Dave Higgs from Eddie and Hot Rods RIP
Dave Higgs the man who formed the key band Eddie And the Hot Rods has died.
Formerly in the Fix with Dr. Feelgood singer Lee Brilleaux, Higgs put the band together as a charged up younger version of the pub rock scene that was raging in the smokey bars at the time.
The band precursed punk with their adrenalised take on Rn B but were sort of swamped by it but still had their biggest hit with the eternal classic Do Anything You Wanna Do which was a big hit in 1977. They still had a big following in the late seventies with their fast and energised music and several of their songs have become standards.
