Gerry Marsden dead: Gerry and the Pacemakers star dies aged 78 following heart infection

“Very sorry to hear this. Gerry was a national Treasure for sure. I still regularly listen to Ferry across the Mersey – just one of his classics. RIP,” wrote another.

Originating in Liverpool in 1959, Merseybeat band Gerry and the Pacemakers were pioneers of the music scene, rivalling the Beatles from the outset of their career.

Gerry formed the group, recruiting his brother Fred, Les Chadwick, and Arthur McMahon as the original band members.

Their first three single releases – How Do You Do It?, I Like It and You’ll Never Walk Alone – made history, each reaching number one on the charts.
