I was just talking with my Ma about this, she was a teenager in this era and saw most of the 60's at her local Hall.
She mentioned with a clarity like it was yesterday, "Gerry was married to the same lady his whole life, She'd been dating George Harrison when George went out on tour, she met Gerry and the rest is history"..
Quite cool how certain things about artists stick in peoples minds.
I saw him on a local sports TV show about 15 years ago and he sang "You'll Never Walk Alone" and there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
Mum added that their music could be listened to by everyone, even her parents, and my Grandfather thought Bing Crosby walked on water, thought Sinatra was to poppy and yearned for Glenn Miller
Very sad news about Gerry Marsdon..........who is.....and will always be ,a Liverpool legend.
In my mind he will always be remembered for 'You'll Never Walk Alone' and 'Ferry across the Mersey' , but his band had quite a few more big hits back in those great days.
He was a big part of ' The Mersey Beat' back in the 60's and I love looking at my T.A.M.I. show DVD from 1964 ...........to see all those great performances from USA and UK.
Those great performances by the best of USA and UK will always be remembered by so many of us music fans.
