Pop singer Dave Dee dies aged 65

British pop star Dave Dee has died at the age of 65, following a three-year battle with cancer. The singer continued playing gigs with his band - Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich - until near to the end of his life, record plugger Sean Cooney said. "He didn't let it get him down.
