Paul Gless: Unknown Songwriter Found in Drawer
This site is about unknown singer/songwriter Paul Gless, born in a box and raised in oblivion to the world outside, except for the Beatles’ White Album which was playing constantly on his sister’s record player. Right until the moment when she exchanged it for Duran Duran’s “Duran Duran”. Did we mention that?
Paul Gless was born in the early Seventies in a little town called Songbuettel, situated close to Hamburg, Germany, on workdays but completely isolated during the weekend.
His parents left when he was only four years old but, to their credit, took him with them. They settled in Wales, then France, then Canada and a few other places that the boy would not remember in later life. From there it was only a small step to old age and — finally — fame.
We are still trying to find out what happened after they moved back to Germany. Paul himself is rather reticent about the past in general. But we are pretty sure to find out in the end. At the moment we are trying to obtain his birth certificate to find out the exact date of birth and the mysterious middle name.
Which middle name??
The middle name of Paul C. Gless.
“C”! What the “C” stands for!
THERE IS NO “C” ANYWHERE! NOT IN MY NAME ANYWAY, I SHOULD KNOW SHOULDN’T I???
I guess we know what it stands for…
