Sad news indeed. One of the most soulful voices to come out of the UK, leaving behind a significant body of work. RIP.

  • The Chants were a great soulful Rn B outfit in the 1960,s they were kept under because the fad at the time was beat music their style was more American , they were pretty famous in the North West obviously in Liverpool running parallel with the Beatles, Searchers , ect because at the time 90 % of what became beat groups were doing soul and RNB in their live performances by late 1963 the emphasis had changed to the new music craze which was beat the Chants fronted by Eddie and his brother stuck to their roots and got left behind by the more commercial beat sound till they reinvented their selves as the Real thing so at their hard work paid off fianacially in 1975 after 13 years of gigging touring, Eddie and his group even learned to play their own instruments so they could deliver the music on their terms before that the Chants were a vocalist group
