Jimi Jamison of Survivor dead at 63


Recommended Posts

The singer of Survivor is dead! Would that be irony? :-k[biggrin]


What, too soon? [unsure]





not for me... but I'm a little twisted.


Nor did I like them at all.

I think I may still have their greatest hits album on 45 somewhere.



Condolences to his family and friends.

Wouldn't have recognized either the man or the music.


But from my perspective 63 is awfully young to go. Heck, I wish I were only 63.


The music biz is no easy calling, even for those who have made it work for them instead of entirely the other way around.

Burning Heart, another Rocky movie hit has about 20 million views on YouTube, not too bad.


Incredibly there are more than 80 million views for Eye Of The Tiger if you count all versions uploaded, I mean nothing, nothing is going to compare to that. There are probably only a handful of songs in American Rock History that have that kind of success.


Man, I wish I was a one hit wonder with that kind of success.

There's like, 50 ex members of Survivor. I think I was in that band for a night. They were suing Sony for miscounting their royalties this year, and they were going to tour the original singer and Jamison this year.
