    The Stranglers keyboard player Dave Greenfield has died at the age of 71 after testing positive for Covid-19.

    Greenfield died on Sunday having contracted the virus after a prolonged stay in hospital for heart problems.

    He penned the band's biggest hit, Golden Brown, a song about heroin, which went to number two on the UK singles chart in 1982.

    The Stranglers bass player Jean-Jacques "JJ" Burnel paid tribute to Greenfield as a "musical genius".

    He said: "On the evening of Sunday May 3rd, my great friend and longstanding colleague of 45 years, the musical genius that was Dave Greenfield, passed away as one of the victims of the Great Pandemic of 2020.
