Procol Harum is best known for its anthem A Whiter Shade Of Pale. It's often overlooked that they had a lot more to offer than just one extraordinary song. In fact, the tune 'A Rum Tale' shares some of the elements that made A Whiter Shade Of Pale so famous. The Hammond organ sound, the 12/8 drum part, a stunningly beautiful melody, and the wonderful vocals of Gary Brooker. R.I.P.

Today we heard the sad news that Gary Brooker has died last Saturday, February 19, 2022. Brooker was a great singer and composer. We all remember his 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale' with his group Procol Harum. We remember him on our TopPop channel. Rest in peace, Gary. Gary Brooker, the lead singer of the rock band Procol Harum, whose 1967 hit A Whiter Shade of Pale mesmerised baby boomer fans with its psychedelic melancholy, has died at the age of 76. The pianist, composer and lyricist as well as frontman for the band had been treated for cancer. He died peacefully at home at the weekend. A statement on Procol Harum’s website described Brooker as “a brightly shining, irreplaceable light in the music industry”. It added: “Gary exhibited and developed a highly individual talent. His first single with Procol Harum, 1967’s A Whiter Shade of Pale, is widely regarded as defining the ‘summer of love’, yet it could scarcely have been more different from the characteristic records of that era …. “Gary’s voice and piano were the single defining constant of Procol’s 50-year international concert career. Without any stage antics or other gimmicks he was invariably the most watchable musician in the show.” Gary Brooker, MBE, (29 May 1945-February 19, 2022) is an English singer, songwriter, pianist and founder and lead singer of the rock band Procol Harum. He was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire in the Queen's Birthday Honours on 14 June 2003, in recognition of his charitable services. In 1966, Brooker founded Procol Harum with his friend Keith Reid. "A Whiter Shade of Pale" was the worldwide hit for which Procol Harum is best known, but Brooker's melancholic vocals and emotive, eclectic piano playing were a key part of Procol's musical mix for the entire course of the band's career. In the early years Brooker, Hammond organist Matthew Fisher and Trower were the guiding musical forces behind the band, but after disparities in style became too much and Fisher and Trower left, Brooker was the clear leader until the band broke up in 1977. Brooker started a solo career and released the album 'No More Fear of Flying' in 1979.

Procol Harum singer and pianist Gary Brooker dies aged 76 Procol Harum frontman Gary Brooker, who led the band throughout their 55-year history, and co-wrote and sang their 1967 classic “A Whiter Shade of Pale,” died at his home from cancer on Saturday, Feb. 19. He was 76. “He lit up any room he entered, and his kindness to a multilingual family of fans was legendary,” Procol Harum wrote in a group statement. “He was notable for his individuality, integrity, and occasionally stubborn eccentricity. His mordant wit, and appetite for the ridiculous, made him a priceless raconteur (and his surreal inter-song banter made a fascinating contrast with the gravitas of Procol Harum’s performances).” Brooker is best known for his work in Procol Harum, but he also toured heavily with Eric Clapton and Ringo Starr, and recorded with Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and countless other legends #procolharum #procolharumlastvideo #procolharumdead #procolharundeathnews #garybrooker #garybrookerprocolharum #procolharunnews
This is perhaps the best rendition of the famous song of the 60's band, Procol Harum. It was performed in concert with the Danish National Concert Orchestra and Choir. The intro with orchestra rather than the iconic organ was a great surprise, perhaps an acknowledgment of Bach's Air on the G String root of the song. Though I miss the organ intro, I like the fact that it allowed Brooker to dictate the speed and the flow of the song in the first verse. With a more mature and now somewhat raspy voice, Brooker meandered freely through the first verse, evoking a rowdy night in the bar on a ship. It's pure magic and capturing.

Procol Harum - Homburg // Denmark - 2006 Procol Harum: Gary Brooker, Keith Reid, Matthew Fisher, Robin Trower... Your multilingual business friend has packed her bags and fled Leaving only ash-filled ashtrays and the lipsticked unmade bed The mirror on reflection has climbed back upon the wall for the floor she found descended and the ceiling was too tall Your trouser cuffs are dirty and your shoes are laced up wrong you'd better take off your homburg 'cos your overcoat is too long The town clock in the market square stands waiting for the hour when its hands they both turn backwards and on meeting will devour both themselves and also any fool who dares to tell the time And the sun and moon will shatter and the signposts cease to sign
Gary Brooker was an English singer and pianist, and the founder and lead singer of the rock band Procol Harum. Born in Hackney Hospital, East London, on 29 May 1945, Brooker grew up in Hackney before the family moved out to Middlesex (Bush Hill Park and then to nearby Edmonton).
Gary Brooker, who co-founded and led the English rock band Procol Harum, has died. The group announced the news on its website Tuesday (February 22), writing that Brooker had died peacefully at home amid cancer treatment. “He lit up any room he entered, and his kindness to a multilingual family of fans was legendary,” his bandmates wrote. Gary Brooker was 76. Procol Harum were best known for their debut 1967 single “A Whiter Shade of Pale,” which became an anthem for the exploding counterculture movement. Brooker had established the group with Keith Reid, Ray Royer, David Knights, and Matthew Fisher, having been a busy presence in Britain’s early 1960s rock scene. After the early success of “A Whiter Shade of Pale,” the band remained an influential force on other up-and-coming British rock groups, including the Who and Queen. The band ultimately issued more than a dozen albums. Outside of Procol Harum, Brooker remained a regular collaborator, appearing on George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass, Somewhere in England, and Gone Troppo, later touring with Ringo Starr’s All-Starr Band in the 1990s. He performed as a member of Eric Clapton’s band for a spell, too, including on 1981’s Another Ticket, but left the group that year. He also made appearances on Kate Bush’s The Red Shoes (1993) and Aerial (2005). Brooker issued three solo albums—No More Fear of Flying, Lead Me to the Water, and Echoes in the Night—between 1979 and 1986. Procol Harum officially dissolved in 1977 after their LP Something Magic, but the band periodically reunited for tours and other appearances over the subsequent decades. The group issued another album, The Prodigal Son, in 1991, followed by The Well’s on Fire in 2003. Procol Harum’s most recent release was 2017’s Novum, where Brooker was the only remaining member of the original lineup still in the band.

John Lennon based a song on the Communist Manifesto, Gary Brooker wore Chinese costumes on stage, and Mick Jagger invited a famous Maoist on stage. Nury discusses the Western fascination with Chinese culture in the late 1960s and early 1970s in this five minute video. He also tries some face-changing software to "become" Lennon and Brooker as he sings their songs! There's also an interesting link between the subject of Brooker's "A Whiter Shade of Pale" (over indulgence and being sick!) and the topics favored by top Chinese poets Li Bai and Du Fu, who liked to write about the same thing. This video was made in memory of Gary Brooker, who died recently.

Singer-songwriter Gary Brooker, best known for the 1967 single "A Whiter Shade of Pale" as part of British rock band Procol Harum, has died at the age of 76, his representative confirmed to Wednesday.A statement on a fan website, procolharum.com, said the musician had been undergoing treatment for cancer but "died peacefully at home" on Saturday. Brooker's representative, Wayne Forte, told the statement had been approved by Brooker's family. "Gary's voice and piano were the single defining constant of Procol's fifty-year international concert career," the statement said. "Without any stage antics or other gimmicks he was invariably the most watchable musician in the show." Gary Brooker performs with Procol Harum at the RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest on July 10, 2014 in Ottawa, Canada. Brooker co-wrote Procol Harum's first single, "A Whiter Shade of Pale," the same year he co-founded the band with lyricist Keith Reid. It became one of the defining songs of the "Summer of Love." The single spent six weeks at the top of the UK Singles Chart, and peaked at number five on the US Billboard Hot 100. It remains one of the few singles to have sold more than 10 million physical copies.Brooker also released three studio albums as a solo artist, including his 1979 debut "No More Fear of Flying" and the 1985 "Echoes in the Night," though these did not reach the same commercial heights as Procol Harum's output.Dave Grohl says he's been reading lips because of hearing lossHe also collaborated with other artists, including Paul McCartney and George Harrison, and played, wrote and sang for Eric Clapton's band and Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, the statement said. Procol Harum disbanded in 1977 but reunited in 1991, although Brooker remained its only constant member. He continued performing with the band until 2019 and was a member until his death.Several prominent figures in the music industry paid tribute to Brooker, with musician Billy Joel saying on Twitter he was "sorry to hear" about Brooker's passing, while collaborator Ringo Starr wrote, "God bless Gary Brooker peace and love to the family.""Gary was a master of song," British musician Cat Stevens wrote on Twitter, saying they had begun working for the same label in 1966 and last collaborated on a concert in 2020. "God bless him with a brighter shade of peace."
