    Default Bernie Wenton

    TRIBUTES FOR THE 'UNFORGETTABLE' BERNIE WENTON.

    Liverpool’s Bernie Wenton has died after a battle with cancer. The
    much-loved singer, who was crowned Stars in their Eyes champion with his
    performance as Nat King Cole, passed away peacefully at home in Toxteth
    aged 59. Friends described grandfather Mr Wenton as "a wonderful guy".
    Fellow performer Ray Amando said: "He played in bands, was a vocal teacher
    and sang - he was a great, fun guy, a personality. It's so sad to lose him.
    In show business there are a lot of people who are affected, but there was
    no side to Bernie. He always had a smile on his face and he did a lot of
    charity work. He was only diagnosed with cancer last year and was having
    treatment, but it spread. He couldn't work because of his illness and
    everyone rallied round, holding gala nights. They've been so kind." Mr
    Wenton was born and brought up in Toxteth. His day job was as a bricklayer,
    but music was his passion. His father was a musician and three of the
    Wenton brothers - Bernie, Willy and Bobby --formed the Buzz Brothers. The
    group is named on Mathew Street's ‘Wall of Fame’ outside the Cavern. During
    the 1960s Bernie performed with many well-known Liverpool names but it was
    in 1991 he found fame as the winner of ITV's Stars in Their Eyes, later
    touring all over Britain and abroad. Second wife Trisha and four children
    survive Mr Wenton. RIP Bernie- “Happy Days”.

    No I have n't but Hall of Fame would be appropriate.
    Maybe the Ring of Fire story should be separate thread, what do you think?
