Hong Kong Stories...by Hans Ebert



............................


Samuel became Sam and started something

I termed in Billboard Canto Rock

When Canto Rock became soft and mellow

It was quickly renamed Canto Pop


............................


Jimmy’s Kitchen was where many of us went

especially for their Madras Chicken Curry

Suddenly there was a McDonald’s on Paterson Street

if we needed a Big Mac and fries in a hurry



............................


In 1964, the Beatles performed at the Princess Theatre with Jimmy Nicol on drums

Some of us were still at KGV not knowing what else there was to come



............................


Uncle Ray has been there and met them all

Knew Matt Monro when he was Terry Parsons

Hollywood quickly came to check things out

The stars stayed at the Hong Kong Hilton




............................


Director Wong Kar-wai took the Chungking Express

He brought singer Faye Wong for the ride

Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung starred in

“In The Mood For Love” and showed his romantic side
