E’ morto ieri (26 gennaio) all’età di 53 anni, Colin Vearncombe noto come Black, l’autore della celebre “Wonderful Life”, uno dei “pezzi” di maggior successo degli anni ottanta. “Black” è deceduto a causa di un incidente d’auto avvenuto 16 giorni fa mentre stava raggiungendo l’aeroporto da Cork, in Irlanda. I funerali in forma privata si terranno a Liverpool, dove Black era nato. La morte è stata annunciata sulla sua pagina Facebook con un semplice messaggio: “Colin Vearncombe. 26/5/1962 – 26/1/2016. Non camminerai mai solo”. Lascia la moglie Camilla e tre figli.
L’annuncio sulla sua pagina FB
“We’re deeply saddened to announce the death of Colin Vearncombe (aka Black) earlier today, Tuesday 26th January 2016. Colin never regained consciousness following a road traffic accident sixteen days ago. He died peacefully surrounded by his family who were singing him on his way.
His wife Camilla and his three sons paid tribute to the staff at the Intensive Treatment Unit of Cork University Hospital saying; “Colin received the best possible care from the expert and highly professional staff there and we are deeply grateful for everything they did”.
The funeral will be a private one, but we will be holding a memorial service for him in Liverpool in the near future as we know there are many, many people who will want to celebrate Colin’s life and work. The date and time will be announced in due course, along with details of a charity to which any donations in memory of Colin can be made.
No need to laugh or cry
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life”
