Boney M’s Bobby Farrell: RIP

Bobby Farrell of Boney M is heading to the great glitterball in the sky after being found dead in his St Petersburg hotel room, aged 61. Farrell was the only male member of the iconic 1970s disco group.

In a turn of events that’ll get conspiracy theorists working overtime, Farrell died on the same date and in the same city as Russian ‘Mad Monk’ Rasputin, the subject of one of Boney M’s biggest hits.

Farrell was found in his room this morning, after performing last night in St Petersburg. His agent John Seine said earlier: “He did not feel well last night, and was having problems with his breathing, but he did the show anyway.”

It has been well documented that Farrell didn’t provide the male vocals in Boney M’s disco classics — but he sure made up for it with these dance moves…

  • Boney M are the best personally i really cherish their music to the fullest. All their music are intriguing even in the 21 century, my best tracks are rivers of babylon, mary’s boy child, plantation boy and brown girl in the ring
