Sadly, The Hollies early bass player has passed away at the age of 75.

Here is a message from Bobby Elliott.

Eric Haydock

In the early 1960's Eric was one of the finest bass players on the planet.

Along with Tony, Eric and I were the rhythm section that created the springboard for Clarke Hicks and Nash to launch that famous three-way Hollies harmony.

On the early package tours, Dave Clark, the Kinks and artists of the period would watch from the wings as we effortlessly rocked the screaming theatre audiences into a frenzy.

Although Eric left the Hollies in 1966, I occasionally listen enthralled by our BBC and Abbey Road recording sessions and dear Eric masterfully playing his six string bass.

Happy days

Hollies drummer Bobby Elliott

Dear Eric

You were one of the first Hollies and I remember seeing you smiling away playing your bass in the film clip Just One Look. It was one of the clips played on the show The Sixties, which showed clips of old groups. Even though I'd always had general interest in 60's music, that clip was what made me a hug Hollies fan.

Just One Look was all it took.

Rest in Peace. My condolences to your family.

Love Christine
