Hi-Five lead singer dies at 31

This takes me completely by surprise. Tony Thompson, lead singer of 90s R&B group Hi-Five, which logged in one #1 hit back in 1991 with I Like The Way (The Kissing Game) and two other top 10 hits, I Can’t Wait Another Minute and She’s Playing Hard To Get, died last June 1 of an apparent drug overdose.

The native Texan released his own album in 1995, the independent Sexsational. Thompson was pretty good, and this is a bit of a shock to me, because I had two of Hi-Five’s three albums. Wow, sad. Will post a couple of Hi-Five mp3s later for you to listen to.
