Jimmy Ellis Dies at 74
By Liz Raftery
March 9, 2012

Jimmy Ellis, the voice behind the dance floor anthem "Disco Inferno," passed away Thursday in South Carolina. He was 74.

Ellis died of complications from Alzheimer's Disease, his daughter told the New York Times.

Ellis was the lead singer of Philadelphia-based funk band The Trammps, which released several R&B singles in the 1970s, including their Top 10 hit "Disco Inferno."

The song with its infectious "burn, baby, burn" refrain helped propel sales of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack to 15 million, making it the second highest selling soundtrack of all time (behind The Bodyguard).
