He's obscure as all get-out so it may be a while before an "official" obit comes out, esp. as he died on May 1st, but here is what I;ve seen so far.

He's not obscure at all - I've heard of him. He hit the Hot 100 3 times (never a big hit however). He recorded the original "There's Always Something There To Remind Me" which was later a big hit for Naked Eyes (NT)RussTuesday, May 07, 02:48:35pm
