David Essex – The Artist

David Essex OBE (born David Albert Cook; 1947) is an English singer, songwriter, and actor. Since the 1970s, he has attained 19 Top 40 singles in the UK (including two number ones) and 16 Top 40 albums. Internationally, Essex had the most success with his 1973 single “Rock On”. He has also had an extensive career as an actor. His biggest hits during the 70s included two UK Number One singles: “Gonna Make You a Star” (1974) and “Hold Me Close” (1975). In 1978 he starred in the motorcycle racing film Silver Dream Racer; and the soundtrack song “Silver Dream Machine” was a Top 5 hit in the UK Singles Chart. Essex, a keen motorcyclist, waived his fee for the then-new 1980 electric start Triumph Bonneville he had contracted to advertise on behalf of the struggling Triumph motorcycle workers’ co-operative.

Silver Dream Machine – The Song

‘Silver Dream Machine’  is a song by David Essex released in March 1980 as a single from the film Silver Dream Racer in which Essex also starred. Despite the film’s commercial failure, the song reached number 4 on the UK Singles Charts, making it Essex’s sixth top 5 hit.

The Racing Motorcycle – The Shape

Modelled into a silhouette of a racing motorcycle and its rider taking a corner. Silver Dream Racer is a 1980 motor-racing film starring British pop star David Essex and Beau Bridges. The film was produced, written and directed by David Wickes. It would become the last film to be made by the Rank Organisation. The film is about Nick Freeman (David Essex) an aspiring motorcycle racer, whose brother has been developing an experimental motorcycle. When his brother dies before being able to test and race the new bike, Nick inherits the responsibility to prove his brother’s design. In spite of a series of tough setbacks, including the loss of his girlfriend, Nick goes into the big race at the British Grand Prix with all his energy and concentration bent on winning.
