Bailey was brought into the world in Belfast, and when he was youthful, his folks emigrated to Brisbane, Australia. He shaped the Saints in the mid-1970s with Ed Kuepper and Ivor Hay.
Following the arrival of the “(I’m) Stranded” single in 1976, the band’s introduction collection (I’m) Stranded showed up in 1977. It was continued one after another by 1978’s Prehistoric Sounds and Eternally Yours.
Chris Bailey Cause Of Death
He died Naturally.
“It is with great pain in our hearts that we have to inform you about the passing of Chris Bailey, singer and songwriter of The Saints, on April the 9th 2022,” the statement said.
On Monday Kuepper, who left the band in 1978 after musical disagreements with Bailey, expressed his sadness at Bailey’s death, saying the pair had “an extremely strong artistic partnership” and he “couldn’t have hoped for a better singer”.
The Saints were the center of the Australian troublemaker scene during the 1970s – however, police went to the band’s Brisbane shows and captured crowd individuals and performers, prompting their appointments to dissipate.
(I’m) Stranded is viewed as one of the most compelling troublemaker melodies ever. In a special video for the single’s UK rerelease, the INXS frontman, Michael Hutchence, credited the band for making the sound that prompted the quick ascent of the Sex Pistols.
