Carrière de chanteur[modifier | modifier le code]

Début de carrière[modifier | modifier le code]

Bare avait vainement proposé ses chansons dès les années 1950. Il signa finalement avec Capitol Records et enregistra quelques morceaux de rock and roll, sans succès. Son jour de chance arriva en 1959 alors qu'il allait partir au service militaire: il réalisa une démo de "The All-American Boy" pour son ami Bill Parsons, et la compagnie Fraternity Records décida de diffuser la démo plutôt que l'enregistrement réalisé ensuite. Ce fut un succès du Billboard mais sous le nom de Bill Parsons[1],[2]
