About

About Bobby Jameson

Bobby Jameson

BOBBY JAMESON d2015. American singer-songwriter who was briefly promoted as a major star in the early 1960s and later attracted a cult following with his 1965 album "Songs of Protest and Anti-Protest" issued under the name of Chris Lucey name. The album's dark lyrics and sophisticated arrangements led its advocates to note similarities with Love's 1967 album Forever Changes. For decades, little was known about him or his origins and he was more famous for engaging in public disturbances and suicide attempts than his music. Starting his career in 1963, he was hyped as the next major pop event in an elaborate promotional campaign that ran in the magazines Billboard and Cashbox. For the next five years, he released eleven singles across eight different American and British record labels. At one point, he was the opening live act for the Beach Boys / Jan & Dean and Chubby Checker and also declined an offer to join the Monkees. From the mid 1960s to early 1970s, he was active in LA underground music circles working with musicians including Frank Zappa and Crazy Horse. His life was affected by personal misfortune, followed by alcoholism and criminal activity. He grew increasingly frustrated and disillusioned with the music industry, alleging that his managers and employers failed to ensure him financial compensation and royalties. For much of the 1970s he was institutionalized or homeless, but eventually achieved sobriety. After 1985, he left the music business completely, and was rumored to be dead for many years. He died aged 70 in California on May 12th 2015
