Singer Gene Pitney Dies Suddenly in Britain
Mark Howes, from his management company, says, "He did a good show last night at St. David's Hall and it was wonderful. I've seen him quite a few times on this tour and he was fit and well. He said it was the best tour he had done for quite a few years."
Pitney is most famous for single “Twenty Four Hours From Tulsa” and his 90s duet with Marc Almond, “Something's Gotten Hold Of My Heart,” but he was also an immensely successful songwriter, penning tracks for the likes of Rick Nelson, Roy Orbison, Bobby Vee and Marty Wilde. He is also credited with helping The Rolling Stones break the American market.
Pitney is survived by his wife Lynne and three sons who live in his native Connecticut.
