Pat Upton


Following the demise of his band the Spiral Starecase, lead vocalist and guitarist Pat Upton came back back again to his hometown of Geraldine, Alabama and took stock. Soured with the vagaries of the business enterprise end of rock and roll & move, he place his profession on keep and his lifestyle in self-imposed exile, developing his golfing habit to a significant degree. Following a downtime period, he eased himself back to it, doing program work and lastly landing a long lasting job being a back-up vocalist in Rick Nelson’s Rock Canyon Music group. He remained with Rick for quite some time (he is able to be noticed on Nelson’s Playing to Win record) until house and hearth beckoned once again, opening up an area nightclub in Guntersville, his membership being the final place Nelson proved helpful before traveling out that evening to his fiery loss of life in a airplane crash in 1985. Once more, Upton eased out of music, and then be known as on once again when he became a mainstay from the California-based oldies present 30 Years Of Rock’n’Roll in the past due 1980s. Still a lot more than with the capacity of stealing the present with only his wonderful tenor tone of voice, Pat Upton continues to be active, composing and recording fresh material and carrying out when he damn well feels as though it.
