Boney M Lead Singer Died

Bobby_Farrell.jpgBobby Farrell, the lead singer of ’70s chart-top band Boney M, has died. He passed away at age 61, while he was on tour in Russia.

Farrell’s agent, John Seine, said the star was found dead on Thursday morning, in his hotel room in St. Petersburg, by hotel staff after he didn’t respond to a wake-up call.

His agent also said Farrell performed, according to his schedule, on Wednesday night, but complained of breathing problems before and after the show.

Farrell, who was born Alfonso Farrell in Aruba and lived in Amsterdam, was the lead singer of the group called Bobby Farrell and Boney M, which had three women as backup singers.

The original Boney M — which was based in Germany — dissolved in 1986 after scoring Europe-wide hits with Daddy Cool and By the Rivers Of Babylon.
