It was assumed he died a multi-millionaire until his family revealed he was living on a £150-a-week state pension. Ginger, whose real name is Peter, was once voted the man least likely to live through the 1960s.

Ginger, whose only tour demands were “two prostitutes and a limo,” was addicted to heroin and booze for years, gave his 15-year-old son cocaine, and had sex with his daughter’s friends. He died in October 2019 at the age of 80, having been born poor in Lewisham, South East London.
