ILOSM fam’ unfortunately we have more sad news to report. It seems like we’re losing many of the Old School greats. Errol Brown, the lead singer of the 70’s/80’s group, Hot Chocolate, has died at the age of 71 from liver cancer. I’m sure many of you remember their hit lyrics: “I believe in miracles where you from, you sexy thing…”

Brown passed away at his home in the Bahamas and tributes have already begun to pour in from devastated fans. His manager, Phil Dale, confirmed the sad news today and he said that Brown was “a wonderful gentleman”.

Brown and the rest of Hot Chocolate gained success in the 70’s and 80’s and their career was revived in 1997 when their song “You Sexy Thing” was featured in the movie, Full Monty.

Their other big hit was “Every 1’s A Winner” as many of you from the Old School probably remember.

Our condolences go out to Errol Brown’s family and loved ones. May he rest well and his legacy continue to live on.
