Are there any worldwide known people from Hull?
I'm updating the info about Hull on my site (fixing the errors the previous guy wrote 6 years ago).
I haven't heard of any of the "celebrities/bands" he has written down
Fat Boy Slim aka Norman Cook
Everything But The Girl
Surely there must be somebody who is known worldwide?
You forgot OLM Febbos
Err... there's Reece Shearsmith, one of the blokes who made 'The League of Gentlemen' and 'Psychoville'.
Tom Courtenay, some old bloke.
Amy Johnson, first woman to fly around the world alone.
I think William Wilberforce made a bit of a name for himself.
Norman Cook isn't from Hull he just lived here for a while when he was in the House Martins. Here is a list of people who are mostly from Hull or lived in Hull for a while - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ston_upon_Hull
Mick Ronson is well known worldwide. In music circle's.
Besides Deano I haven't heard any of the names yet
Larkin is from Coventry.....(quick googling)
if im not much mistaken girlband SCARLET, who's early to mid 90's hit 'independent love song' rode high in the charts, were from hull.
