McKEESPORT, Pa. — The lead singer of the doo-wop group the Sky­lin­ers, who co-wrote the iconic bal­lad “Since I Don’t Have You,” has died. Jimmy Beau­mont was 76.

Beau­mont’s fam­ily says he died in his sleep on Oct. 7 at his home in McKeesport, Penn­syl­va­nia.

Joe Rock would even­tu­ally man­age the Sky­lin­ers. He was help­ing pro­mote Beau­mont’s for­mer group, the Cres­cents, when Rock wrote some lyrics lament­ing his girl­friend’s im­pend­ing de­par­ture for flight at­ten­dants’ school out of state. That was 1958, and Beau­mont was 18.

Beau­mont, of Pitts­burgh, set the lyrics to mu­sic, and a hit was born.

“I had been lis­ten­ing to all the doo- wop groups from that pe­riod — The Plat­ters, the Moon­glows. I guess just from lis­ten­ing it came out of me,” Beau­mont told the Pitts­burgh Post-Gazette in a 2009 in­ter­view.

The song has been cov­ered by Bar­bra Streisand, Patti La­Belle, Art Gar­funkel, Don McLean and even Guns N’ Roses.

The Jay­cox- Ja­worski Fu­neral Home in McKeesport is han­dling ar­range­ments. Beau­mont’s fu­neral was in Cor­pus Christi Parish in McKeesport.
