Barry Sinclair R.I.P.




Mrs Franky Brooker sends the following bulletin to 'Beyond the Pale'.


I have the regret of telling you that Barry Sinclair, our dear friend, died yesterday, 27  March 2023, of a heart attack at home.

He will be sadly missed. Barry was such a great help when Chris Cooke passed away;  he took over looking after Procol Harum till Gary also passed away, a year ago now.

They knew each other from school days and now they are in the great void with so many other artists who have left us in the past year.

Barry will be remembered also for his humour, his passion for Hornby trains -- as with Gary -- and his devotion to his wife, Gail.


As Iím looking out the window I see blossoms on trees butmy heart once more is broken.

With love to you all,




Roland Clare's tribute to Barry Sinclair
