The accordion player Jack Alexander died yesterday aged 85, his brother Tom died just over 6 years ago, bringing the end of an era ~;-

One of my favourites....R.I.P.

And in 1964 they out sold The Beatles with this one :-

A wonderful part of my childhood - many happy memories of waiting for one of them to give their 'whoop' then we'd have to go to bed. I'd have gone to bed early on this one … about 22 seconds in!

Gosh, this takes me back.......The Alexander Brothers, along with the likes of Moira Anderson, Kenneth McKellar & Jimmy Shand. A very different time and place.

RIP

I must admit to yearning to go back at times.

I recall sometime in the 90s they played The Legion in Inverness as part of a nationwide tour.

 

The tour was called the "I bet you thought we were deid" tour.

 

There were posters and everything.

 

RIP fella.

They actually did a pretty splendid cover of "This Land is Your Land" (".....from the English Border to the Western Islands......") but I cannot find a video of same.

Sorry for being pedantic....but it was Tom who died yesterday.

Jack died in 2013.

They were great though...

Thank you. I should have checked, too. I thought it was a bit odd but was sad, anyway, that they were both gone.

Sorry MacBruce, you are of course quite correct, think I got confused trying to sort out the videos.:ph34r:
