Gary DeCarlo

Posted on 18 July 2017 by Brian Walsh

Gary DeCarlo, lead singer with Steam and co-writer of their 1969 #1 hit, “Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss him Goodbye)”, died Wednesday (June 28) of cancer in a hospice center near his home in Shelton, Connecticut. He was 75. The song was initially the B-side of a record Gary, Paul Leka and Dale Frashuer were to release under his pseudonym, Garret Scott. Instead, Mercury Records released it under the name Steam and sent a bogus group out to support it on tour. The song went on to sell a reported 6 1/2 to 8 million copies and became a sports anthem.
