Death of a true songster

I was sad to hear of the death of Gene Pitney the other day. During all my days of seventies glamrock and heavy metal worship, whenever I heard Gene Pitney coming on the radio, I always stopped and listened.

His unique voice was indeed, music to my ears. I remember well his first ever performance in this country. He was introduced by Cathy McGowan on Ready, Steady, Go.

What a shame he died without any of his family with him, alone in an hotel bedroom.

Thanks for the link. I didn't realise Gene Pitney had died until I came to your blog. I most have been sleeping that day.

With Ron Greenwood and John Lyall as well, I think I'll have to nick your blog's title.
