Errol Brown, R.I.P.

Errol Brown, the former lead singer of the British pop disco group Hot Chocolate, has passed away in his The Bahamas following a battle with liver cancer. He was 71.

The Jamaican born Brown wrote Hot Chocolate’s signature song “You Sexy Thing” which became a hit in 1975 and re-charted in Britain again both in the 1980’s and 1990’s. The song has been used in countless movies and TV shows.

Brown also co-wrote “Brother Louie”, a song about forbidden interracial love, which would later become a hit for Stories and decades later became a smash in North Korea because it was Kim Jong-un’s favorite song.

Brown was also a vocal supporter of Britain’s Conservative Party and even performed at a Conservative Party Conference while Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister.

Alexis Petridis of The Guardian has an interesting profile of Brown and Hot Chocolate.
