    RIP Gerry Marsden of Gerry & the Pacemakers

    Gerry Marsden, frontman of the British band Gerry and the Pacemakers and singer on hits like “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “Ferry Cross the Mersey” and “Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying,” has died at the age of 78.

    Gerry and the Pacemakers’ rendition of the Rodgers-Hammerstein Carousel show tune “You’ll Never Walk Alone” became a Number One hit in the U.K. in 1963, and soon was adopted as the “football anthem” of the Liverpool soccer team, with supporters of the team chanting the song at home matches.
    “It is with such great sadness that we hear of Gerry Marsden’s passing,” Liverpool FC tweeted Sunday. “Gerry’s words will live on forever with us. You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
    Marsden’s friend Pete Price, a British broadcaster, announced news of the singer’s death Sunday. “It’s with a very heavy heart after speaking to the family that I have to tell you the Legendary Gerry Marsden MBE after a short illness which was an infection in his heart has sadly passed away,” Price wrote on social media. The BBC confirmed Marsden’s death.
