The Ten Biggest Hits of Gerry & the Pacemakers

Gerry Marsden, the lead singer of Gerry & the Pacemakers, died earlier today (January 3, 2021) after suffering a heart infection.  

Born in Liverpool, he formed Gerry & the Pacemakers in 1959.  They later became the second group signed by Brian Epstein and had their first U.K. number 1 with How Do You Do It? in mid-1963.  They didn't break in the U.S. until the next year where they had five top twenty hits.
