually from Ireland. I Already Knew they were not One and the Same. H.
ZZ , Re Kenny (Tony Kenny) , both histories are true in a way. http://www.irish-showbands.com/Bands/tonykenny.htm. Tony Kenny recorded this track , after he left RAK and went back to Dublin to work in musical theatre , Mickie Most at RAK created from band called Chuff a re-named Kenny , which maintained the sound and style of this track. Tony Kenny , per the link above changed styles on later solo recordings in Ireland. In the UK the average record buyer would probably not have been aware of these differences ( including a teenage ignorant me ).
"Irish showband vocalist Tony Kenny who very confusingly shared a record label (RAK) and songwriting team with another Kenny"
The above quote can be found on this site by clicking on "Kenny [Ireland]" at the top of this page. Even more confusingly, this Kenny also had the same basic sound as the other Kenny, who joined the RAK roster at RAK 186. In fact, I once saw a copy of this single in a second hand shop, not having previously remembered it in the charts. This was when the other Kenny were successful and "Heart Of Stone" was about two years old. I naturally thought it was the same band who did "The Bump" etc. It was not until late 1977, when I first had the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles, that I found out there were two artists called Kenny. After that I heard "Heart Of Stone" on the radio and thought "are you sure this isn't the same Kenny who did "The Bump" in 1974?". It does sound like it.
