Our hero, Phil Seymour, was an American musician who developed skillfully between the sounds of Power Pop, Rock and New Wave. Singer, composer, producer and multi- instrumentalist (drums, guitar, bass), he left his mark on all the projects in which he participated throughout his professional career between 1974 and 1993. Phil was a brilliant "all terrain" who is well known for the songs "I'm on fire" (with the Dwight Twilley Band) or his wonderful "Precious to me", already on his own. No doubt, Phil had a major role in the Dwight Twilley Band, a seminal group within the pop and underground world, but his solo work was, and still is, revered among the most exquisite Power Pop fans. Unfortunately, he left us in 1993, after fighting cancer that was detected in 1984. Not only he is the author of a delightful song, but he is the creator of a hymn that will be transmitted from generation to generation. Precious to me.
