Claude lost his battle with leukemia on June 2, 2001.  His music will remain in the heart of his family, and all who knew him.

Bittersweet was formed in 1971 as a trio that quickly turned into a five-piece group.  Bittersweet featured the vocals and energy of Steve and John with the rest of the group singing backup and providing a strong musical accompanyment.
