Jimi Jamison frontman for Survivor sadly passed away on Sunday at the age of 63 of a heart attack. Although he didn’t sing on the original recording of Eye of the Tiger (he joined the band later) he did sing it live and was also in this really cool Starbucks commercial.
He also co-wrote and sang the theme to Baywatch…
AND in the late 80’s was asked to replace Ian Gillan in Deep Purple but turned it down to continue his solo career.
RIP Jimi Jamison
