24 Minutes From Risca

What a pity.

In Marc Almond's words "a great, unique singer of great, unique songs. But enough about me".

Still, he went after a sell-out show. But a shame to die in a lonely hotel room, with the missus a couple of thousand miles away.

I stop and smile
I take my bow
I leave the stage
And then somehow

Backstage - I'm lonely ...

Vale Gene.

A voice I will never forget. The soundtrack in the background of my childhood.

As we saw on recent TV appearances a charming but very down-to-earth unpretentious man behind that marvellous voice. Sadly rare in showbiz. Will be missed.
