New Survivor Singer Gets The Call; Sings The Hits

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Robin McAuley is the new singer for veteran rock band Survivor – and he has no illusions about what his job is.

As McAuley puts it: “Sing the hits, man.”

McAuley says he’s got four – count ’em, four – whole shows with his new band under his belt, something they call “rehearsing on stage.”

In McAuley’s words: “I guess the old singer wasn’t singing the hits there towards the end – and all I can say is, ‘We’re singing ’em now!”’

Survivor’s biggest hit, of course, was “Eye of the Tiger” from the Rocky III soundtrack – but McAuley says he’s remembering the lyrics to other hits like “High On You” and “The Search Is Over” as he sings them each night.

In his words: “I’ve had the lyrics taped up to the keyboards each night, but as soon as I see the first line, I remember, and say to myself, ‘Oh yeah, there’s this great song, too.”’
