Eric Haydock has passed away at the age of 75.
A message from Bobby Elliott.
In the early 1960s Eric was one of the finest bass players on the planet.
Along with Tony, Eric and I were the rhythm section that created the springboard for Clarke, Hicks and Nash to launch that famous three-way Hollies harmony.
On the early package tours, Dave Clark, the Kinks and artists of the period would watch from the wings as we effortlessly rocked the screaming theatre audiences into a frenzy.
Although Eric left the Hollies in 1966, I occasionally listen enthralled by our BBC and Abbey Road recording sessions and dear Eric masterfully playing his six string bass.
