CLEVELAND, Ohio - Sonny Geraci, the Cleveland-born pop singer who scored national hits as lead singer of The Outsiders in the 1960s and Climax in the 1970s, has died, according to multiple media reports. He was 69, and had been in ill health since suffering a brain aneurysm in 2012.

Geraci, a graduate of John Adams High School, became lead singer of The Starfires in 1964. The band, founded by guitarist and songwriter Tom King soon changed its name to The Outsiders and put four singles on the U.S. pop charts during the late 1960s, including "Time Won't Let Me, " "Girl in Love, " "Help Me Girl" and "Respectable (What Kind of Girl Is This), " a remake of the Isley Brothers tune.

Geraci left the band in 1970, striking out on his own and eventually forming the band Climax with Walter Nims, who had been a member of both the Starfires and The Outsiders. That group later scored a Top 3 single with "Precious and Few, " written by Nims. Climax disbanded in 1975.

Geraci left the music business in the early 1980s, but tried a comeback, under the pseudonym Peter Emmett, in 1983, releasing an unsuccessful album on MCA. Later, he played the oldies circuit, performed for a time with the Grass Roots and toured from 2007-2012 as Sonny Geraci and the Outsiders.

Interesting fact
The most common methods of printing on CD are offset printing, silkscreen printing and inkjet printing. Silkscreen printing is most suitable for custom cd printing small run, but the more colours are used the more expensive is this method. In the inkjet printing method, the ink is applied to a special absorbent layer. In this case, you need to use special disks for ink-jet printing which are marked as "printable". The most universal and economical way for small and medium print runs is printing on a sticker, that may be transferred to a CD.
