Sherbet guitarist Clive Shakespeare dead
London: British-born Australian guitarist Clive Shakespeare died after losing his battle with prostate cancer. He was 62. The veteran guitarist died Wednesday after a long struggle with the disease, reports a website.
Shakespeare, who was born in 1949 in Southampton, England, migrated with his family to Australia and launched Sherbet in Sydney in 1969 and had hits like ‘Summer love’, ‘You`ve got the gun’, ‘Cassandra’, ‘Slipstream’ and ‘Silvery moon’. His biggest commercial success came with the single ‘Howzat’ in 1976, but Shakespeare had left the band by the time it was released.
He quit the band citing "personal reasons", and was replaced by Harvey James. Shakespeare rejoined the band for a number of reunion gigs over the years and in February 2011, they played a benefit concert in honour of James following his death from lung cancer the previous month.
