Surprised that none of the old codgers like me have picked up on the death of Welsh singer Ricky Valence. RIP. He had a massive hit in 1960: Tell Laura I Love Her, about the death of a racing driver.
In the fashion of the time, he ripped off his name from US singer Richie Valens who was rather more talented. He wrote La Bamba and Donna in a brief career that ended in the plane crash which killed Buddy Holly.
