Phil Seymour, born Philip Warren Seymour on May 15, 1952, is best remembered as one-half of the creative force behind the Dwight Twilley Band, co-writing, with Dwight Twilley, some of the finest pop songs of the era such as the classic "I'm on Fire". After two albums came out (1976's 'Sincerely' and 1978's 'Twilley Don't Mind'), Seymour left to pursue a solo career, his singer-songwriter work perhaps peaking with his 1981 power pop hit "Precious to Me".
