Sad news that Gerry Marsden has passed away aged 78. I saw him once when he appeared at The Windmill ‘fun’ pub in Basford. Lovely singer with some brilliant ballads and by all accounts a thoroughly nice guy. R.I.P

Phil I'm 78 too. We had the local bulletin today and 3 out of 6 had died under 80. Scary.

Gerry wasn't quite an 'All Time Great'.. in the same sense as the Beatles.. Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles, Sinatra, Chuck Berry and many others.

 

But..  He was a member of the first band in UK History to go to No.1 with its first three singles. He co-wrote 'Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying'..which remains a classic song...and also 'Ferry Cross The Mersey'.  He was also.. by general consent. a genuinely nice bloke.I think he deserves a decent obit.
