Wikipedia page for Tim

Although Tim Rose is now probably better known for making "Hey Joe" before Hendrix I had never heard this and 'found' him through "Morning Dew" and "Come away Melinda", two very powerful records. Not the greatest singing voice but very effective.

I've just been reminded (March 2016) that Tim never left a will and the beneficiaries had to be found by a Company of "Heir Hunters". This search was featured on the BBC series "Heir Hunters" (what else) and they did track down his heirs. Sad but it made great television!
