Iris, who played several sold-out concerts at Greensburg’s Palace Theatre to celebrate his 75th birthday last year, and the Cruisers continue to rock on throughout the Pittsburgh region.

His decades of music include a gold record while with the Jaggerz for writing and singing the number one song, “The Rapper,” and a stint with Wild Cherry.

With the Cruisers, Iris and the band released more hits still populating classic radio, including “Agnes,” “Ah! Leah!” and “Do You Compute?”

The Beaver Falls native and resident and band members pioneered the “stacked vocals” style, yielding songs such as “Love is Like a Rock” and “That’s the Way Love Ought to Be.”

Over the years, the band has toured with artists including Journey, Bon Jovi, Ted Nugent and Hall & Oates, continuing to record and play regional clubs and halls.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
