BILLY Connolly’s bandmate Tam Harvey has died, his daughter has confirmed.

Tributes have been flooding in to the Scottish music legend who started The Humblebums group in the 1960s.

The band featured Harvey, The Big Yin and Gerry Rafferty.

They grew in reputation after playing local pubs and clubs in Glasgow.

Now Harvey’s daughter Georgiana Mannion has shared the sad news about her dad on social media.

And she revealed that he had even taught the Scots comic how to play guitar.

She posted a pic of the group’s album featuring both her father and Connolly on the sleeve.

She said: “My father died a few hours ago.

“So sorry for your loss.”

We told you earlier how Connolly wants to apologise to a woman photographer he told to ‘f*** off’ during one of his gigs.

The Big Yin, who is battling Parkinson’s Disease, launched a verbal volley at the snapper and later said he had no regrets.

But he now says he wanted to say sorry to Valerie O’Sullivan over the incident at the Gleneagle Hotel, Killarney, Ireland.
