Liverpool’s Gerry Marsden in pictures through the ages

Gerry and the Pacemakers, a hit in the 1960s Merseybeat scene, completed sell-out tours around the world.


Gerry And The Pacemakers star Gerry Marsden has died at the age of 78.

The news was confirmed today that he died after a short illness.

Gerry And The Pacemakers, a hit in the 1960s Merseybeat scene, completed sell-out tours around the world.

Just like The Beatles they came from Liverpool, they were managed by Brian Epstein, and they were produced by George Martin.

The bands first three singles went straight to number one ‘How Do You Do It’, ‘I like it’ and of course the song that is now Liverpool FC’s official anthem ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone.

Here we look at the Merseybeat legend’s life through photographs.
