Glenn Shorrock Family And Early Days
Born on June 30, 1944, Glenn is currently 78. The native of Chatham, Kent, England, UK, moved with his family to Adelaide, South Australia, on the Orcades ocean liner when he was 10.
Gless is the son of Harry Shorrock and Joyce Shorrock. His Father, Harry, was a Yorkshire-born staff member at the Weapons Research Establishment in Salisbury, South Australia, working as the fitter and turner.
The 1954–55 summer had days of 42 °C, and then Black Sunday bushfires were ravaging. As a result, Glenn’s London-born mother took him and his younger sister, Lynda, back to the U.K., only to return to Australia for the second time in 1956. Then, the family settled in Elizabeth, 20 km north of Adelaide.
Glenn made his first public performance in 1958 at St Peter’s Lutheran church hall in Elizabeth. He mimed Elvis Presley’s All Shook Up. When the record player stopped, he had to continue singing by himself and realized he had a decent voice.
