It is with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Robert Young at the end of May.
I first saw Robert at the Floral Hall, Scarborough in the early 70’s and after hearing his fantastic voice I became a dedicated fan from that moment on. I saw, and met, Robert at the Aquarius in Chesterfield many times, and saw him at other venues over the years including Scarborough, Blackpool, Manchester, and even at our village garden party in Derbyshire. His wondrous voice and lovely personality, always having time for his fans, is something we will never forget about Robert.
His memory and his music will live in our hearts forever, and we will continue to keep on this website in memory of one of Britain’s greatest singers.
Rest in Peace Robert, and may you sing with the angels until we meet again.
For many years we knew that our beloved " Robert Young" was ill and hospitalised. But nevertheless his death was sad news for us. Our thoughts are in the first place with his son "Robert Young junior " and the rest of his family.
I was his number one fan in Belgium since his first performance in Belgium in 1973 and I will never forget this fantastic singer with a voice like an angel and most of all a voice with love, power and emotion .
I had the chance to see him live again, a year later and from that moment he was, with Mario Lanza one of the best voices in this world.
It is sad that we never got a CD from him with his best songs, but I hope that Alan Walsh and Robert Young junior could make some efforts to bring a CD from Robert Young on the market. I am sure that it would be a great hit.
Robert, now you are singing, I am sure, in heaven for the other angels together with your idol Mario Lanza.
We will never forget you Robert, and I am sure that all your fans will do everything to keep your memory alive.
Robert, rest in peace.
