timsmith....Another great and good songster gone sadly.Where did all those years go? I believe Billy Taylor died yesterday as well. Its been a really sad year with the deaths of many musicians.

I hope there's a tribute programme of Boney M and Billy Taylor music.

Very sad. 61 is young to die suddenly. I agree that it would be nice to have tribute programmes for the music. I found myself watching films like ET because it the music reminds me of the brass bands when we lived near the sea. Mary Poppins was good for some of the music, too.
It would be good to have a Boney M concert.

I think the words "Boney M mimer" are more accurate - the producer sang Bobby's parts on the records...

Boney M were big in Germany when I lived there in the '70's. I saw them live 3 times over a six year period. Even then, Bobby was lip synching on stage. I don't know who was actually singing, but it was so obvious. They were great favourites with the German public, and their concerts were excellent.

as alan14 said,Farrell was a fake,he was a dancer who was glad to take the credit for the singing voice of Frank Farian who also produced the 'Boney M' recordings.
