John's Memories

Maureen Gray walked into my record shop in Philly and told me she could sing. Well, she was right! Boy could she sing! She was only 12 years old but already she had developed an amazing set of chops. Dave White and I wrote and produced 15 songs with her, with two of our songs reaching the charts, “Today’s The Day” and “Dancing The Strand."

What Happened Next?

Maureen went on to work with such greats as Arranger Paul Buckmaster, and sang with Billy

Preston, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, David Bowie, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, just to name a


Maureen Gray continued her career as a singer/songwriter, going by the name “Girl,” which

originated with a group she formed called Girl Talk.


On January 7, 2014, Maureen passed away.  She will be missed.  Rest in peace, Maureen.
