Nazareth Member Manny Charlton’s Cause of Death Still Unknown


We are deeply saddened to announce that unfortunately, a founding member of the Scottish hard rock band Nazareth, passed away on July 6, 2022, at the age of 80. Manny Charlton’s cause of death is still unrevealed.

He was born July 25, 1941, in La Línea, Andalusia, Spain. After a while, he moved with his family from Spain to Dunfermline, Scotland, when he was two years old. He played in several bands before joining Nazareth.

The most famous bands among all of them are the Mark 5, and later the Red Hawks, before joining the neighborhood semi-pro Dunfermline band The Shadettes.

On July 6, 2022, a legendary guitarist and a member of rock band Nazareth passed away. Manny Charlton's cause of death remains unknown.

The band, Nazareth, gained so much popularity because of him and he has been remembered as an icon of the band. Although in 1993, he left the band, still people continue to remember him for the songs he created with the Nazareth. 

The opening line of The Band’s song was “The Weight” and they were so moved by that and decided to change the band’s name to Nazareth in 1968. He played guitar for Nazareth from 1968 which is its beginning until 1990.

Here are some famous songs by Manny Charlton and his bandmates:

The group contained Charlton’s blues-inspired guitar, Dan McCafferty’s powerful, sandpaper vocals — which were a major influence on Axl Rose’s style — and bassist Pete Agnew’s high harmonies. All these talents brought the band a melodic flair rare for hard rock bands of the era.

Charlton was really private about his personal life and never shared anything about it. But as much as we know he was a husband, father, and granddad. Jamie Charlton who is one of his grandsons has paid tribute to him and mentioned him as his granddad. 

Also, it has been said that he was popular by considering music and guitar as his love. Although there is no specific information about his wife or partner.

He has some solo songs which are:

  • Bravado
  • Say The Word 
  • Americana Deluxe
  • Then There’s This
  • Creme de la Creme – a Best Of
