TODAY we look back at photographs of a Sixties legend during his numerous visits to Brighton.

Born Terence “Terry” Nelhams-Wright, Adam Faith was a teen idol who shot to super stardom in 1959 following the success of his debut single, What Do You Want?

He visited Sussex numerous times over the course of his career and loved Brighton in particular, paying visits to the city to see his close friend and colleague, the singer-songwriter and record producer David Courtney.

He bought Warren House in the 1970s from Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, living for many years in the Grade II listed 18th century mansion which overlooks Ashdown Forest, home of Winnie the Pooh.

In 1972, working in music management, he discovered Leo Sayer in Shoreham and, with his friend Mr Courtney, helped make him a big star.

The following year, Faith had a lucky escape in West Sussex after a car crash which nearly cost him his life.

He later described it as the turning point of his singing career.

Having already established himself as a film actor, he returned to acting the following year, playing a role alongside David Essex in Stardust.

In the 1980s, Faith reinvented himself again, this time as a financial adviser.

He wrote regularly for the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday but soon found himself facing financial problems after making poor investment decisions.

He was declared bankrupt in 2002.

Faith returned to Brighton in 1992 when a production he was part of came to the Theatre Royal.

Do you remember the name of this show. and the part he played?

Faith passed away in 2003 from heart failure aged just 62, leaving behind a musical legacy and a deep connection with Sussex.

He had such a strong link with Brighton that two of the city’s buses had his name printed on them.
