Jamison first joined the band in 1984 after original lead singer Dave Bickler encounteredvoice problems before a tour supporting the band’s CAUGHT IN THE GAME album.
Hm. I always wondered what happened to that first lead singer.

I just heard Burning Heart on XM Radio's 80s station.
Total 80s MOR rock, and what a study in empty, hit-chasing songwriting. No hooks; everything amped up to compensate for the lack of ideas; big booming gated drums; every lyric a non sequitur or cliché.
I love that song.

Dave Bickler is now best known as the guy in those "Real Men of Genius" radio commercials singing the ridiculous "rock dude" zingers behind the announcer. Better than anything he ever did with Survivor!

I deeply appreciate this NYT story for having a photo of Survivor from 1979 as the lead graphic:

In the last month, Mr. Gingrich has been accused twice of violating copyright laws, first for playing “How Do You Like Me Now?” by the Heavy at a rally in Tampa, Fla., and then for using “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor at several political events, going back to 2009.
That is hilarious. What music should Republicans use?
