Singles like "Burning Heart" (US #2), "The Search Is Over" (#4 US), and "High on You" (#8 US) continued to chart in the mid-1980s. Image File history File links Broom_icon. ...

History

Early Years

Survivor was formed in 1977 by Jim Peterik, Frankie Sullivan, Dave Bickler, Gary Smith, and Dennis Johnson. Peterik was previously the lead vocalist/guitarist for the band Ides of March. After playing in small clubs for several years, Survivor released its first album, the self-titled Survivor, in 1979, but the album did not achieve the level of success that the band had hoped for, producing no Top 40 singles. The 1981 follow-up album, Premonition, charted higher, achieving popularity with American audiences and giving the band its first Top 40 single, "Poor Man's Son". The album is considered to be their best by many fans today. Also: 1977 (album) by Ash. ... Jim Peterik (born 1951) is an American musician. ... Frankie Sullivan, Franklin Maurice. ...

In 1982, Survivor's breakthrough arrived when actor Sylvester Stallone asked it to provide the theme song for his movie Rocky III. Stallone had heard their single "Poor Man's Son" and wanted a song similar to it. The band agreed to write him a song and soon released "Eye of the Tiger". It had an enormous impact on the Billboard charts, peaking at #1 and staying there for a total of six weeks. It also topped the British Billboard charts. It was in the Top 40 for a total of 18 weeks and was Australia's #1 single for four weeks. The song won the band a Grammy Award, was voted "Best New Song" by the People's Choice Awards, and also received an Academy Award nomination. The album of the same title, Eye of the Tiger, was released by the band later in 1982 and contained another Top 40 hit in the United States, "American Heartbeat" (#17 US). The album went on to chart at #2 in the US. Year 1982 (MCMLXXXII) was a common year starting on Friday (link displays the 1982 Gregorian calendar). ...

In 1983, Survivor tried to duplicate the success of Eye of the Tiger by releasing Caught In The Game. The album turned out to be a commercial disappointment, stalling at #82 on the Billboard 200 in the United States. Neither of the album's two singles reached the Top 40. The band suffered another setback before a tour in late 1983, when lead singer Dave Bickler suffered voice problems and had to be replaced by Jimi Jamison of the bands Target and Cobra.

1984-1988: The Hit Years

After recording "The Moment Of Truth" (#63 US), the theme song of the box office smash hit "The Karate Kid" (1984), the band recorded its first album with Jamison. "Vital Signs" gave the band a massive comeback, peaking at #16 on the Billboard Album Chart with the hits "I Can't Hold Back" (#13 US), "High On You" (#8 US), and "The Search Is Over" (#4 US). The Karate Kid is a 1984 John G. Avildsen film starring Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita. ...


In 1985, the band had another hit with "Burning Heart," a song from the Rocky IV soundtrack, when it peaked at #2 on Billboard's Hot 100. For the soundtrack to the movie, see Rocky IV (album). ...


"When Seconds Count" was released in 1986 and included the hit "Is This Love" (#9 US). On the Billboard album chart, the album peaked at #49 but still managed to sell over 500,000 copies and reached certified gold status.


During pre-production of their seventh album, "Too Hot To Sleep" (1988), Ellis and Droubay were replaced on by studio session vets Mickey Curry (drums) and Bill Syniar (bass). Sullivan produced the effort with Frank Fillipetti. The album presented a harder-rocking Survivor, similar to the sound in the band's the early days. 'Too Hot To Sleep' failed to make a dent on the charts (#187 US).


1989-2000: Work on Greatest Hits Album

After the disappointing sales of "Too Hot To Sleep," Jim Peterik, Frankie Sullivan decided to put the band on hiatus indefinitely. Jamison decided to continue touring and playing Survivor songs with local musicians. He subsequently recorded a solo album in 1990. Jamison continued to tour, now billing his band as "Survivor." After some success overseas touring in 1992, Sullivan contacted Jamison's management and asked to be included on the tour; he performed on eight to ten dates before leaving the group.


Soon after, in late 1992-early 1993, Survivor was tapped to do a new and more extensive hits package with two new songs. For a short time Peterik, Sullivan, and Jamison were reunited in the studio to record new material for the new package and forthcoming world tour. After broken contract talks, Jamison quit and went back on the road as "Jimi Jamison's Survivor."


In spring 1993, Peterik and Sullivan re-teamed with original lead singer Dave Bickler, released a new 'Greatest Hits' album with two new songs ("Hungry Years" co-written by Bickler and "You Know Who You Are"), and embarked on a world tour. As Jamison was also touring under the Survivor banner, Peterik and Sullivan filed a lawsuit against their former colleague for using the name.


From 1993 to 1996, the trio (Peterik, Sullivan, and Bickler) recorded about 20 demos for a new album (the songs can be heard on the "Fire Makes Steel" bootleg) with session musicians. Unfortunately, they failed to secure a record deal due to the ongoing litigation and trademark issues.


When the band tried to move in a blues direction, Peterik decided to leave the band, playing his last show with Survivor on July 3, 1996, at "The Eye In The Sky" fest in Lisle, Illinois. Survivor replaced Peterik with composer/keyboardist Chris Grove. Peterik returned to recording and touring with the Ides Of March and also formed the group Pride of Lions. Incorporated Village in 1956. ... For other uses, see Ides of March (disambiguation). ...


In 1997, drummer Marc Droubay rejoined Survivor, while bassist Stephen Ellis quit. Ellis was replaced by Billy Ozzello.


Survivor then went on to record more demos for a record deal, including "Rebel Girl '98" and the Frankie Sullivan solo album cut, "Lies."


In 1999, Jimi Jamison released the album "Empires" under the name "Jimi Jamison's Survivor" (later re-released under his own name). In late September 1999, Sullivan won ownership of the name "Survivor," thereby ending the ongoing trademark battle.


2000-2006: Release of first new album in nearly 20 years

In early 2000, Bickler was fired, severing the then Sullivan/Bickler Survivor and resulting in Sullivan's reestablishment of a partnership with Jamison. The band then began recording material for a new album. The Peterik/Sullivan-penned track " Velocitized" was set for inclusion on the Soundtrack to the Sylvester Stallone film Driven. However, it did not make the cut. The band continues to play regular concerts in North America, Europe, and Asia.

Meanwhile, original Survivor vocalist David Bickler began collaborating on the successful Bud Light Real Men of Genius radio ads in the late 1990s and 2000s. The "Real Men Of Genius" Bud Light ads are widely popular and now include TV spots aired on the 2006 Super Bowl, among others. A CD package containing many of the popular commercials was recorded with Bickler. It sold over 100,000 copies in its first month of release and is now available for purchase at budlight.com.

On April 21, 2006, Survivor released a new album called "Reach". Consisting of mostly new songs, it also includes some re-recordings from the "Fire Makes Steel" sessions. Two of the album's songs, "Reach" and "Fire Makes Steel", had been considered for inclusion in the 2006 Rocky sequel Rocky Balboa, but it never appeared on the 2006 album named "Rocky Balboa: The Best of Rocky". is the 111th day of the year (112th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Six of the album's twelve songs were written and recorded in the 1990s with Dave Bickler on lead vocals (except "Never The Less" and "Talkin' Bout Love").


On July 14, 2006, it was announced that Jamison was leaving the band and that Robin McAuley would replace him on lead vocals. Robin McAuley is a rock vocalist known mostly for his work in McAuley Schenker Group and Grand Prix. ...


2007-present: New vocalist

According to Sullivan, the band is said to be going back into the studio to record brand-new material for a new Survivor record (featuring McAuley on lead vocals) for a 2007 release.


The current lineup is a mix of old and new members: newcomer Robin McAuley (vocals), original member/songwriter Frankie Sullivan (guitar/vocals), longtime member Marc Droubay (drums), and veteran members Billy Ozzello (bass) and Chris Grove (keyboards/guitar).


Grove, a classically trained pianist, has been with the group for more than ten years since he replaced Peterik in July 1996. Randy Riley and Barry Dunaway both briefly filled in on bass after Ozzello's departure. Dunaway departed shortly after recording the new album in late 2005. Ozzello, who recorded an album with the band "Blind for a Day" in 1998, recently returned to the lineup.


The band performed "Eye of the Tiger" on ABC's Dancing with the Stars on April 3, 2007. For the video game based on the American series, see Dancing with the Stars (video game) Countries with their own version Dancing with the Stars is the name for a number of international television series based on the format of the British series Strictly Come Dancing. ...


Frankie Sullivan is now producing the sophmore effort of the critically acclaimed band Mecca led by Singer/Songwriter Joe Vana. Ironically, he replaces Jim Peterik who produced the first Mecca album. The album is due out the first part of 2008 on Frontiers Records Worldwide.
