Paper Lace - "Billy Don't Be A Hero" [Live 1974 - Lyrics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cdFuMgMkBM -- Paper Lace are a Nottingham-based pop group, formed in 1967. They are known to Americans as a one-hit wonder; however, in the UK they were a "classic two-and-a-half-hit wonder". The core of the band originally formed in 1967 as Music Box, but changed their name to Paper Lace when Phil Wright joined as drummer and lead singer.
