A great singer and friend died today: Gerry McGhee, lead vocalist for Brighton Rock.

Although I toured with Gerry during the 80’s, what I really remember him for is how he treated me when I first started selling my own records.

By that time it was the late 90’s…times were tough for both HELIX and Brighton Rock, but Gerry was smart enough, resourceful enough, and worked hard enough to establish ISOTOPE RECORDS in Burlington. ISOTOPE worked as a distributor of CDs to Europe and around the world. Gerry had become quite wealthy with his company. Meanwhile, Helix had lost it’s major record deal with Capitol/E.M.I., then Aquarius, and then it was us on our own. I was struggling financially. Lynda and I worked 7 days a week to pay the bills.

When I first started doing my own indie CDs Gerry would buy them from me and distribute them to Europe. It was a hard game for me; sometimes I’d be shipping CDs to distributors (or they said they were) and I’d have to wait for payment. The only two guys who would pay me as soon as I delivered the CDs were Tom Mathers of Perris Records and Gerry. Gerry would actually go down to the bank with me and co-sign the check so the bank would cash it and give it to me on the spot. That’s how desperate I was for cash at that time. If Gerry sensed that (and I’m sure he did) he never let on. I had so much respect for him because of that.

They say the good die young. I’m in shock right now-this has happened so unexpectedly. Gerry kept this a big secret ‘cos he obviously didn’t want to go out with a lot of fanfare. That’s just how he lived life-humble and low key. Gonna miss ya buddy. Sorry we never went for that meal we’ve been talking about for a year. We’ll break bread when I meet ya on the other side.

RIP – Gerry McGhee. Canadian rockers knew him as the singer for Brighton Rock. I got to work with him in business when his import/export business Isotope was just taking off from a small industrial unit in Mississauga. He and I cut a deal to distribute my Bullseye catalog overseas. It got us into Australia, Europe, and the Pacific Rim. He was always up front and walked me through the landmines with retail in other territories. He was also fair and paid on time and let me know if our product was sub-par for those markets. A true gentleman in a business full of snakes. My deepest condolences to his wife and daughters, his bandmates, and the many industry people he was loved by.

Very saddened to have just heard the news that Gerry McGhee, from the band Brighton Rock, just passed away from cancer. I was fortunate enough to have seen Brighton Rock perform twice and met every band member. Awesome bunch of guys. I chatted with Gerry a few times and he was a great man. I love their music and the fun they had on stage. They were from the Niagara Falls area I believe. BR will be my playlist along with still some Quiet Riot for the next couple of weeks. “We Came To Rock” probably their most known song and they did just that. Mr. Mistreater is one of my favourites.

Lost another talent…Canada’s Brighton Rock vocalist Gerry Mcghee.
RIP
Always been a fan and was looking forward to a new album after hearing last years new single end of time
