Ernest Ballard… Sad news such a lovely voice. RIP
Tony Davis… Really sad news. I have always enjoyed Peter’s music and consider him to be a really under-rated singer/songwriter. His first album is one of my favourite albums of all time and often gets played now. His thoroughly English whimsical approach, which seems to stem from the British Raj in India, made him one of a kind. I always regret that I never got to see him perform a full gig. R.I.P Peter you will be missed.
Alan Esdaile… R.I.P. Peter Sarstedt.
Colin Norton… RIP Peter.
Dennis Torrance… Rest in peace Peter.
Andy Ives… Rest peacefully. Very sad news. Singer-songwriter Peter Sarstedt, best known for the 1969 chart-topper Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?, has died aged 75. According to the BBC, Sarstedt’s family confirmed that he passed away peacefully following a six-year battle against Progressive Supernuclear Palsy.
Candy Clarke… Omg God really?
Graham Belchamber… A post pub favourite song!
Colin Bell… Even though I knew this was coming I’m deeply sad that Peter has passed away. I knew him for many years and was privy to his illness before it became public knowledge. He was a supremely talented singer/songwriter who wrote some of the most beautiful and haunting songs. He was also a genuine, warm, funny, witty and lovely man. He did a live set on Hastings Rock with me and we did gigs together. I was at Chatham in 2010 when he did his last tour and will remember the laughter we had backstage after the gig. My thoughts are with his partner Jill, his brothers Clive and Richard and all his family and friends. R.I.P Peter you’ll be greatly missed.
Pete Fisher… RIP Peter Sarstedt…Where Do You Go To My Lovely was one of the first songs I mastered on guitar…I would have been 13 when it came out, and bought the sheet music/chord tabs and spent hours practising it in my bedroom on my newly-acquired 12-string…
Iain Cobby… RIP Peter Sarstedt. Saw you live with your brothers at the White Rock Theater some years ago. Like many artists that are asked to sing their big hit, he corpsed when it came around to Where do you go to. We all helped out, it was magic. What a talented man ………..and family. Was on BBC just the other night with other stars of the sixties.
