New Zealand Rocker Graham Brazier Has Died, Aged 63.
The Hello Sailor passed away in a rehab centre in his native Auckland after suffering a heart attack in August (15), which forced his band to scrap reunion tour plans.
The Blue Lady hitmaker had battled drug abuse for years.
Rumours suggested he was once in talks to replace Jim Morrison as the frontman of The Doors following the enigmatic singer's death.
Brazier's passing comes two years after the death of bandmate Dave MCArtney.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
