Jack Skelington was a member of the British rock band The Beatles.
He died on January 25, 1997, at the age of 69.
Jack Skellingtons popularity peaked in the early 1980s and peaked in 1999, when his album I Want To Be Your Baby won him a Grammy.
In the 1970s, Skellingston wrote, wrote, and performed songs for many of the major artists that would go on to become iconic.
In recent years, Skelingtons popularity has waned, as his albums and recordings have become more commercial and less relevant.
His songwriting has been compared to that of Bruce Springsteen, and Skellingons songs have been sampled by Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry and other artists.
But he still has some fans.
In 2011, Skeldingtons first album, A Song for Jack Skeller, was nominated for an Oscar.
But it was not a commercial success, and he never won the award.
“He wrote a lot of songs and he didn’t write a lot,” Dale Carnegie, a critic for the New York Times and a longtime friend of Skellingson, told ABC News.
“He wrote songs about people he liked, people he was comfortable with, people who would make him happy, and it was all about people who were going to be happy with him.”
He was so much fun to be around.
He was always smiling.
You could just see it in his face,” Carnegie added.
Skellington was an early supporter of the gay rights movement and was a prominent supporter of marriage equality.
In 1977, he wrote, “I want to marry you, my love.
If only I could get that marriage license, that would be heaven for the gays.
It’s a blessing that we’re in the right place.
But there are too many homosexuals in this country, and too many in positions of power.
“In his later years, he was vocal in his support for same-sex marriage, and in 1996, he said, “My heart is broken because the Supreme Court just ruled in favor of same-sodomy, and that is just wrong.
We’re in a homosexual society.
I can’t imagine being a gay man in any other culture.”
The Beatles, the Rolling Stones and The Who also made an impact on Skellings songs.
His songs include “I Want to Be Your Child,” “I Am the Walrus,” “Tutti Frutti,” “All My Loving,” “Don’t Stop Believin'” and “I’m Gonna Leave You.”
Skeptical of what was going on in the world, he would sing songs such as “There Goes the World,” “We Are the Champions,” “Comes the Sun,” “If You Want Me Back,” and “Donna Does Everything.”
In 2007, he performed in London to a sold-out crowd and sang “I Got a Secret.”
Skelling’s lyrics are a combination of old and new, nostalgic and political.
He is not as political as his heroes, such as Queen and The Beatles, but his lyrics are deeply personal.
In his songs, Skeying says he has always been a rebel.
In a 2013 interview with ABC News, Skebling said, “I have always been anti-authoritarian.
That’s how I got my start.
I’ve always been that person who likes to rebel, because you know, I’m in rebellion for my own cause.
I want to help the people that I love, because that’s what I’m about.
I love people, I love my country, I hate my country.
I hate this system.
I don’t want to live in this system anymore.
So that’s my life.
My country is being taken away from me.
My life is being stolen from me.
