[01/14/17]   Our Good Friend Jimmy Fortney passed away last night: Jimmy had been suffering with cancer for the past few months.

IF YOU KNEW JIMMY - Jim and his band SAVAGE rocked many local bars and clubs, plus our favorite locations, like The Pits, Fancy Dancer, and Lee District Park. Jim & the Boys of SAVAGE brought Rock'n Roll to Va. Hills and grew it from there. Winners of the almost famous Louie's Rock City's Battle of the Bands put them on the map in the late 70's which they rode the wave for a few years, pretty much becoming the house band at Route one's Fancy Dancer (formerly 1320 Club).

SAVAGE members over the years: Jimmy Fortney, Randy Brown, Tommy Lightner, Dave Fortney, Albert Rose, Jimmy Deadmore, Gary Thomas, Mark Ellmore, and a few more we'll add later when the tears clear. Jimmy was a member of Hayfield's Class of '75.

He rocked during the night, and formed a Landscaping Co. with his older bro Dave for a more steady stream of non-rock reality. Rumors tell us they sold the business within the last year or so. No need to tell Jimmy to keep on rocking... as his many friends know, he never stopped. Jim, You'll Be Missed.

At Richard Nixon's second inaugural parade, Jan 20, 1973 they had local marching bands join together to do a "march-by". There were so many students that you couldn't hear the drums from the front of the band, Not sure how it sounded, and had forgotten we did this. Growing up in Alexandria offered so many interesting events.

Randy Brown's band 'Old School' brought this motley crew back together from Reunion Weekend. Randy and his 5 piece Rock 'n Roll band tore the place up for 4 long sets that had as many people that could fit on the dance floor dancing. The OTHERS were outside smoking and 'shaking it off'.
