The late, great, talented and troubled Graham Brazier is laid to rest today in Auckland; remember him in this interview and video clip of Billy Bold - arguably his best-known track as a solo artist, but it didn’t garner much radio play when released in 1981. Instead it went on to become a staple of Hello Sailor live sets. The ballad is based on the infamous 1981 riots in Toxteth, Liverpool and came to Brazier in a dream; he was drawn to the topic because his working class father came from Liverpool.
