Subject: Dominic Grant (of Guys & Dolls) Gone At 71

Written By: Henk on 11/21/20 at 1:54 am

It's been announced that Dominic Grant has suddenly died of an aneurism last Wednesday, at the age of 71.
Grant was best known for his involvement in Guys & Dolls, a vocal sextet that had a couple of hits in the UK and abroad in the mid-1970's/early 1980's.

Among those hits were There's A Whole Lot Of Loving (UK #2 / NL #7) and You Don't Have To Say You Love Me (UK #5 / NL #10).
In The Netherlands, Guys & Dolls also scored a #1 hit with You're My World.

In 1978, Thereze Bazar and David Van Day left Guys & Dolls to form Dollar.
The remaining four members moved to The Netherlands, where they remained successful, until the final break-up in 1985.

Dominic Grant and his wife Julie Forsyth (daughter of Bruce) continued to perform as a duo (Grant & Forsyth), with a move towards country & western-style music. They remained popular in The Netherlands, where they had a solid fan base.

Dominic Grant also tried a solo career, but that was short-lived. His only claim to fame in that department is I Won't Let Me Down, which peaked at #17 in the Netherlands.

Apart from his singing career, Grant also worked as a talented sculptor. He is survived by his wife Julie, their son and daughter and their recently born grandchild.

Hopefully their genre of schmaltz rock will return some day for a long overdue encore.
