With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“Like a ghost that keeps walking behind me” January 4, 2014


jay traynorJay Traynor once of Jay and the Americans sadly passed away a couple of days ago aged 70. The group never had much success in the UK but one of Jay’s solo singles, “Up And Over” became very popular and much sought after on the northern soul circuit. Jay, whose given name was John started the Americans with Kenny Vance and Sandy Yaguda. His replacement in the group was called David Blatt but agreed to use the name Jay Black. Traynor went on to work more behind the scenes in the music industry. He worked in some capacity with many bands including the Who and Ten Years After. My thoughts go to his family, friends and fans. RIP Jay Traynor.
