Having a one night stand doesn't mean you don't love your wife.

Showband singer Dickie Rock tells the Roisin Meets podcast of life on the road and his enduring addiction to performing

The thing about being unfaithful or having a one night stand, it doesn't mean you don't love your wife, says 78-year-old showband legend, Dickie Rock.

There was a lot of temptation in the heady days he spent performing to packed-out ballrooms in the 1960s and 1970s, with crowds of women throwing themselves at him. So, has he ever succumbed to weakness?

Oh of course I have. I regret it from the point of view of my wife Judy. I would regret it very much so. She forgave me. She knew I loved her, he told Roisin Ingle, presenter of the Roisin Meets podcast.

A working class lad from Cabra on Dublin's north side, Dickie Rock was one of the biggest stars of Ireland's hugely popular showband scene as part of the Miami Showband and later as a solo artist, with a sex symbol status to rival Beatlemania.


In the beginning, his father didn't quite know what to make of the hordes of girls hanging outside the family home hoping to catch a glimpse of his son. Dickie said he didn't understand it himself for a while.
