Eddie Rabbitt

By age 12, Rabbitt was a proficient guitar player, having been taught by his scoutmaster, Bob Scwickrath. After his parents divorced, he dropped out of school at age His mother, Mae, explained that Eddie "was never one for school [because] his head was too full of music.

He later won a talent contest and was given an hour of Saturday night radio show time to broadcast a live performance from a bar in Paterson, New Jersey. The song went gold and cast Rabbitt as one of Nashville’s leading young songwriters. This song led to a contract offer from Elektra Records.

Rabbitt signed with Elektra Records in His first single under that label, " You Get to Me ", made the top 40 that year, and two songs in , " Forgive and Forget " and " I Should Have Married You ", nearly made the top These three songs, along with a recording of "Pure Love", were included on Rabbitt’s self-named debut album. In , his third album, Rabbitt , was released, and made the top five on Country Albums chart. By that time, he had a good reputation in Nashville, and was being compared by critics to singer Kris Kristofferson.

Crossover success[ edit ] While still relatively unknown, Rabbitt toured with and opened for crossover star Kenny Rogers , and also for Dolly Parton on a number of dates during her tour. It produced Rabbitt’s first crossover single, " Every Which Way But Loose ", which topped country charts and reached the top 30 on both the Billboard Hot and Adult Contemporary, and was featured in the Clint Eastwood movie of the same name.

The song also broke the record for highest chart debut, entering at number The title track became Rabbitt’s third straight single to reach the top five on the Country, Adult Contemporary, and Billboard Hot charts. The album ultimately reached gold status, Rabbitt’s last album to do so. He teamed up with another country pop crossover star, Crystal Gayle , on " You and I ", which was included on his album Radio Romance.

The duet reached number one on the Billboard Country chart and became a pop smash, peaking at number seven and number two, respectively, on the Billboard Hot and Adult Contemporary charts. It was used as a love theme for a couple on the soap opera All My Children. Late career[ edit ] During the s, Rabbitt moved further from crossover-styled music. The illness and subsequent death of his son put his career on hold following the RCA Records release Rabbitt Trax , which included the number one " Both to Each Other Friends and Lovers ", a duet with country pop star Juice Newton.

The album also included " American Boy ", a patriotic tune popular during the Gulf War [19] and used in Bob Dole ‘s presidential campaign. Rabbitt was among the many country singers who suffered a dramatic decline in chart success beginning in That year, he released Ten Rounds , which produced the final charting single of his career, " Hang Up the Phone ".

Following that release, he left Capitol Records to tour with his band Hare Trigger. In , Rabbitt signed with Intersound Records , but was soon diagnosed with lung cancer. After a round of chemotherapy , he released the album Beatin’ the Odds. In , he released his last studio album, Songs from Rabbittland. Musical styles[ edit ] Rabbitt used innovative techniques to tie country music themes with light rhythm and blues-influenced tempos.

His songs often used echo , as Rabbitt routinely sang his own background vocals. In a process called the "Eddie Rabbitt Chorale", Rabbitt compensated for what Billboard Magazine described as a "somewhat thin and reedy voice" by recording songs in three-part harmonies. Rabbitt remarked that he liked "a lot of the old Memphis sounds that came out of Sun Records " during the s, and that he "wanted to catch the magic of a live band.

You know what you’re getting and you like it He stated that the music was "inciting a generation" and that it had helped to contribute to the high rates of teenaged pregnancy, high-school dropouts, and rapes during this period.

Rabbitt said he had "an affinity for animals" and kept the bird for a while before giving it to a farmer. Before his Rocky Mountain Music tour, the monkey bit Rabbitt, leaving his right arm in bandages. Timmy was diagnosed with biliary atresia upon birth. The condition required a liver transplant for survival and he underwent one in , but the attempt failed and he died. He had been diagnosed with the disease in March and had received radiation treatment and surgery to remove part of one lung.

No media outlets reported the death until after the burial at the family’s request. The news came as a surprise to many in Nashville, including the performer’s agent, who "had no idea Eddie was terminal" and had talked to him often, remarking that Rabbitt "was always upbeat and cheerful" in the final months of his life.
