Gordon Haskell, who was more in the folk/easy listening aspect, died at 74. He will be best remembered here for a #2 hit How Wonderful You Are.

Tony Lewis, of The Outfield, was more famous in the US than here in the UK, but he's died at 62.

And of course Spencer Davis, of his titular Group, has died at 81. He will be remembered whenever anyone plays Keep On Running.

RIP all 3  Sad Sad Sad

Famous agent Eric Hall died at 73 this week. He was latterly more famous as a sports agent, but in the 1970s, he worked in PR, and befriended Freddie Mercury and Marc Bolan, and arranged the infamous Sex Pistols appearance with Bill Grundy which did so much.

Also passed is Bruce Swedien, engineer and producer, who was 86. He worked on Thriller, and with many jazz greats, plus acts from Natalie Cole to Paul McCartney, Donna Summer to David Hasslehoff.
