    Tony Lewis, lead singer of the 80’s pop band ‘The Outfield’ died Monday at the age of 62. That had several hits and a nice sound.

    Josie's on a vacation far away
    Come around and talk it over
    So many things that I want to say
    You know I like my girls a little bit older

    I just want to use your love tonight
    I don't want to lose your love tonight

    Saw this last night. Your Love is an epic song...still played a ton. They also had several other really good songs IMO. Had a chance to see them in Charleston a while back and didn't go---have always regretted it. Unfortunately John Spinks their guitar player died back in 2014 of liver cancer at 60. Both Tony and John died way too young.

    Like Eddie Van Halen...another part of my childhood gone...:(

    Yep I was there. I met one of the band members girlfriends who was disturbed that the crowd wasn't enthusiastic enough.
