Goodbye to Hot Chocolate singer Errol Brown

HARD to believe Hot Chocolate leader singer Errol Brown has died at his home in the Bahamas at only 71 years, of liver cancer.

Best remembered for the hits You Sexy Thing, It Started With A Kiss and Everyone’s A Winner, the guy was made an MBE by the Queen in 2003 and received an Ivor Novello award for his Outstanding Contribution to British Music in 2004.

Incidentally, three other favourites of mine by Errol and Hot Chocolate were Emma, Brother Louie and I’ll Put Your Together Again. RIP.
