Sucks he's dead, but he wasn't even the lead singer on the one Survivor song people know.

Survivor kicked ass until the original lead singer bailed.  Now maybe he will come back!  RIP

Jimi Jamison is one of my few "I saw him singing in a bar before he was famous" stories.

Sure, other bands paid their dues on the bar circuit...Van Halen, Guns n Roses, REM...no, I got to see Jimi Jamison.

Heart attack, eh?  The Fappening claims its first victim (well, unless you count the celebrities, of course). :(

At least he died doing what he loved.

Making people miserable with his caterwauling and unpleasant post-castration capon-like yelping.

I don't know this band, but there are a lot of failed headlines for this guy's death.  I'm totes old enough.  What gives?

Nah, that guy's still kicking. He also sings on those "Real Men of Genius" beer commercials.

So sad to hear this.  I liked Jimi Jamison.

So wait....
Was he the guy who sang 'Eye of the Tiger', or was he the guy who sang 'The Search is Over', 'High on You', and 'I Can't Hold Back'?

It's the moment of truth
the reaper he calls
he points at your chest
he watches you fall
your heart stops beating
breaths not completing
slowly life force slips out out out

He didn't sing on Eye of the Tiger, he sang on all their other hits.

alexjoss: Survivor kicked ass until the original lead singer bailed. Now maybe he will come back! RIP


Actually as of about 2006 both singers sang with Survivor, sometimes during the same show. This after about 12 years of legal shenanigans that no one is sure how any side paid for.

Well a lot know them from their 80s run of semi-hits and not just one song, I was at a wedding where the bride had to have "the search is over" played, the DJ didn't have it so we had to go to Walmart and buy the damn CD. Yes, this was before MP3s.

I saw them at Epcot 2 years ago,I don't know who was singing then, I was pretty drunk.

I'm pretty sure the band would totally understand.

When Eddie Money dies, the headline should read: One Ticket to Paradise.

 My attempt was "The lead singer of 'Survivor' didn't."

 
2014-09-02 06:20:27 AM  
I call BS. I've seen that show plenty of times. There is no singing.

No, Spirit is a different band entirely.

I saw them last fall there. They used a couple lead singers, but I'm not sure who exactly they used. I do think Jamison did do a couple songs of the set. It took a couple songs for them to really get into their groove but they did manage to rock the place.

I'm glad I got to see them. Condolences to his family.

/Yeah, Food and Wine is pretty awesome.

I remember Spirit. Norman Greenbaum was their lead singer. He's still alive, isn't he?

In Tribute:
"Theme From Rocky XIII (The Rye Or The Kaiser)"

Fat and weak, what a disgrace
Guess the champ got too lazy
Ain't gonna fly now, he's just takin' up space
Sold his gloves, threw his eggs down the drain

But he's no bum, he works down the street
He bought the neighborhood deli
Back on his feet, now he's choppin' up meat
Come inside, maybe you'll hear him say

Try the rye or the kaiser
They're on special tonight
If you want, you can have an appetizer
You might like our salami and the liver's all right
And they'd really go well with the rye
Or the kaiser

Never eats while on the job
He heard it's good to stay hungry
But he makes a pretty mean shish kabob
Have a taste, they were made fresh today

Try the rye or the kaiser or the wheat or the white
Maybe I can suggest an appetizer
Stay away from the tuna, it smells funny tonight
But you just can't go wrong with the rye
Or the kaiser

So today, his deli comes first
Still he dreams of his past days of glory
Goes in the back and beats up on the liverwurst
All the while you can still hear him say

It's the rye or the kaiser, it's the thrill of one bite
Let me please be your catering advisor
If you want substitutions I won't put up a fight
You can have your roast beef on the rye
Or the kaiser

The rye or the kaiser
The rye or the kaiser
The rye or the kaiser

R.I.P.

So, you are either too young or didn't date much when you were young.
I grew up the 80s and this band had a huge following among teen girls and about 4 monster hits after Eye of the Tiger.
All of these hits were sung by Jimi Jamison.

Based upon their greatest hits album, I am familiar with 'High on You, The Search is Over, Is this Love, I can't Hold Back, Burning Heart, and Eye of the Tiger.

OH, wait until you see how Blabbermouth is taking this. (I'm Honkee Weenerfarrt on there, btw). Farkers versus Blabbermouthers is a heavyweight contender on this one.

PS, love his solo stuff more than Survivor. He did some amazing acoustic stuff on Roe And Roeper not long ago.

Yeah far from one hit or song people know about but then this is fark and they were mainstream so they hate
