A director of Jermyn Street’s famous Tramp nightclub, affable Brian Crawford trained at Kensington’s Royal Garden Hotel and also worked at the Dome and Acanthus in Edinburgh. A charming gent, Crawford kept company with stars such as Michael Caine, Elton John and Rod Stewart but loved to spend weekends with his mother in North Berwick as much nights in the fine company of Cheryl Howard at Blakes Hotel in South Kensington. He and his “naughty sense of humour” will be missed by many.
Sad to hear this news. He always brought laughter wherever he went.
He always brought a smile to my face. RIP Brian.
Never heard of him. Should I have?
Gillian, how unkind and utterly insensitive to those who have lost him.
God bless one of a kind!! R.I.P x
