Chris Norman is the former lead vocalist of Smokie, a legendary rock band based in England that caused a sensation across Europe with a number of hits including "Living Next Door to Alice," "Stumlin' In," and "I'll Meet You at Midnight."

He also talks about how he has been following his passion for music to this day, releasing new albums and going on tours.
