Dwight Twilley

Still On Fire

In the summer of ’75 an inordinately handsome 24-year old Okie with a joint Sun Records/Elvis and British Invasion/Beatles fixation vaulted from out of nowhere into the Top 20 with the chiming/throbbing radio anthem “I’m On Fire.” Credited to The Dwight Twilley Band, it was the brainchild of Mrs. Twilley’s kid Dwight and his musical partner of nearly a decade, Phil Seymour. And while up until that point no one outside a select circle of Tulsa, Okla., musicians and Twilley and Seymour’s Shelter Records label bosses, Leon Russell and Denny Cordell, had even heard of the upstart songwriters, as the summer unfolded and the song blared from car radios everywhere, it looked to be the start of a beautiful career for the duo.
