by The Prom Kings, feat. Chris Carney, lead vocal
Chris Carney (c.1979 to 2015) was an American 'rock' singer, with 'The Prom Kings', and reality TV star. Christopher Carney was born in Arkansas, USA, in about 1979. More recently a probation officer by trade, as well as being the lead singer of the band 'The Prom Kings' (which formed in the mid-2000s in Los Angeles, and is featured in this video), Carney also starred in the MTV reality series, "twentyfourseven". The first single by 'The Prom Kings', called "Alone," started getting plays on American 'rock' radio stations in January 2005, and their self-titled debut album was released in the August of that year. The selected song, "Blow", was featured in the movie "The Island", and was also used in a commercial for the DVD release of the film "Ghost Rider". The "twentyfourseven" reality show featured him and his younger brother Greg, and followed them during their move to Los Angeles to follow their musical dreams. However, the show was a flop and Carney's band broke up, leaving him allegedly "down and out". He returned to Hot Springs in 2007 (where his mother is mayor and his father is a pastor). He was later convicted on drugs charges, following which the judge gave him three choices: jail; a state-funded treatment centre; or a faith-based drug rehab. He chose the third option. Through an upturn in his fortunes however, he and former Disney star Tiffany Thornton became engaged in December 2009, tying the knot on November 12th 2011 at Garvan Woodland Gardens, in Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas. By March 2014 they had had two children together, but separated shortly after the second arrival. In May 2014, he reportedly accused her of abducting their two children. However, in September 2014, they reportedly reconciled. Chris Carney died in Arkansas as a passenger in a car accident (along with the driver, his good friend Ezekiel Blayton) on December 4th 2015, aged just 35. He leaves his wife plus his two sons.

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
