Richard Paul Astley is most known for the catchy songs of the 1980s and the cross-generational phenomenon known as the Rickrolling meme. He was born on February 6, 1966, in Lancashire, England, and throughout his career, Astley has seen success, a pause, and a stunning comeback that has cemented his status in popular culture


Ashley’s musical career began when he joined the soul group FBI as a drummer during his post-school years. But his major break came from a chance meeting with the production firm Stock Aitken Waterman. The collaboration resulted in the 1987 single “Whenever You Need Somebody,” which catapulted Astley to international stardom.

Astley left Stock Aitken Waterman in 1991 and went on to explore a transition from dance-pop to soul with albums such as “Free” (1991) and “Body and Soul” (1993). The 1991 hit song “Cry for Help” signaled a change in his style. Astley did, however, break away from music in 1993 to concentrate on his family.

In 2000, Astley made a comeback to the music industry with the song “Sleeping,” and in 2001, he released the album “Keep It Turned On,” after a six-year absence. Then, in 2007, the music video for “Never Gonna Give You Up” became the focal point of the Rickrolling meme, which is a joke in which users of the internet are abruptly sent to the song’s video.

This was the beginning of his unanticipated comeback. The main song from the album, “Never Gonna Give You Up,” went on to become a worldwide hit, peaking at number one in 25 countries and winning him the 1988 Brit Award for Best British Song. Astley became well-known due to his charming youthful demeanor and beautiful voice.

Astley continued to produce songs after his successful debut, such as “Together Forever,” which peaked at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. His second album, “Hold Me In Your Arms” (1988), which included the breakthrough song “She Wants to Dance with Me,” was a showcase for his talents.

He celebrated his fiftieth birthday in 2010 by releasing the song “Lights Out” and the album “50” six years later, which debuted at No. 1 in the UK. Astley’s ability to adapt to changing times was demonstrated by the internet phenomenon, which gave his performing career fresh life.

After the release of his albums “Beautiful Life” in 2018 and the greatest hits collection “The Best of Me” in 2019, Ashley’s career flourished even more. These recordings, which were produced in his Surrey home studio, demonstrated his ongoing brilliance and significance.

In 2008, Astley won the MTV Europe Music Awards as “Best Act Ever” because of the surprising success of the Rickrolling phenomenon.
