Had the 45s for "I Can't Hold Back," "High On You," and "Burning Heart" and played them all the time when I was a kid. Another great musician/vocalist of the '80s gone. Sad

Just saw this. Such a bummer. Fantastic singer. Of course, he is known for his work with Survivor, but there is a ton of other great music from him out there. =(

Come on. You gotta also know "Burning Heart" and "The Search is Over." Especially the former! Who doesn't know that song? =)

The general rule with Survivor in the U.K is, if it wasn't in a Rocky movie, we took no notice at all so I only really know Burning Heart from his era.

Still, another one gone too soon R.I.P.

He's a great singer. He sang in Cobra and Target before Survivor. Those bands were more in the hard rock vein than his work with Survivor. Gone too soon.  R.I.P.

R.I.P I saw Jimi with Survivor open for REO Speedwagon in October of 84. Also on the bill was Zebra. Great show, great vocalist.

A great vocalist and if you like AOR, he and Survivor were some of the best in that genre

Definitely a bummer.

I'm not a die hard Survivor fanboy, but they're easily my favorite of that style/genre. Pick any album and it's a fun listen all the way through.

I loved the Rocky songs - his voice was classic - very cool looks -
Kinda reminds me of Paul Sabu - with that vocal power and passion -
I had to smile that he did a concert on a Saturday night and lived in Mephis -
I have watched that Cobra song for years - never knew it was Jimi from Survivor.
It's cool to hear that any Survivor cd is a fun listen - that speaks volumes -
Hope he gets a greatest hits package - sounds great for winter listening !
R.I.P

I bought Survivor's greatest hits - and it's nice listening - for sure.

Well, this sucks.

http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/6312362/survivor-jimi-jamison-autopsy

Quote :
The autopsy says Jamison had cardiovascular disease and narrowing of the arteries. It had been believed that Jamison died of a heart attack.

The report says he died of a hemorrhagic brain stroke, with "acute methamphetamine intoxication contributing."

Meth. Such a shame.

I really wasn't around much back in 2014 as I just found out about this over two years later. Old news, but a bit of a shock for me.

R.I.P.
