As the news spreads regarding Survivor’s intentions of suing Kim Davis and Mike Huckabee over their unauthorized use of their seminal hit “Eye Of The Tiger,” we have enjoyed seeing bandleader and Berwyn native Jim Peterik’s name appear in nearly every incarnation of the story. “The song has motivated thousands through the years to reach beyond their limits,” Peterik told NBC. “Its use for the release of Kim Davis does not support my views or my politics.”
In addition to “Eye Of The Tiger,” Peterik penned “Vehicle” for Ides Of March. We reached out to him during the conception of Ultra-High Frequencies: The Chicago Party in search of a suitable master for another one of his compositions, “Fire In The Groove,” performed by Marzette Griffith during Episode 3 of The Chicago Party. Jim found a piano demo featuring Marzette’s vocals, then a more elaborate version of the song voiced by Dave Bickler of Survivor, but could never put his hands on Griffith’s broadcast version. Despite Peterik’s provenance in the world of anthemic rock, he was always very cool with Numero staff and very generous with his time. So the Numero Group would like to officially announce our endorsement of JIM PETERIK for victorious party in this lawsuit. Good luck, Jim! May we suggest playing “Eye Of The Tiger” as you enter the courtroom?
