That's right that's right that's right he's having a dirt nap tonight... That's neat that's neat that's neat he'll be buried up to his feet.... Mud`s lead singer dies LONDON (Reuters) - Chart topper Les Gray, lead singer of 1970s pop band Mud, has died from a heart attack in Portugal only a week before he was due to make a comeback for charity, a spokeswoman says. He was 57. "He died on Saturday in Portugal from a heart attack after a long battle with cancer," said Caroline McFarlan, founder of KidsCharities UK. "Les was due to take part in a charity show in Glasgow alongside some other great acts of the 70s but now we`re going to turn the show into a tribute to him," she said on Monday. Formed in 1966 with Gray as its frontman, Mud blended a lightweight mix of rockabilly and pop and scored more than 10 top 20 UK hits in the 1970s, including number ones "Tiger Feet", "Lonely This Christmas" and "Oh Boy".
