1979 Jerry Lynn Williams – Gone

williams-jerry-lynn-1979Gone is an album by Jerry Lynn Williams, released in 1979.

Jerry Lynn Williams (1948–2005) was a rock music singer and composer. He wrote such hits as “Forever Man,” “See What Love Can Do,” “Something’s Happening,” “Running on Faith” and “Pretending” for Eric Clapton. He contributed two songs, “Real Man” and “I Will Not Be Denied” to Bonnie Raitt’s 1989 Grammy Award winning album Nick of Time. He had previously written material for Raitt’s 1986 album Nine Lives. He also wrote songs for Robert Plant, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimmie Vaughan. As a performer, he released albums on Warner Bros. Records and CBS Records during the 1970s, and his break as a songwriter came when Delbert McClinton’s cover of a song from his second album, “Givin’ It Up for Your Love,” reached the Top 40.
