Have I The Right

The Honeycombs were an English pop group formed in 1963. The band featured Honey Lantree on drums. The band’s name was a pun on the drummer’s name and her job as a hairdresser’s assistant. Although in the press the band tried hard to play down the fact that she was female she became the star attraction of the band as she was one of very few female drummers at the time. Have I The Right was The Honeycombs’ first and biggest single. The prominence of the drums in the song was enhanced by having the members of the group stamp their feet on the wooden stairs to the studio. The song reached the top 10 in many countries and went to number one in the UK, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Sweden.
