In Memoriam: Musicians Who Died In 2014

As 2014 is just about at an end, we take a moment at Geeks Of Doom to remember the fallen musicians who left us this year. A large array of heavyweights, cult heroes, pioneering figures, and sentimental favorites are among those who have left us in a physical sense, but the memories that they made in the past and the ones that each of their fans have in regards to them will never leave.

A list of some of our (and probably yours as well) fallen heroes is below.

Cobra Band Photo

Cobra was a band that had a minor hit in the early days of MTV with their driving anthem “Blood On Your Money” from their one and only album, 1983’s First Strike. The band was notable because their lineup included former Krokus guitarist Mandy Meyer and velvet-voiced singer Jimi Jamison, who, only a year later, would go on to become the lead singer of the 80’s mega hit-machine Survivor. (Jamison also wrote and sang the theme song of the cheesy 90’s TV show Baywatch.)

First Strike is a classic of melodic metal and is sadly underrated. Jimi Jamison left this world after suffering a heart attack just last month at the age of 63. This Massive Metal Monday is dedicated to his memory.

Survivor Singer Singer Jimi Jamison on stage in 2012

Jimi Jamison, best known as the lead singer of the band Survivor, was found dead today of an apparent heart attack. The singer was reportedly found at his home in Memphis, TN, by his son at around 1am on Monday morning and is believed to have died on Sunday. He was 63.

The Mississippi-born Jamison joined the Chicago rock band Survivor in 1984 after their 1982 smash-hit “Eye of the Tiger,” which was the theme song for the movie Rocky III, but was with the group for several of their other popular songs, like “Burning Heart,” which was used for Rocky IV, “High On You,” “I Can’t Hold Back,” “Is This Love?”, and “The Search Is Over.” He left the group in 1989, recorded several solo albums, and co-wrote/sang on the popular Baywatch theme song “I’m Always Here.” He eventually rejoined Survivor in 2000 for another six years, and then again in 2011 and has been touring with the band ever since, alongside original singer Dave Bickler.

Rocky Balboa: The Best of Rocky

For a huge selection of high quality MP3 albums at low prices there’s no better place to shop online than at Amazon. Every month the website hosts a wide variety of downloadable albums for $5 at their MP3 store and this month they have 100 titles available, each of which will only set you back a single digital Abe Lincoln. Since individual MP3s tend to sell for 99 cents at least you’re saving yourself a few bucks as well. Among the sweet deals Amazon is offering in November you’ll find titles from artists such as Lauren Hill, Bob Dylan, the Black Keys, George Thorogood and the Destroyers, John Coltrane, Kings of Leon, and Norah Jones.

One title in particular that would make a nice Christmas present for the sports movie enthusiast in your family is Rocky Balboa: The Best of Rocky.
