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:
Singer Gene Pitney has died in the middle of his UK tour. The 65-year-old American star was found dead just after 10am at the Hilton Hotel in Cardiff. His 40-year career included the hits Twenty-Four Hours From Tulsa and Something’s Gotten Hold Of My Heart. Pitney played St David’s Hall in Cardiff on Tuesday night and was due to perform in Bristol tonight.
