Musician Cy Tucker dies from coronavirus aged 76… with the rocker, who played with The Beatles, believed to be the first person to pass away from the virus in Liverpool

Musician Cy Tucker, 76, who previously played with The Beatles, has died from coronavirus.

The Liverpool Echo reports that the rocker fell ill with symptoms a week ago before dying at the Royal Liverpool Hospital. 

He is believed to be the first person to die of the fatal virus in Liverpool. It was confirmed that he had previously suffered with ill health, including heart problems and diabetes, and due to his age was considered to be at high risk of the virus.

Way back when: Musician Cy Tucker, 76, who previously played with The Beatles (pictured), has died from coronavirus.

Speaking to the Echo, Cy’s family said: ‘As a family we are devastated at the sudden loss of our husband, father-in-law, grandad, brother and friend who touched so many lives through music.

‘To the city of Liverpool he was Cy Tucker, but to us he was our world. He forever doted on his family, especially his wife, children and grandchildren, who he always showered with affection.

‘He had a smile that could light up the darkest of rooms and his witty personality would charm all he came across.’ 

Despite the pain and sadness, we have been comforted by the endless amount of messages we have received from those who watched him perform in many of Liverpool’s pubs and clubs for over 60 years.

‘Performing on stage, be it big or small, was his great passion and he would never be afraid to get up and sing, even on family holidays.’
