Survivor founding member Jim Peterik has been intensely busy over the last year,with the 2014 release of his autobiography Through The Eye Of The Tiger: The Rock ‘N’ Roll Life Of Survivor’s Founding Member (BenBella Books), and 50th Anniversary of his band The Ides of March, which recently released their 5-disc boxed set Last Band Standing – The Definitive 50-Year Anniversary Collection in April (Ides Of March Records).
Most musicians would be ready to take a break, but not the powerhouse that is Peterik! The singer-songwriter/guitarist is readying Eye Of The Writer – The Songs Of Jim Peterik – an unplugged CD and companion DVD that spans material from across his rich career. For his FIRST EVER unplugged release, Peterik is working with esteemed producer/arranger Fred Mollin, who is noted for his successful unplugged series of recordings with Jimmy Webb, Kris Kristofferson, Barry Mann, and Johnny Mathis, among others.
The project will delve into both Peterik’s Survivor and Ides of March repertoire, and his solo work/achievements as a songwriter. Potential selections include the Grammy Winning, Oscar Nominated Rocky III anthem “Eye Of The Tiger,” 1970’s #1 Ides hit “Vehicle,” Survivor hits “High On You,” “Is This Love,” and “The Search Is Over,” and smash cuts he’s written made famous by other artists, such as .38 Special’s “Hold On Loosely,” “Rocking Into The Night,” and “Caught Up In You,” and Sammy Hagar’s #1 hit “Heavy Metal.”
