Bread’s Jimmy Griffin Dies

Bread co-founder Jimmy Griffin, 61, died of complications from cancer at his home in Franklin, Tenn., January 11th.

Griffin debuted the band with David Gates and Robb Royer in 1968. He left in 1973 and rejoined in ’76, shortly before Bread split up amid lawsuits.

Griffin formed Black Tie with Randy Meisner in the ’80s and was a regular on the Nashville scene in the early ’90s with The Remingtons.

Griffin won an Oscar for co-writing “For All We Know” from the 1970 movie “Lovers and Other Strangers,” which became a hit for The Carpenters.
