We said Goodbye to Procol Harum’s Gary Brooker last week with many people in attendance performing heart felt tributes to the man that inspired so many.

Gary Brooker, singer, pianist and composer of Procol Harum, has passed away, aged 76.

He died peacefully at home following a battle with cancer.

From his first single with Procol Harum, 1967’s A Whiter Shade of Pale, Brooker and the band went on to release 13 albums.

Gary Brooker’s voice and piano were the defining constant of Procol Harum’s 50-year international touring career.

Mark Lundquist, a friend and colleague of the late singer, said: “Gary was a very special person – you knew this as soon as you met him. People like Gary are rare. I had never met anyone like him before; and feel extremely fortunate to have known him personally as well as professionally.”
