The Walrus of Love was 58...

Soul legend BARRY WHITE has died aged 58.

Known to his fans as the Walrus of Love because of his deep, seductive voice, White died at Cedars Sinai Hospital in West Hollywood on Friday morning (July 4), his manager has revealed.

White had been suffering with declining health for some time and had been hospitalised since last year following kidney failure.

During a long and hugely successful career, White sold over 100 million records across the world, and from the ’70s became an international sex symbol.

His most famous songs include ‘You’re The First, The Last, My Everything’ and ‘Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love, Babe’.

White is survived by eight children.
