Cindy Dickinson

Cindy Dickinson was born, grew up and began her music career in the UK. She visited her sister in South Africa in the early 1980s and decided to stay.

She began her solo music career with the release of the single “Love Stealer” in 1982. In 1984 she became the vocalist for the group Syndicate and from there went on to join People Like Us in 1986.

After the death of band member Paul Crossley in 1989 Dickinson left People Like Us.

She continued to work in the music industry and married (now) former Capital Radio DJ Dave Guselli. She still lives in South Africa.

People Like Us

Hi-NRG/Euro disc group formed in 1986 in Johannesburg by producers Paul Crossley and Terry Owen. Cindy Dickinson left Syndicate to join the group on vocals.

They released the single “Reincarnation (Coming Back For Love)” in 1985. Their 1986 single “Deliverance” became a big success in Europe. This gave rise to the Deliverance album released in 1987 along with follow-up singles “Restless Lovers”, “Midnight Lovers”, “Hiroshima” and “Fighting For Our Lives”.

Cindy Dickinson left the group because she was being financially exploited. She was replaced by Angie Gold.

Paul Crossley died in August 1989.

A subsequent compilation CD People Like Us was released in 1988, including new songs with Angie Gold as vocalist in addition to mostly previously released songs sung by Cindy Dickinson.
