Further information is proving hard to come by, but it appears that Emile Ford, who with the Checkmates had a number one with 'What do you want to make those eyes at me for' died on 11th April. That's the date Wiki has recorded for him - though I haven't seen a single UK obit for the man behind 1959's Christmas number one.

Latest on Tommy Fuckitt:

 

 
After 25 days at Jackson Memorial, Thomas is going home where he can be more comfortable. He will have around the clock nursing care and be continuing the treatments he had been receiving at the hospital. For the past few weeks, he has been battling internal bleeding and an aggressive infection within his abdomen. Because he is not a candidate for invasive surgery to treat these issues directly, he is being administered a rigorous regimen of IV and oral medications to combat what's going on. Not having been permitted to eat for a month, he's just now able to start on some mild shakes and smoothies in the hopes to supplement his IV nutrition and bulk him back up so he can walk again. This has been a true test of his patience and endurance, both of which he is blowing us away with. His unparalleled drive and lust for life are undoubtedly what keeps him going each day. The last month has left his body very weakened, and he has a long way to go before he is ready for more immunotherapy, but we are giving him all the tools and care here at home to turn things around and continue to keep us all in awe.

Jim Sundquist of The Fendermen died on Tuesday at the age of 75.
The Fendermen's biggest hit was Mule Skinner Blues, a cover of the Jimmie Rodgers hit from 1930

 
The other half of the duo, Phil Humphrey, has now died at 78. http://host.madison....0f4f696e64.html
 
I knew several people who performed on the same bill as The Fendermen over the years who will be saddened by this.

They're alive?! Please post a list of these people in the Possibilities thread ty in advance

Yes they're alive and no I won't.
