The Skyliners are an American doo wop group from Pittsburgh fronted by Jimmy Beaumont. The original lineup included Wally Lester, Jack Taylor, Joe Versharen, and Janet Vogel. They were best known for their 1959 hit, "Since I Don't Have You". Popular covers by Chuck Jackson, Don McLean, Guns N' Roses, and Ronnie Milsap have helped keep the song in the public consciousness. They had a few other minor hits, including "The Loser" (1965) and "This I Swear". Their current lineup includes, in addition to Beaumont, Nick Pociask, Dick Muse, Mark Groom, and Donna Groom.
