Ian Robins Dury (12 May 1942 – 27 March 2000) was an English rock and roll singer, lyricist, bandleader and actor who initially rose to fame during the late 1970s, during the punk and New Wave era of rock music. He is best known as founder, frontman, and lead singer of the British band Ian Dury and the Blockheads, who were one of the groups of the New Wave era in the UK. As a lyricist, his authorship of popular songs of the time, in particular the single, "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll", was underplayed at the time by critics, though it has been performed and quoted by countless musicians since it was written.
