Alan Hull wrote one of the North East's greatest anthems and he exported Geordie culture worldwide. A founder member of the band Lindisfarne, Alan was an ambassador for his home town of Newcastle and often penned songs about the region he loved.
Now, a plaque has been unveiled in his memory outside Newcastle City Hall.
Alan died in 1995 but many of his tracks will be remembered forever, especially Fog On The Tyne and Run For Home. Lindisfarne played Newcastle City Hall 135 times.
