I guessed right (partly because of Greenbank's response and, I guess, because his name was in my mind after hearing the news).  And I cheated to confirm it because I'd have been very embarrassed had it been wrong.  And I don't have a question to ask.  Carry on.

I haven't cheated, and my next guess would be Shakin' Stevens?
