Famous Births and Deaths on this day in history


Births


            


1947 – John Foxx

John Foxx (born Dennis Leigh) is an English singer, artist, photographer and teacher. He was the original lead singer of the band Ultravox, before leaving to embark on a solo career (with Midge Ure eventually taking his place in Ultravox). Primarily associated with electronic synthesizer music, he has also pursued a parallel career in graphic design and education.

Andy Kellman of AllMusic noted that Foxx “was one of those cult figures known more through the recordings of others rather than those of his own making. His detached, jolting vocal style inspired mainstream and underground artists across the decades, from synth pop superstar Gary Numan to electro-techno duo Adult”.

Age 70


1963 – Lysette Anthony

Lysette Chodzko known professionally as Lysette Anthony, is an English actress and model. She is perhaps best known for her roles in the Woody Allen film Husbands and Wives (1992), the first series of the ITV comedy-drama series Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, the BBC sitcom Three Up, Two Down and her role as Marnie Nightingale in Hollyoaks.

Age 54


1969 – Andy Petterson

Andrew Keith Petterson is a former Australian football player who last played for ECU Joondalup in the Western Australian premier league. He became the club’s Technical Director in 2013 as part of the club’s acceptance into National Premier Leagues WA. He has a daughter Ellen Petterson (1992) and son Cameron Petterson (1996).

Petterson played 34 times for Portsmouth between 1998 – 2001

Age 48


1985 – Talulah Riley

Deaths



1993 – Robert Palmer

Born: 19 January 1949

Robert Allen Palmer was an English singer-songwriter, musician, and record producer. He was known for his distinctive, soulful voice, eclectic mix of musical styles on his albums, combining soul, jazz, rock, pop, reggae, blues, and sartorial acumen. He found success both in his solo career and with the Power Station, and had Top 10 songs in both the UK and the US.

His iconic music videos directed by British fashion photographer Terence Donovan for the hits “Addicted to Love”, “Simply Irresistible” and “I Didn’t Mean to Turn You On” featured identically dressed dancing women with pale faces, dark-eye makeup and bright-red lipstick, which resembled the women in the art of Patrick Nagel, an artist popular in the 1980s. Palmer’s involvement in the music industry commenced in the 1960s, covered four decades and included a spell with Vinegar Joe. Palmer received a number of awards throughout his career, including two Grammy Awards for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance, an MTV Video Music Award, and two Brit Award nominations for Best British Male.
