BBC Manchester’s Mike Shaft paid tribute to Dougie and said: “He played all over the north west, in those days when they were playing places like Golden Garter they’d have bands on, an American band and then Dougie James.

“Wonderful guy, always a smile on his face. Always a happy story. Very sad news.”
