Gerry Marsden

  • Gerry and the Pacemakers singer Gerry Marsden, whose version of You'll Never Walk Alone became a football terrace anthem for his hometown club of Liverpool, has died at the age of 78.

    Gerry sang You''ll Never Walk Alone and Liverpool fans made the song famous but the song was actually written by Rogers and Hammerstein.

    But my favorite version was sung by Louis Armstrong

    Nina Simone also recorded an instrumental version

  • That version of the song, certainly puts a lump in the throat

    Originally composed by Rodger and Hammerstein for the theatre show Carousel, made more famous, particularly in Liverpool by Gerry, but I guess you already knew that
