TMZ reports that Jimi Jamison, frontman of the ’80s rock band Survivor, died of a heart attack at home in Memphis last night. He was 63. A Memphis native, Jamison joined Survivor after singing for the local metal band Cobra. Survivor were already big names thanks to their iconically cheesed-out anthem “Eye Of The Tiger,” but original vocalist Dave Bickler had to leave the band because of vocal problems, and Jamison stepped in. With Jamison leading, the band scored a number of other hits, including “Is This Love?,” “The Search Is Over,” “High On You,” and the Rocky IV training-montage song “Burning Heart.” Jamison also sang and co-wrote the theme to the TV show Baywatch. All told, his career encompasses a sort of shameless, synthed-up, often genuinely exciting synth-rock that nobody makes anymore, a style that works as an instant nostalgia-trigger to anyone who was a kid in the ’80s. Jamison released a few solo albums in the years after and also intermittently toured and recorded with Survivor. He’d just performed with the band in California on Saturday night.
