GerryMARSDENGerry and the Pacemakers star Gerry Marsden - famous for hits like You’ll Never Walk Alone - has died aged 78 after a short illness which was an infection in his heart.

The legend shot to fame as the leader of the 1960s Merseybeat band Gerry and the Pacemakers.

Sixties pop icon Gerry was best known for the hit You'll Never Walk Alone but they had a string of huge hits and were one of the biggest bands of their generation.

Their hit songs included Ferry Cross The Mersey, I'll Be There, How Do You Do It? and I Like It.

They are famously remembered for being the first ever act to reach number one in the UK charts with their first three single releases.

Gerry died after he suffered with an infection in his heart. In 2003, Gerry had a triple bypass heart surgery in Liverpool. The musician had his second heart operation in 2016.

During his high-flying career, Gerry enjoyed almost 60 years of touring as a musician. He first formed Gerry and the Pacemakers with his brother Fred, Les Chadwick and Arthur McMahon. Both bands played to eager crowds in Liverpool and Hamburg.

As well as music, the musician was a television personality. Also he tried his hand at acting as he starred in West End musical Charlie Girl with Derek Nimmo and Anna Neagle. They made their mark on the music sphere as rivals to the Beatles in their early career. The star announced his retirement and bowed out of the showbiz world in November 2018. His love of music stemmed back to fond memories of singing in his childhood.

Gerry is survived by his wife Pauline Marsden and their two daughters Yvette and Victoria. The couple were married for 55 wonderful years after they tied the knot in 1965.
