Sonny Geraci of Climax & the Outsiders Suffers Brain Aneurysm

While nothing has been formally announced by his management or family, it appears that Sonny Geraci of the groups Climax and the Outsiders suffered a brain aneurysm last month and may still be in a coma.

A post on Yogananda.net reported of the situation back on April 14 with the following from a writer called "Looking Glass":
Hello everybody: I received news yesterday that our good friend, Sonny Geraci, lead singer of The Outsiders (Time Won't Let Me) and Climax (Precious and Few), had a brain aneurism Sunday and has been hospitalized since. I was told, as of yesterday he is unable to communicate. Please keep him in your prayers.
Additional information was reported on Tuesday at the Oldies Music site:
Details are sketchy, but it's reported that Sonny Geraci (lead singer of the Outsiders and Climax) suffered a brain aneurysm (specifically, an arteriovenous malformation) a month ago. His family has said that he has been through two brain surgeries with no complications. He is currently in Intensive Care. Cards can be sent to his business address:
Precious Time Productions
30799 Pine Tree Rd. #135
Pepper Pike, OH 44124
Geraci was first a member of Cleveland's Outsiders who hit with Time Won't Let Me (1966/#5 Pop). In the early 70's, he moved to the group Climax and whose biggest hit was Precious and Few (1972/#3 Pop).

I lost my mother at age 62 from the same illness.

I wish him the best, and he and his family are in my prayers.

Have not heard anything in a long time about Sonny. But I wish him the best. I loved him sooooo very much and hope all is well.

I could listen to Precious & Few over & over again. Then followed by Life & Breath. I would love to have email conversation with him from Australia.

One of my favourite all-time singers in the 70s, just a fantastic voice. Loved "Precious and Few," even after all these years. I do hope and pray that Sonny is well and taking it easy. Thank you for sharing your gift with the world. God bless you always. XO

Geraci worked for a window company after his Outsiders stint. He backdated the contract and ripped me off.
