This afternoon’s ‘Tickets @ 2’ song is a one hit wonder of sorts…it’s “How Long?” by Ace. Even though this was the only hit for Ace, lead singer Paul Carrack branched off to launch a successful career with some other well-known groups.

Lead singer Paul Carrack went on to sing for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Squeeze[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Mike And The Mechanics[/lastfm].

When singer-songwriter Paul Carrack appeared on the BBC Breakfast news in June of 2009, he was asked about the inspiration for the song. Rather than being about a two-timing lover it was, he said about another band who were “trying to nick our bass player.”
