Michael Molloy: Bestival Crash death musician in Top 40

Michael Molloy Michael Molloy recorded 'Rise and Fall' with his friend Alex Evans

A song recorded by an 18-year-old Liverpool musician who died in a coach crash has entered the singles chart.

Michael Molloy, from Woolton, was one of three people killed when a coach returning from Bestival on the Isle of Wight crashed last September.

'Rise and Fall', a song he recorded with his friend Alex Evans, entered the charts at number 38.

His brother Joe said it had been Michael's ambition "to have his music recognised by the wider world".

He said: "Michael can never come back and we will never cease to grieve for him.

"But Michael's talent was one of the qualities which defined him and we want the rest of the world, through his music, to understand and appreciate in a small way just what a special human being he was."

The song was released on Bestival organiser and BBC Radio 1 DJ Rob Da Bank's label, Sunday Best.
