Biography

James Griffin (b. 10 August 1943, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, d. 11 January 2005, Nashville, Tennessee, USA), although overshadowed by David Gates, was a singer-songwriter with Bread. After leaving the group, Griffin continued to write and recorded a self-titled album in 1977 on Polydor Records. After recording several singles for Shoe Records in Memphis he released, Griffin&Sylvester, in 1981, a collaboration with Terry Sylvester of the Hollies. Griffin was part of Black Tie with Billy Swan and Randy Meisner, which made a superb, goodtime album, When The Night Falls, in 1986. Griffin then teamed up with Rick Yancey and Richard Mainegra (b. New Orleans, Louisiana, USA), who had enjoyed a US pop hit with ‘Rings’ as part of Cymarron in 1971. Yancey had played guitar for Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings, while Mainegra had written Elvis Presley’s hit single ‘Separate Ways’. As the Remingtons, they released a close-harmony single, ‘A Long Time Ago’, and an album that, in some respects, sounded similar to Bread.
