Merseybeat legend Gerry Marsden has sadly passed away at the age of 78, as reported by the Echo.
The Toxteth-born musician, most famous for Liverpool’s matchday anthem, ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, died following a heart infection.
Marsden was a treasured member of the city and the Liverpool F.C. family, and he’ll be dearly missed by all.
It’s fitting that through the club’s pre-match anthem, the Gerry and the Pacemakers singer’s work will continue to be immortalised. You’ll Never Walk Alone, Gerry, and, because of you, neither will we.
