Death of Gene Pitney

Postby CarolF » Wed 5 Apr 2006 23:30 GMT

Both Alan and myself were saddened to hear of the death of the music legend Gene Pitney yesterday in Wales.

At such a young age of 65 Gene should have been able to look forward to a lot more years of life.

Our condolences go out to Gene's family, wife Lynne, and there children. Gene was very successful in the UK, and he toured almost every year to packed theaters.

Gene was a favorite of both myself and my husband. He will be sorely missed.

Yes, I quite liked him too.

He was one of those singers though who unfortunately had their name associated with one song for his whole career, and I always think that holds them back a bit.

We were sad too.

(BTW, there's already a thread about it in the Music forum, so I'll shift this over there too.)
