JAMES BURKE:  singer for Five Stairsteps

aged:  70

cause:  pneumonia 

the article:  Five Stairsteps singer James Burke dies at 70 (msn.com)

Five Stairsteps Wiki:  Five Stairsteps - Wikipedia

to be honest, i had not heard of the band until i recently posted the new Paul Stanley single  "Ooh Child" which was their biggie back in 1970.
they were a five sibling group.
strange that both A.J Croce and Paul Stanley both cover the song at similar times then the original singer dies...

anyway,
only thing i know by them:
