David Garrick (born Philip Darryl Core,[1] 12 September 1946, Liverpool, England) is an English singer, best known for his 1966 pop hit, "Dear Mrs. Applebee".

Biography

As a teenager Philip Core sang in a Liverpool church choir, but got interested in opera and succeeded in obtaining a scholarship to be trained as an opera singer in Milan (Italy). He returned to Liverpool after two years, where he was frequently found in the famous Cavern Club and once improvised an opera excerpt of Pagliacci, rendering him the surname "The Opera Singer" at the club. The Kinks manager Robert Wace invited Core to come to London to record a first single. He picked the name David Garrick as stage name, after the famous 18th century actor and playwright.[2]

His first two singles "Go" (1965) and "One Little Smile" (1965) remained unsuccessful. In 1966 Garrick released a cover of The Rolling Stones song "Lady Jane", which got some airplay in the UK, but oddly peaked at #5 in the Netherlands. Later that year he covered "Dear Mrs. Applebee", a relatively unknown American song, written by Flip Cartridge,[3] and made it a hit in the Netherlands (#3),[4] Flanders (#3)[5] and Germany (#1),[6] but got no higher than #22 in UK Singles Chart.[7]

In following years, Garrick released numerous singles and albums, but never achieved any notable success again. In Germany he had two minor hits in 1967.[8] In 1970 he put an end to his musical career, and went to live in South Africa and Egypt for some years. In the 1990s he returned to Europe to attempt an unsuccessful comeback, mainly focused in Germany.
