R.I.P. Benny Mardones At Age 73

Singer songwriter Benny Mardones has died at age 73 after a 20-year battle with Parkinsons Disease.

Benny was a recording artist from 1970 through to 2017 but it was his 1980 hit ‘Into The Night’ he was best known for.

‘Into The Night’ is one of those rare songs to chart twice. It returned to the US chart in 1989 after a station in Los Angeles put it back on its playlist.

Two years ago a remix was released.

Benny Mardones was originally a songwriter. His songs were recorded by Chubby Checker and Brenda Lee.

Benny left school in 1964 and joined the US Navy. He served in Vietnam. He was married at 21, and then again in the mid-80s. In 2011, he married for a third time.

Benny died at his home in Menifee, California.
