Gene Pitney, 1941-2006

The money ran out.

Man, I didn't even realize that Gene Pitney was still alive, let alone actively touring. Pitney was found dead today in his room at a Hilton hotel in Wales. He was 65. Oldies radio stations still play his two biggest hits, but I know his voice best through his duets with George Jones. Here a fun one from 1965.
