Freddie Garrity RIP

Singer Freddie dies in hospital: "Freddie Garrity, the lead singer of the 1960s pop band Freddie and the Dreamers, has died in hospital. The 69-year-old, originally from Manchester, had been receiving treatment for what were described as 'circulation problems'." I got my nickname Fred at school from Freddie - he was short and wore glasses! His great album was one of the first I ever bought, on Bury Market for 37/6d and I saw him a couple of times at Bury Palais. Happy memories...
