2015 RIP

We have all been commenting that 2020 is becoming a bad year for the deaths of our musical heroes and many of us have been comparing it to 2016.
My Saturday paper has a  From the Archives section when it looks at events 5 ,10,25 years ago etc.

The 5 years ago entry was lamenting the death of BB King (May 14th) hot on the heels of Percy Sledge (April 24th), Ben E King (April 30th) and Errol Brown (6th May ).
I think we can add  2015 to the list

B.B.King - Hully Gully Twist

Percy Sledge - Let it Be Me

Ben E King - It's All Over

Hot Chocolate - Emma

  1. Hot Chocolate always held a special place in my heart even though I was of the rock and prog rock persuasion at that time - Love Is Life, Brother Louie but esp Emma were great songs. I cooled on them as they became better known (odd that) and even more so when Errol identified himself as a Tory/Thatcher lover. Such is life.
