OWEN PAUL - Anyone remember him ?
« on: May 27, 2008, 20:00:45 PM »
Does anyone remember Owen Paul who had a hit with 'My Favorite Waste Of Time'

I thought he was a promising act but was a one hit wonder.

You ocasionally see him on blooper shows etc

Anyone know what ever happened to him ?? ::) O0

OWEN PAUL
'My Favourite Waste Of Time'. Taken from his only album 'As It Is'
this classic track spent 13 weeks in the UK charts, finally peaking at No. 3
Also released 'Pleased to me you' but that never got anywhere in the UK Chart

You might be able to find More out if you look under "Owen Paul Mcgee" ?? as he released stuff in 2002 under his full real name
