The FDH Lounge Jimi Jamison box set
By Rick Morris
On The FDH Lounge, the show where nothing is off-topic, we have been privileged to have dozens and dozens of great guests on the program through our 7 ½ years of history. One of the very best guests was rock legend Jimi Jamison. Unfortunately, at the end of August, he was taken from us before his time.
As a means of paying proper tribute to him, we have rounded up his three appearances on the program, including the one taped just last month as part of a group interview with a reunited Survivor lineup while he was passing through Cleveland.
Additionally, two tributes from the time since his passing are included as well: one with best friend and fellow rock legend Bobby Kimball and one with his daughter, fellow musician Amy Jamison. Both of them shed additional light on his personal and professional life, as well as the earliest seeds of what will be ongoing efforts to nurture his legacy.
It’s always painful to suffer the loss of a man such as Jimi Jamison, especially when nobody has any time to prepare for it. One of the best ways to cope is always to remember the good times and what the person brought to others. In his own words and in the words of those who love him, over the course of about an hour-and-a-half collectively, we are proud to help in spotlighting the Jimi Jamison that people knew and loved.
