Happy Birthday Gordon Haskell! – Born April 27, 1946

Happy Birthday Gordon Haskell. April 27th is a great day for you.

Gordon Haskell (born April 27, 1946, in Verwood, England) is an English musician and songwriter. A pop, rock and blues vocalist, guitarist, and bassist, he was a school friend of King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp, the two first working together in Fripp’s mid-1960s teenage group The League of Gentlemen (not to be confused with Fripp’s later new wave beat band). Haskell first gained recognition as bass player for the British band Les Fleur de Lys, and subsequently spent a short period in King Crimson, singing one of the songs on their second album and both singing and playing bass on their third album. After departing from King Crimson, he continued his musical career as a solo musician, finally gaining international recognition in 2001 with his hit song How Wonderful You Are.
