Today brought with it some sad news; Lynsey de Paul has died of a suspected brain haemorrhage, aged 64.
de Paul will be best known to our readers as one half of the duo that represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 1977, held that year in London following Brotherhood of Man’s win in the previous year. She sung “Rock Bottom” together with Mike Moran and finished as the runner-up in the contest.
She was also known as the first woman to win an Ivor Novello award for excellence in songwriting, and for having five Top 20 hits in the United Kingdom.
