Cy Tucker, who used to perform with singers The Beatles and Cilla Black, has passed away due to coronavirus. He was 76.
Tucker, the Liverpool rock and roller, passed away on Tuesday after being hit by COVID-19 infection on Saturday after a show, according to reports.
“As a family we are devastated at the sudden loss of our husband, father-in-law, grandad, brother and friend who touched so many lives through music,” the family said in a statement.
The musician was also suffering from heart problems and diabetes, the family members said. “What makes his loss even more heartbreaking is the fact that it could have been so easily avoided had it not been for coronavirus… In less than a week we have gone from having a healthy and energetic man to one who is no longer here,” the family added.
