Darryl Gatwick Hunt(C 64-68)

It is with great sadness that the Club announces the death on 10th August of Darryl Hunt, musician and songwriter.


Darryl was born in Hampshire on 4th May, 1950 and came to Allhallows in 1964. He was a member of the Sports Club, Film Club, Tennis Club and Gramophone Society but it will always be his sessions in The Grott for which he will be remembered.


After leaving Allhallows he joined the pub rock band Plummet Airlines and The Favourites before he began playing bass guitar in the Celtic inspired band The Pogues in 1986. He was involved in their 1988 album 'If I Should Fall From Grace With God' which featured the classic Christmas hit 'Fairy Tale of New York'. Darryl continued to feature in the band's material until their last album, 'Pogue Mahone' in 1996.  He has writing credits on a number of the band's songs including 'Love You 'Till The End'.


The Club extends its condolences to Darryl's family, friends and fans.


"I know you want to hear my breath/ I love you 'till the end."
