British pianist and songwriter who had many hits in the late 1950s and early 1960s as one of the most popular pianists of the UK. His jangly and exuberant playing was unmistakable and some of his early records, such as "Side Saddle" and "Roulette" were great hits.
Conway had a long career though his private life was often disturbed by health concerns. He suffered a nervous breakdown in 1965 and a stroke prevented him from performing 1968-1971. In 1971 Conway was battling a problem with alcoholism and close to bankruptcy, he started a battle with cancer in 1989 and was in remission in 1994; in March 1995, he almost lost his thumb in an accident. He recorded and toured again. On November 4, 2000 he was found unconscious and admitted to Eastbourne District Hospital near his home in Eastbourne, England. He died on November 16, 2000 from a recurrence of stomach cancer which had spread to his brain.
