                  Paul Russell

                  TRIBUTE TO PAUL RUSSELL R.I.P. by Bill Brady in Dublin Ireland

                  Paul Russell – the man who brought the Beatles to Dublin in 1963 – died after a long illness in Florida on Thursday 03-24-2016 aged 79 years. Paul was a very prominent figure and somewhat larger than life, personality in the music business in late 50’s/60’s Dublin, and was a very successful artiste/performer (Singer, drummer M.C. and TV Presenter) In the early 60’s Paul left Ireland for the U.K. with the intention of learning the ropes vis-vis management in the music business: hence The Beatles Dublin appearance in 1963. There were many others: the late Dusty Springfield’s first solo performance/appearance anywhere in the world-for example. I did a lot of work with, and for Paul and have nothing but the fondest of memories of him, and of our shared time together. Beginning in 1965/66 Paul began working the U.S. Air Bases in Germany and further afield in Tripoli Libya. His band during this time was called The Dublinairs – not to be confused with The Dubliners – and Paul and Paula (stage name for Grace, his wife) and The Dublinairs toured the U.S. Air Bases in Europe until the early ’70s. Cheers Paul I raise my glass to you and toast your memory! Bill Brady March 2016.  ( Published in the Florida Sun-Sentinel from Mar. 31 to Apr. 3, 2016)
