Today the music world mourns the loss of Errol Brown MBE most commonly known as Hot Chocolate.
Starting his career in 1970 the band’s hits included ‘It Started With A Kiss’, ‘You Sexy Thing’ and ‘Everyone’s A Winner’ – songs which never seem to go out of fashion.
Errol passed away after a long battle with liver cancer, at his home in the Bahamas, leaving behind his wife and 2 daughters.
