Default Gordon Haskell: How Wonderful You Are singer dies aged 74

Gordon Haskell, the guitarist and singer who scored a huge chart hit late in his career, has died aged 74.

He released his first album in 1969, but failed to make the UK charts for the next three decades, despite releasing eight more solo albums.

However, his 2001 track How Wonderful You Are became a surprise hit, reaching number two in the UK singles chart.

It was narrowly beaten to the Christmas number one spot by Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman's Somethin' Stupid.

But that didn't stop How Wonderful You Are from surpassing The Beatles' Hey Jude and Frank Sinatra's My Way in becoming Radio 2's most-requested song ever.

Thank ya for the music! RIP
