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.

What???

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…
