Ed King, guitarist in both the Strawberry Alarm Clock and more notably Lynyrd Skynyrd, has died at the age of 76. He left LS over disagreements with Ronnie van Zant, and his replacement Steve Gaines died in LS' infamous plane crash a year or two later. When they reunited in 1987, he was there, but left again in 1996 because of heart problems. He died of cancer.

Also Jill Janus took her own life last week. She was the lead singer with Huntress, and just 43.

Chas Hodges, much loved member of Cockney duo Chas & Dave, has died at the age of 74. He had been battling cancer for a while. Together they had several hits in the late 70s & early 80s like Gertcha and Rabbit, but I think their biggest hit was the following:

Ain't No Pleasin' You

He left the San Francisco-based band in 1970 - but later got back together with some of its members under the name Jefferson Starship.
He was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.

Babs Beverley, of 50s trio the Beverley Sisters, has died at the age of 91. With Joy dying in 2015, that leaves Teddie as the sole surviving member.

Country legend Roy Clark has died from pneumonia. He was 85. He won multiple CMA awards in his career, and worked busily on television. His only country #1 was 1973's "Come Live With Me."

Oscar/Grammy-winning lyricist Norman Gimbel has died at the age of 91. Though he apparently wrote the words to "Killing me Softly with his Song", and "The Girl from Ipanema", I suspect the Happy Days theme is more of a claim to fame.

Ray Sawyer, eye-patch wearer extraordinaire from Dr Hook, died the other day, aged 81. This year will mark 40 years since their big success (in the UK at least) with When You're In Love With A Beautiful Woman. IIRC, Sawyer was often mistaken for being the mythical Dr Hook, by people who should have known better.

Continuing a bad week for middle-of-the-road musicians:

Dean Ford, from 60s hitsters Marmalade ("Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" etc) has died at the age of 72.

Also Daryl Dragon, better known by his soubrqieut The Captain, in 70s chart-sters The Captain & Tennille, has died at the age of 76. They had a US #1 with their version of Neil Sedaka's "Love Will Keep Us Together".
