Duke D'Mond (real name Richard Palmer), former lead singer of comedy pop group The Barron Knights, has sadly died at the age of 66.
The group had UK hits in the 1960s, 70s and 80s with satirical songs and parodies of the work of other artists. In their heyday The Barron Knights supported The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
Here is one of their songs from 1979 about the fuel crisis. It’s still relevant today.
