LIFE AND CAREER
Joe Dolan's first job was as a compositor with the Westmeath Examiner before starting his musical career when he and his brother joined The Drifters in the early 1960s. This launched his career as a showband entertainer.
His biggest hit was "Make Me An Island" [written by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood], which went to Number 3 in the UK Singles Chart in 1969, and Number 1 in fourteen other countries. He was very popular in Ireland and among Irish emigrants from 1964 into the 1980s. He toured a great deal, and had several stints in Las Vegas. In 1978, Dolan became the first Western pop singer to perform in the Soviet Union. In 1997, he re-recorded "Good Looking Woman" as a charity record with Dustin the Turkey, reaching Number One in the Irish Singles Chart. In 1998 and 1999, he released two successful albums of covers of songs by Britpop and rock artists, including Blur, Oasis, U2 and Bruce Springsteen.In 2005, Dolan had a hip replacement. In autumn 2007, on advice from his doctors, Dolan cancelled his Vicar Street concerts due to "exhaustion". On December 16 2007, the front page of the Sunday Independent reported that Dolan was suffering a "bad virus" and had been forced to cancel his entire Christmas tour. Joe Dolan's website was inundated with well wishes in the wake of the article, which was reproduced in several newspapers the following day.
On December 26, 2007, Dolan was rushed from his home in Foxrock to the Mater Private Hospital in Dublin following a worsening of his illness. He died of a brain haemorrhage at approximately 15:00 hours that day.
