I am Vernon's brother, Nigel. I'm afraid Vernon died on 1st. July in the morning. He had been suffering from COPD for three years and needing oxygen almost continuously towards the end
I wanted to post something sooner but have only just worked out how to. I remember some of you from half a century ago. I remember being surprised when Gres told me his parents let him drink under age but not smoke. They were wise. Vernon was a heavy smoker living in a polluted city centre.
I hope you are still all alive. It's very sad that the rock 'n' roll era heydays are fading as more and more group members' lives come to an end.
I'm Vernon's brother, Nigel. I'm sorry to say that Vernon died in Madrid on 1st. July from COPD? He was 73
