"You'll Never Walk Alone" and "Ferry Cross The Mersey" are such iconic songs.
Gerry’s version of "You’ll Never Walk Alone" re-entered the charts in March this year at the start of lockdown, after he encouraged people to sing it from their doorsteps during the weekly Clap for our Carers. Captain Tom Moore then topped the charts in April with the same song to raise money for health service charities.
Hard to not see the Mersey without "Ferry Cross The Mersey" going through your head.
I'm going to say this once, and once only Gene. Stay out of Camberwick Green!

Very sad news indeed. The songs Gerry was best known for were indeed iconic. You'd have to have a heart of stone not to be a little moved by Gerry singing YNWA. I believe he will be remembered with great affection especially by the people in his home city.
This is sad news indeed. I saw Gerry in 2018 on his last uk tour. He was part of a bill of 60s and 70s stars on a Gold radio gig. Gerry was in fine form not only on his songs but interacting with the audience throughout. RIP Gerry
