Bobby Farrell Has Died

Bobby Farrell, the lead singer of Boney M, the chart-topping 70s group, has died while on tour in Russia aged 61, his agent says.

Farrell was found dead in his hotel room in St Petersburg by hotel staff after he failed to respond to a wake-up call. Farrell performed as scheduled on Wednesday night, but complained of breathing problems before and after his show.

He was leading a group called Bobby Farrell and Boney M, with three women back-up singers.

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

Farrell was born Alfonso Farrell in Aruba and lived in Amsterdam.
