American actor and noted star of the TV series "Starsky And Hutch." In the '70s he moved to England to work as a professional singer with a cabaret act, playing minor gigs and not making much money. Back in the States, he made a debut as a singer on "The Merv Griffin Show" before landing a role in the TV series "Here Come The Brides." On 3/27/1978 he had a back operation due to a ruptured disk.

He married Patti in October 1980; they had two kids. He was first in the news for spousal abuse with his third wife when he was arrested for beating her. On 9/09/1977, he had a paternity suit of $1.5 million for an illegitimate daughter that was settled out of court. He made a fourth marriage in December 1987, with another child in July 1988.

As of 1995 he had chalked up four divorces and six kids, along with jail time for wife battering. A heavy drinker, he apparently had problems with self-control. In the early '90s he left TV acting and the U.S. behind, settling in London in 1995. He made a flourished career as an European recording artist and West End Stage actor. He returned to Hollywood to make a TV movie, "Terror in the Mall," that came out on 7/29/1998.

On July 12, 2004, the singer-actor stepped into the role of Jerry Springer in the London-based musical, Jerry Springer - The Opera. Soul will star in the musical until January 2005.
