On February 9, 1997: Brian Connolly dies at the age of 52

listen RA.225 K.

For a couple of weeks Brian had been very ill, possibly with a stroke and another heart attack, but had been asked not to let this news out, so as to give Brian every opportunity to recover. Unfortunately, the hospital was to release him and send him home as they felt there was nothing more they could do.

He didn't make it home, but died later on Sunday night in the hospital. Brian's problem with alcohol has left him physically scared. He is reputed to have had more heart attacks than any other man still alive. Brian's last concert at Bristol on December 5th, before contractual problems, then ill health, prevented further concerts.
