Pierre Perrone writes that "Albert Eccles became Clint Warwick by putting together the names of his favourite singer, Dionne Warwick, and his favourite actor, Clint Walker" [obituary, 3 June]. Clint had forgotten the real roots of the name, so he started this story, writes Pamela Phelan. It was Danny King (lead singer with Danny King and the Dukes, with whom Clint played bass before joining the Moody Blues) who named him, after the county they lived in.

At the time of his death, Clint had just done the vocals for one last song, called "Dreamstone" and written by Jon Fox. It was débuted at the funeral service.
