FRONTMAN and co-founder of British soul band Hot Chocolate Errol Brown has died.
Famous for hits in the 70s and 80s including You Sexy Thing, It Started With A Kiss and So You Win Again, the singer has died at his home in the Bahamas after battling with liver cancer, manager Phil Dale announced.
Social media sites are seeing fellow musicians from across the world pay tribute to Brown.
Singer Beverley Knight said: “I am so gutted. Errol Brown was such a charismatic performer.”
Chic frontman Nile Rodgers said: “We had some good times back in the day. #ErrolBrown RIP.”
Journalist and author Tony Parsons said: “Sad news about Errol Brown of Hot Chocolate who kicked down a lot of barriers.”
Brown was made an MBE in 2003 and given an Ivor Novello award a year later for his outstanding contribution to British music.
“There was always music around wherever he was. I’ve been with him in the middle of Australia and he has got an idea for a song and started writing,” Dale said.
“Errol was a lover of life and obviously music.
“Errol was a gentle man and was a personal friend of mine who will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him. His greatest legacy is that his music will live on.”
Brown is survived by his wife Ginette and two daughters, Colette and Leonie.
