|Errol Brown passed away.|
Since you came along....
You sexy thing!
The memorable line from famed soul singer Errol Brown.
The soul group Hot Chocolate was big during the disco days. Its lead front man Errol Brown passed away today. The Associated Press confirms from his family said that Brown died at age 71 at his home in the Bahamas.
Lester Errol Brown was born in Kingston, Jamaica, but moved to the UK when he was twelve years old. His break in music came in 1969 when he recorded a version of John Lennon's "Give Peace a Chance", with some friends. Unable to change the lyrics without Lennon's permission, he sent a copy to his record label, Apple, and the song was released with Lennon's approval.
The Hot Chocolate albums were produced by Mickie Most and recorded at the RAK Records studio. Brown had a solo career since the 1980s, and achieved music success in the clubs with the 1987 single "Body Rocking", produced by Richard James Burgess.
Brown was a supporter of the Conservative Party, and performed at a party conference in the 1980s.
In 1981, he performed at the wedding reception following the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, at Buckingham Palace.
Brown owned National Hunt horses, including Gainsay.
