Sad News Gene Francis Alan Pitney!

Another non-blog entry!

On the 5th April 2006 Gene Francis Alan Pitney died.

When I was a growing up Gene's music was pretty much on all radio stations. I began listening to his music when I was around my grandfather. Everytime I hear Gene's music I remember my grandfather. Which makes the news even more harder to take. :(

I remember going to see Gene Pitney in concert and have awesome memories of him and his music.

Gene sadly passed away yesterday.

He was only 65 years old.

His obituary can be found at:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/4879230.stm

His website:
http://www.gene-pitney.com/ is currently off line.

I posted this on another blog I have and thought that I should place it here.

God bless Gene Pitney!

I wuzza 'bout 14-16 when that dude had his day. You get different opinions about his voice and a lotta folks put him in "the guilty pleasure" category...Either way, I bought every album he recorded and still think his singing style was pretty damned original..Tellya what...If you were goin' thru a break-up with a teenage girl at the time...Pitney could bringya to tears.......

Never hadda #1..."Only Love Can Break a Heart" hit #2...Yup! Beat out by "He's a Rebel" by the Crystal's...penned by Pitney..

Thanks for the visit.

Agree with everything you said, the music if the 50's and 60's and the 70's were awesome times in music. I have fond memories of Gene and his music, Elvis Presley and his music. I am very glad to be born in a time period to experience the music of the 60's and 70's and would not trade that for anything ever.

Gene, Del Shannon, Jan and Dean, Ricky Nelson, Beachboys are what I call real music.

I will miss his music.

The rest is an add on.

IMO!
