Wee Willie Harris, 90, has passed away.

The rock and roll superstar, true name Charles William Harris, died on Thursday, according to his widow.

Other musicians, including John Lennon and Paul McCartney of the Beatles, were said to have been inspired by the music star. Paul even included Willie in his memoirs, recalling waiting outside the Liverpool Empire for his signature.

Willie became renowned and liked for his vivid pink hair and aggressive stage and television appearances, earning him the moniker “Britain’s wild man of rock and roll.” He was also known as Wee Willie Harris owing to his tiny size of 5 feet 2 inches.

He also collaborated with a number of artists, including Dusty Springfield, who first did background vocals for him before starting her own music career.

His wife of 47 years, Shelia, told The Sun: “He was a lovely man. A lovely husband. But it was music all the way with him.
