Brother Andy,


Siva Choy passed away an hour ago in Perth. My brothers from Australia called me.  


I will miss him as I explain my musical journey. In 1966 he gave me a helping hand with my band, then known as The Idols (from St. Joseph's Institution). We were all students. 


I had the pleasure to perform as a guest band at the T-Dance with him and his brother James Choy when they were known as The Cyclones. The venue was the Golden Venus.


Brother Siva was a great journalist, a singer and a songwriter. He was a complete performer, along with his brother James. They were known then as The Beatles of Singapore.


I love the song they recorded with The Checkmates called, The Dew with good singing and the whole unit sounded excellent. I have heard them many times and I stand by my comments.


Gonna miss him. Sleep in peace brother Siva.

Hi Andy,

Read your blog and sad to hear that Siva Choy passed away yesterday in Perth. Herb and I remember singing with the Cyclones at the golden venus Sunday T-dances and we used to have a friendly rivalry with them. Those were the great times in the 60’s. We like to send our condolences to his family.
