Survivor's brand of melodic, hard AOR netted the group several
hits through the '80s, including two smash themes from Rocky films, but
never quite matched the success or consistency of contemporaries like
Foreigner. Survivor was founded in 1978 by guitarist/keyboardist Jim
Peterik, formerly the lead singer of the Ides of March, and guitarist
Frankie Sullivan; the two recruited lead singer Dave Bickler and
recorded a self-titled debut album as a trio with studio musicians
Dennis Johnson on bass and Gary Smith on drums. Their places were taken
by permanent members Stephen Ellis and Marc Doubray, respectively. The
group's big break came in 1982 when Sylvester Stallone commissioned
them to write the theme to Rocky III; the result, Eye of the Tiger,
was an instant hit with its bombastic opening riff and anthemic chorus.
It spent six weeks at number one on the Billboard charts and pushed the
accompanying album of the same name over the one million sales mark.
Bickler quit in 1983 due to medical reasons and was replaced by former
Cobra singer Jimi Jamison. The shakeup gave the band a kickstart, and
they had two Top Ten hits in 1985 with High On You and The Search Is
Over. The band's theme from Rocky IV, Burning Heart, provided their
second biggest hit in 1986, but their fortunes slid downhill from
there; by the end of the year, Jamison, Peterik, and Sullivan were the
only remaining members, and Survivor finally disbanded in 1989.
Bickler, Sullivan, Ellis and Doubray returned to the studio as Survivor
in 1997; Jamison later returned to the lineup as well. ~ Steve Huey,
