English born singer Trevor Hales was a household name in the late 60s NZ music scene. After a stint with raunchy Auckland r’n’b act The Pleazers, he launched a solo career as Shane. He was spotted by TV producer Kevan Moore who had turned up to an Auckland club to audition another vocalist for a resident slot replacing Mr Lee Grant on pop show C’mon — but Hales got the job instead. His biggest hit came with ‘St Paul’ — written about Beatle Paul McCartney — which topped the charts and took out the Loxene Golden disc for local song of the year in 1969.
