Biography

British guitarist, known for his long collaborations with Rod Stewart and Johnny Hallyday, as well as for the wide-ranging nature of his musical performance, including membership of such bands as The Wombles.

His first official band was The Reign (whose first single was written by the Yardbirds members Keith Relf and Jim McCarty). The band lasted until 1973, then Le Mesurier became the guitarist of The Wombles, a novelty pop-rock band whose musicians used to dress as the characters from the British children’s TV show The Wombles.

He toured the United States with Air Supply in 1977 as the opening act for Rod Stewart, and he was invited in 1980 to join the Rod Stewart group.

In 1994, he recorded two tracks on French singer Johnny Hallyday's first English-language record Rough Town. He became Hallyday's musical director, besides founding the group Farm Dogs with Bernie Taupin and Jim Cregan.

Le Mesurier was the son of the British comedy actors, Hattie Jacques and John Le Mesurier. He gained a strong following during and after his appearance on Living TV's reality show Rehab (2009), in which he opened up about his battle with alcoholism. Robin Le Mesurier died of cancer on 22 December 2021 at the age of 68.

Sy Scholfield quotes from A Charmed Rock ‘n’ Roll Life by Robin Le Mesurier (Book Guild Publishing, 30 Mar 2017):

"In the early morning hours of Sunday 22nd March 1953, after nine months of solitary confinement (with no time off for good behaviour), my mother released me to the care of The Princess Beatrice Hospital on the corner of Old Brompton Road and Warwick Road in Earl's Court, London."
