Alvin Stardust emerged as an image-conscious pop idol in early-1970s England, mixing glam rock with '50s rock-&-roll influences. His debut album made a huge splash in the . and the self-titled follow-up came just seven months later, but didn't fare nearly as well in the charts. Regardless, it offers a similar musical blend to its predecessor, with ballads like Where She's Gone and rockers like Shake On Little Roller. The tunes were penned mostly by Stardust's producer Peter Shelley (not to be confused with the Buzzcocks leader!) with a little help from the star.

Moving to Mansfield, Nottinghamshire at a young age, he made his stage debut in pantomime at the age of four.

His transformation into Alvin Stardust came about through another bizarre identity-switch. The songwriter and producer Peter Shelley, co-founder of Magnet Records with Michael Levy (now Lord Levy, the former chief fundraiser for the Labour party), had written and recorded My Coo Ca Choo under the invented name Alvin Stardust. He had recently been working on a new album, Alvin, for release this autumn, his first new studio collection since 1984. He is survived by Julie and their daughter Millie; a daughter, Sophie, and stepson, Thom, from his marriage to Goddard; and two sons, Shaun and Adam, from his first marriage, to Iris Caldwell. Alvin Stardust (Bernard William Jewry), singer and actor, born 27 September 1942; died 23 October 2014.
