A Career Wrecker: In late 1982, Aaron flew to New York and posed topless for the men's magazine OUI. The magazine's March 1983 issue featured Aaron on the cover and in an interview. Aaron later concluded that posing for the magazine damaged her musical credibility; she regretted the decision and assigned blame for it to pressure from her manager.  Continues performing to this day

Mark Lindsay b. March 9, 1942 (age 75) Eugene, Oregon

Lindsay became lead singer and saxophone player in a band with Revere and several others. He suggested they call themselves "The Downbeats" after a magazine with the same title. They made some demo tapes in 1960 in Boise, Idaho, and signed with a record company called Gardena Records. The group scored their first national hit with the piano/sax instrumental "Like, Long Hair" which peaked at #38 in the Billboard charts on April 17, 1961.[2][3]

After changing personnel a few more times, the band recorded the song "Louie, Louie" about the same time that a rival Pacific Northwest band, The Kingsmen, recorded the song. The Kingsmen version was the one that charted nationally, but Mark and his bandmates also were gaining attention.
Paul Revere & the Raiders[edit]

Around the time "Louie, Louie" was recorded, they decided to use Paul Revere's name as a gimmick and bill themselves as "Paul Revere & the Raiders". They began to dress in Revolutionary War-style outfits. Mark Lindsay carried the theme a bit further by growing his hair out and pulling it back into a ponytail, which became his signature look.

7.   Bobby Curtola: Hitchhiker (Bobby Curtola)
45 Single: Tartan  Records (Tartan 101) 1961
Thunder Bay, ON
Produced  1961

Bobby Curtola b. April 17, 1943, Port Arthur ON (Thunder Bay)  d. June 4, 2016, Edmonton

In the fall of 1959, sixteen-year-old high school student Bobby Curtola went from pumping gas at his father’s garage in Thunder Bay, Ontario, to the life of a Teen Idol. Who would have known that within a year he would go from playing in his basement band “Bobby and the Bobcats” to recording his first hit single “Hand In Hand With You”. After performing on the Bob Hope Show in 1960, the charismatic Bobby, with his handsome boy next door looks was quickly finding himself within a whirlwind that we now refer to as “Curtolamania.”

David Woodhead: bass
Buddy Weston: banjo
Ron Sellwood: accordion
Norm Hacking: bg vocal
Produced by Tim Harrison -  1987
Recorded by George Axon with Jamie Sulek at Axon Music

If memory serves me well, he was originally from the Ottawa Valley, came to Toronto in the mid-80s and got involved with singer-songwriters like Norm Hacking and Tim Harrison. Harrison produced this album using some of the finest backup musicians on the burgeoning Toronto folk scene in 1987. The album was great but without proper management and a professional attitude to ‘making it’, Layeux rode a little crest of popularity in the Toronto folk world before petering out. He later did some with with Melwood Cutlery. No idea what he’s doing now.

From their website ¨These were heady times, rough bar gigs, lots of things that shouldn't have been done but we did anyway. All inhibitions where abandoned without any shame attached. Amid all that chaos we did manage to record an album, The Great Canadian Tragedy...”

Beyond Orton, Ontario, these guys were ever really known for one song: they recorded Bruce Good’s song The Rabbit, which was perfect for them. Country folk-rock about a rabbit who gets high on pot!

Corner Brook NL
Dick Nolan: vocal, guitar
Mickey McGivern: lead guitar
Mark McGivern: bass
Jerry Summers: drums
Buddy Cage: steel
Produced by Ben Weatherby, 1966
Recorded at Arc Sound, Toronto

Originally recorded by Waylon Jennings around 1968, it was a minor hit for him. Dick’s version, which I think is even better, is unfortunately imbued with playful panning problems; the producer got a new toy! It’s on every song on the album so it’s probably better to look for the mono version. Backing Dick up in the studio were Arc Records house band Mickey and the Mustangs.

Steel guitarist Buddy Cage (February 18, 1946 (age 71) Toronto) went on to have an incredibly successful career in the States.

He joined Ian & Sylvia’s new band, known as the Great Speckled Bird which was part of the Pan-Canadian Festival Express concert tour in 1970. It was on the Festival Express tour that the New Riders of the Purple Sage became acquainted with Cage. The New Riders were a psychedelic influenced country rock band that had been founded by Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, along with John Dawson and David Nelson. The New Riders and the Dead would perform concerts together, with Garcia playing pedal steel for the New Riders, then playing electric guitar and singing with the Dead. Near the end of 1971, Garcia left the New Riders, enabling them to headline their own concert tours. Buddy Cage was invited to join the band as Garcia's replacement.

Cage was the New Riders' pedal steel guitar player from 1971 to 1982, except for a period of about a year in the late 1970s. The New Riders were quite popular. They toured extensively, and released a number of albums. During this same period Cage continued working as a session musician, recording with various musical artists. In 1974 Bob Dylan asked him to play on recording sessions for the album Blood on the Tracks.

Dawn Patrol is the debut studio album by Night Ranger released in 1982. The band was named Ranger during the recording of the album. The first issues of the album were printed and ready to be shipped when it was discovered that there was a country band from California with the same name. The band decided to name themselves Night Ranger after the song that Jack Blades had written for the album. The record company destroyed the copies with the band name Ranger. Their first three albums, Dawn Patrol, Midnight Madness, and Seven Wishes, all reached RIAA Platinum status and garnered the band international fame.

Long Island NY

Vince Martell guitar, vocals
Carmine Appice drums, vocals
Produced by Shadow Morton - 1967
Recorded by Joe Veneri & Bill Stahl

They recorded five albums during the years 1967–69, before disbanding inn 1970. Originally called The Electric Pigeons, they changed their name to The Pigeons. Ahmet Ertegun, their label's founder and president, didn't like that name and told them to change it.

Carmine Appice: We tried to think up a new name but were getting nowhere until we played a gig at the Page 2 club on Long Island and ended up talking to a chick named Dee Dee who worked there. She told us how her grandfather used to call her Vanilla Fudge. Then she looked at us and added 'Maybe you guys should call yourselves that---you're like white soul music'. We liked it. We told our manager, Phil Basile. He liked it. We told Atlantic and they liked it, too. So Vanilla Fudge it was".

According to Ritchie Blackmore and Jon Lord, Vanilla Fudge's organ-heavy sound was a large influence on the British band Deep Purple, with Blackmore even stating that his band wanted to be a "Vanilla Fudge clone" in its early years.

On March 14, 1970, Vanilla Fudge played a farewell concert at the Phil Basile's Action House. After that, Bogert & Appice departed to go ahead with another group, Cactus, that they'd been planning since late 1969. In 1972 they left Cactus and formed Beck, Bogert & Appice with guitarist Jeff Beck.

Although the name of the band is Lumumba & that is also the name of the lead vocalist, this is really the work of Rim Kwaku Obeng. Obeng is a noted Ghanan drummer who played with Fela Kuti. Lumumba was recorded in 1974 in Los Angeles. Other than bassist Luther Coffey from Trinidad & guitarist David T. Walker from Los Angeles, all the other main musicians are from Ghana.

The Four Deuces were an American rhythm and blues vocal quartet, formed in the mid-1950s in Salinas, California. The band was started by lead singer Luther McDaniel, and recorded several songs before they broke up in 1959. While active, the Four Deuces had moderate but short-lived popularity in 1956, mainly along the West Coast, mostly due to the frequent radio airplay of their hit song, "W-P-L-J." which obviously hit the ears of a young Francis Vincent Zappa. Zappa has conceded, admiringly, that he could not have written a song any more absurd. They only released three singles before disbanding.

In '77 he formed The Sam Moon Band and released his debut album, NEW MOON in the spring of 1982. As a marketing ploy, there were two versions of the album - one with a red jacket and one that was black. All the songs were originals, occasionally co-written with other artists on the East Coast.
