Terry Black, 1949-2009. R.I.P.

Terry Black, a Canadian singer from Vancouver who managed to sneak on the American charts during the height of Beatlemania at the age of 15 with the song "Unless You Care", died on Saturday of multiple sclerosis. He was 60.

Black later became one half of the husband and wife duo of Black & Ward. They met while part of the Toronto cast of the Broadway musical Hair in 1969. In recent years, Black was back in Vancouver where he hosted a oldies radio show every week night and continued to do so despite his illness. He was playing the music he loved.
