Gene Pitney Dies Aged 65

Many many….MANY years ago, my dad won tickets in a radio phone in, for tickets to see Gene Pitney in concert. I remember it quite well and enjoyed the experience. I remember Gene Pitney, for tracks such as ‘Something’s Gotta Hold of my Heart’ and ‘The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance’. Today though, news of his death are doing the rounds on the news:
