Survivor Sues Singer

Frankie Sullivan, the one constant member of Survivor, has filed suit against promoters of the band’s oft-times singer, Jimi Jamison.

Jamison, who joined the group soon after the band’s 1983 hit, “Eye of the Tiger,” has handled vocal duties from 1984 to 1993 and from 2000 to 2006.

However, he is barred from using the band’s name during solo performances, although he can mention Survivor in background material, according to the lawsuit.

Now Sullivan is suing two promoters for allegedly billing recent shows using the words “Jimi Jamison (Survivor).”

“It’s been 15 years that we’ve been protecting our client’s rights,” Sullivan attorney Annette McGarry told the Chicago Tribune. “It’s our legal obligation to police this trademark.”
