SONGWRITOBIT: Randy Vanwarmer, who had a hit in the dog-end years of the 70s with Just When I Needed You Most, has died. The 48 year old was being treated for leukemia at a Seatlle Hospital. Best remembered for the song that was a hit for him when he was just 18 - and for being the puncline to a tortured gag about heaters for a passion-wagon - VanWarmer had carved out a small niche for himself as a songwriter, writing US number one hits for Alabama and The Oak Ridge Boys. Although born in Colorado, he spent much of his childhood in Britain, growing up in Cornwall.
