Bernard William Jewry (27 September 1942 – 23 October 2014), known as Alvin Stardust, was an English pop singer and stage actor. Performing first as Shane Fenton, Stardust's stage and screen career spanned over a half-century. He is best known for singles released in the 1970s and 1980s, including "My Coo Ca Choo", the UK Singles Chart-topper "Jealous Mind", and "I Feel Like Buddy Holly".
He died at his home. His wife, Julie Paton, and his family were with him.
Last month he completed his first studio album for thirty years, entitled 'Alvin' it is scheduled for release on 3rd of November. Alvin was incredibly proud of this album saying rather propehtically that he would die happy having made the album, as it was his best piece of work.
Manager Andy Davies said, "Alvin and I had only started working together over the last couple of years because he and I believed that musically he still had a great deal to give and explore and so we recorded an album that is a testament to an artist who gave his career to music. I may not have known him long but even in that short time he proved to be one of the most genuine and likeable men I've ever met; his passing is a huge and sad loss".
