Lead singer of The Foundations:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-39410011

Originally a Ska/Reggae/ band called 'The Ramongs' fronted by two lead singers, they lived in a basement club & former gambling den called 'The Butterfly Club', sometimes not surfacing for several days. When someone suggested a name change for the band, their Guitarist Alan Warner came up with the name 'The Foundations' to go with the Tamla Motown/soul style of music that they were getting more into.

The Ramong Sound:

RIP

I would have thought that the Foundations would have got their name because if the were living in a basement club, then they were surrounded by the foundations...

Great voice, RIP CC.
