I always loved the Outfield. I seen the band live in 1986 when they toured with Journey is Seattle Washington amazing concert!! I always use to try to sing and hit the same notes as him. I just got "Bangin" again and was remembering the 80's and how that was my favorite of all time album. I am sending the very best to Tony's wife and his daughters and grand children. I wish Peace to each of you

This is the first I am seeing his obituary. I was so sad to hear of his sudden passing last year. It was heartbreaking. My band tributed him at our next gig with Every Time You Cry, which was so hard to get through without shedding tears myself. Losing John was horrible as well. Though I never met either, it is crazy how music ties you to each other, especially being a musician myself. I have been a die hard fan since their first album. I was always hoping he would release more work with John. Such a unique pair who made amazing music, cover to cover, every album, love them all. Sending my condolences to his family and friends. The world lost another great light. RIP Tony.
