The skyline is and made up of a bunch of musicians from the Pittsburgh area. They began their physical journey at the end of the 1950s and the early 1960s when they got together and started recording.
They had several classics and famous songs before trouble started to befall the band. First some of the members laughed and had to be replaced. Then one of the members committed suicide. Later, some retired. And one even died in a car accident.
Nevertheless, they kept recording and making music that span generations. Jimmy Beaumont actually continued to play music with the Skyliners until he died.
