Jimmy Beaumont

Posted on 17 October 2017 by Brian Walsh

Jimmy Beaumont, lead singer of the Skyliners, died Saturday (October 7), a couple of weeks shy of his 77th birthday. Jimmy originally started singing while at Knoxville Junior High School in Pittsburgh in a group called the Montereys (later the Crescents) that came to the attention of local manager Joe Rock. He got them a contract with Calico Records with a song he wrote (literally on the way to the recording studio) called “Since I Don’t Have You”. Released under the name “the Skyliners”, it got to #12 in 1959 and was followed by (among others) “This I Swear” (#26-1959) and “Pennies From Heaven” (#24-1960). As a solo artist, Jimmy barely scratched the national chart with “Ev’rybody’s Cryin'” (#100-1961) and ” I Feel Like I’m Falling In Love” (#123-1965). The Skyliners, however, called it quits by 1964. Jimmy took on a variety of non-musical jobs, including driving a cab, before re-forming the Skyliners to play the oldies circuit starting in the ’70s and he continued to front the group until his passing. The Skyliners were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2002.

Tom Petty

Posted on 02 October 2017 by Brian Walsh

Tom Petty was found in full cardiac arrest at his Malibu, California mansion Sunday night and was rushed to UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center. He was found to have no brain activity and his family chose to terminate life support Monday (October 2). The Gainesville, Florida native was just short of his 67th birthday. Tom’s interest in rock music began after meeting Elvis Presley on the set of the King’s movie, Follow That Dream” in 1961. He formed a band called the Epics that became Mudcrutch and moved to Los Angeles to record with Shelter Records. Though the band broke up, three of the members formed the Heartbreakers and in 1977, they charted with “Breakdown” (#40). Slowly other hits followed, including “Don’t Do Me Like That” (#10-1980), “Refugee” (#15-1980) and “The Waiting (#19-1981). Tom also reached #3 in 1981 with “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around”— a duet with Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac. Joining with George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne of ELO, Tom recorded as the Traveling Wilburys (where he was known as Junior Wilbury) and released two hit albums. He appeared in the movies “FM” and “Made In Heaven” and he and the Heartbreakers were inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.
