His grandfather – who originated from Belgium - had been a chef in the merchant navy during World War II, before becoming Head Chef on The Union-Castle Line ships between England and South Africa. His maternal grandfather was a London docker. They sang "Saturday Love" together in 1985 on Cherrelle's gold album High Priority.

Love Is Blue" - Paul Mauriat Hot 100 Peak: No. 1 for five weeks (1968). Five years after he co-wrote Peggy March's No. 1 hit "I Will Follow Him," Mauriat was back on top of the Hot 100 with an instrumental cover of "L'Amor Est Bleu," Luxembourg's entry in the 1967 Eurovision Song Contest. Vicki Leandros performed the song, which placed fourth in the annual songfest. 1976 was a very good year for love songs achieving pole position on the Hot 100. First there was "Love Rollercoaster" by the Ohio Players, followed by Paul Simon's "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover," "Love Machine" by the Miracles, "Let Your Love Flow" by the Bellamy Brothers, "Love Hangover" by Diana Ross and the longest-running "love" No. 1 of the year, Wings' "Silly Love Songs. 4. "How Deep Is Your Love," Bee Gees Hot 100 Peak: No. 1 for three weeks (1977).
Some in North America will recall the name Paul Nicholas for his one big hit over here in 1977, Heaven On The 7th Floor, which reached 6 Billboard Pop Hot 100 and 23 on the Adult Contemporary (Easy Listening) charts late that summer. With Do You Want My Love as the flip, it came out on RSO 878, a label formed by Australian Robert Stigwood in 1973 with whom Nicholas had a long association (RSO Robert Stigwood Organisation) based in London (some of their releases were distributed over her through Atlantic Records)
