The '80s were precious to me and Phil Seymour

18

December

Born in Tulsa, Phil Seymour was an early member of the Dwight Twilley Band. After he left the band in 1978, he sang backup for Tom Petty on songs like Breakdown and American Girl before scoring a No. 22 hit in 1981 with the catchy Precious to Me. The surprise ending to the video is to be seen and misunderstood. Seymour passed away in 1993 from cancer.
