Just got a call on the phone that Suzie Watson passed away this week. The cause is still unknown. Suzie was born Maria Pereboom in Holland 1946 and moved to Sweden in the early 60's and was support act for The Beatles back then. She married bassist Mike Watson of The Lee Kings and had a daughter, Rose-Marie, born 1966. She had some success in Germany as well and her biggest hit was Johnny Loves Me and a cover of Helen Shapiros Walking Back To Happiness. 1985 she moved to the northern part of Sweden. She was a friend of mine and last time I talked to her was a month ago when she called to say that there will be a greates hits cd released with her early 2008 made by one of her swedish fans and now I heard something happened and she passed away. Very sad.
