Description
Queen

Part macho and part fey, Queen used extravagance and theater to become one of the most popular bands in the '70s with hits like "We Are the Champions" and "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Post Fab Four
Coming from one of the greatest music groups of all time, what does one do next and what kind of expectations are there? Check out the solo efforts of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr and decide for yourself.

Dead Can Dance
Dead Can Dance is one of the ultimate cult groups on the 4AD label. Their music is part dream pop and part worldbeat and often incorporates music of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Cocteau Twins, The
A group whose ethereal and gossamer sound is synonymous with the label 4AD. Their sound falls in the ambient pop and dream pop styles of the 1980s and 1990s.

Moody Blues, The
Explore the lush psychedelic-era albums of the Moody Blues from 1967-1972 including "Nights in White Satin," "Question" and "Legend of a Mind" (aka the Timothy Leary song.)

Bee Gees, The
From their Beatlesque 1960s start to their late 1970s disco reign and beyond, the Bee Gees have weathered a lot as one of rock's most successful brother acts. Upon the death of Maurice Gibb in 2003, the remaining brothers Robin and Barry decided to stop performing as the Bee Gees.

Beatles, The
The first rock supergroup, the Beatles dominated pop/rock music from 1964 until their breakup in 1970. Their music continues today as a watermark in popular music.

Steely Dan
Steely Dan's albums have always been associated with studio perfection, solid hooks and complex harmonies encompassing jazz, traditional pop, blues and R&B. Their 2000 release, "Two Against Nature," won a Grammy Award for Album of the Year.

Rolling Stones, The
A carefully constructed, dangerous alternative to the bouncy Merseybeat (a la the Beatles), the Stones have always staked out the grittier, bad-boy side of rock.

Pink Floyd
Pink Floyd took their name from two bluesman (Pink Anderson and Floyd Council) indicating their first leanings toward R&B in the 1960s. They would go on to create landmark 1970s albums like 1973's "Dark Side of the Moon" and 1979's "The Wall."

Supertramp
Supertramp started out in 1969, funded by a Dutch millionaire who let keyboardist Rick Davies form the band of his dreams. Support was later withdrawn but nevertheless, Supertramp went on to fame.

Led Zeppelin
In the early '70s, one would find "zoso" graffiti everywhere. This was the fans' unofficial title of Zeppelin's fourth and most revered album containing the rock anthem "Stairway to Heaven."

Beach Boys, The
Beginning as a popular surf band in the early '60s and progressing to a top notch pop outfit in the mid to late '60s, the Beach Boy's music always transports the listener to sunny California.

Queen
Part macho and part fey, Queen used extravagance and theater to become one of the most popular bands in the '70s with hits like "We Are the Champions" and "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Carpenters, The
Brother and sister Karen and Richard Carpenter made their mark with well-crafted and arranged soft rock hits like "Rainy Days and Mondays" and "Top of the World" among their 12 Top Ten hits.

Who, The
The Who was one of the key groups of the British Invasion and the mod movement. Mod refers to Great Britain teenagers dressing in neo-Italions fashions and listening to American R&B in the mid '60s.

R.E.M.
More so then any other group, R.E.M. helped usher in the post-punk, American underground movement starting in the early '80s and influencing many other bands along the way.

Doors, The
With their blues-driven psychedelic approach, the Doors have proven widely influential to generations of subsequent rock acts. The band's focus was the dynamic and ultimately tragic leader Jim Morrison.

Simon & Garfunkel
From 1966-1970 the folk-rock duo of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel released four albums each progressively showcasing their evolving talent and culminating with the landmark album "Bridge Over Trouble Water."

Style Council, The
The Style Council charted a number of British hits with their distinctive take on American R&B. The act was composed primarily of ex-Jam member Paul Weller (guitar/vocals) and keyboardist Mick Talbot.

Hall & Oates
Daryl Hall and John Oates recorded some of the most memorable blue-eyed soul hits from the early '70s to the early '80s including such gems as "She's Gone," "Kiss On My List," "Private Eyes," and "Maneater."

Tears for Fears
The duo Tears for Fears' mid '80s release "Songs from the Big Chair" defined ambitious college rock at its best with classic cuts like "Shout" and "Everyone Wants to Rule the World."

Abba
Originally called Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha & Frida and later just ABBA, this Swedish pop group has held sway as one of the most enduring acts with hits like "Waterloo," "SOS," "Fernando" and "Dancing Queen."

U2
It would be hard to imagine the 1980s and 1990s without the sweeping, political work of U2. They were one of the few acts to practice what they preached in the belief in rock music's potential for creating change.

Eagles, The
The Eagles tenure as an act (1971-1982) closely mirrored the 1970s decade rise and fall. Perhaps no other band best captured the dark side of excess rampant in that decade as they did on their seminal "Hotel California" album.

Styx
One of the premier all-around rock acts of the 1970s, Styx was equally comfortable with arena rockers like "Lady," power ballads like "Babe" and concept albums like "Paradise Theater."

Electric Light Orchestra
ELO was one the rock acts to successfully marry elements of classical and rock music. Primarily driven by guitarist/composer Jeff Lynne the group's tour de force is their 1974 album "Eldorado."

Belle & Sebastian
Quirky, whimsical, unsettling and utterly engaging, Belle & Sebastian was formed in Glasgow Scotland in 1995. Their style is a rooted in the indie pop genre.

Van Halen
The winning combination of guitar virtuoso, Eddie Van Halen, and over-the-top showman singer, David Lee Roth, made Van Halen into one of the reigning hard-rock acts of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Journey
Journey's first three albums were jazz-rock oriented. After the addition of lead singer Steve Perry and a few more years time, their signature sound crystallized into commercial success on the 1981 release "Escape."

Aerosmith
Formed in 1970, Aerosmith's bluesy, swaggering style was reminiscent of an American version of the Rolling Stones. After a period of waning popularity they managed a well-staged comeback in the mid 1980s.

Jethro Tull
Jethro Tull staked a unique position with their blend of hard rock and folk. Their early 1970s releases "Aqualung" and "Thick as a Brick" are considered influential rock albums.

Toto
Toto's members were all professional studio musicians and very much in demand, which explains their expertly created song-craft on hits like "Rosanna" and "Africa."

Kraftwerk
Kraftwerk is considered the pioneer of the electronic music form. In the early 1970s, their conception of purely technologically-based music was completely new and without precedence.

Boston
The Boston "sound" was largely the creation of MIT graduate Tom Scholz who worked out the details in his 12-track basement recording studio. The band released only four albums over the course of almost 20 years.

Genesis
After the departure of Peter Gabriel in 1975, drummer Phil Collins assumed role of lead singer and the group started to move away from their '70s prog-rock sound toward a more mainstream sound into the '80s and '90s.

Lynyrd Skynyrd
The definitive southern rock band of the '70s, Lynyrd Skynyrd's hits remain popular with classic rock fans. A plane crash in 1977 killed several members just after the release of their sixth album "Street Survivors."

Monkees, The
Pre-packaged and made for TV as an American answer to the Beatles, the Monkees struggled for artistic credibility over the course of their four years as a band (1965-1969) in the mid to late 1960s. They made their mark in sunshine pop with hits like, "I'm a Believer," "Last Train to Clarksville" and their theme song "The Monkees."

Police, The
With just five studio albums over the course of five years (1978-1983) the Police tamed the rougher sides of punk into a successful artistic and commercial prospect with hits like "Roxanne" and "Every Breath You Take."

Byrds, The
The Byrds were a key influence in blending the energy of the British Invasion with elements of contemporary folk music. Their sound is built on the jangle of the 12-string Rickenbacker guitar coupled with rich harmonies.

Art of Noise, The
The Art of Noise took their name from the Italian futurist Luigi Russolo (1885-1947) who endeavored to break through the limitations of the cultivated, pure sounds of music.

Alan Parson's Project
Producer and engineer Alan Parsons organized the Project as a changing collection of musicians to realize his ambitious, thematic albums. His 1977 album, "I Robot," focuses on the question of man vs. machine.

Chicago
Originally called the "Chicago Transit Authority" and later just "Chicago," this group has had several personnel changes as well as style changes over the last four decades since its formation in 1967 in Chicago. The word "Chicago" appears on many of their album covers as demonstrated in these releases from 1972, 1975, 1976 and 1984.

Luna
One of the touchstone bands of the Indie sound, Luna's sound can be described as quirky and minimalist, featuring the distinctive vocals of lead singer Dean Wareham. The group was formed in 1991. In 2004, their seventh and final album "Rendezvous" was released.

10CC
This British art-pop band has always infused their music with sly commentary on other music styles. The group formed in 1970 and was active into the '80s.

America
Emerging in the very early '70s, soft rock was partially a retreat from the sounds of the '60s. America's music fits squarely in this style with their highly melodic and lush productions on hits such as "Ventura Highway."

Cars, The
Originally from Boston, The Cars, had a number of hits starting in the late '70s and continuing into the mid '80s. Their new wave sound had roots in proto-punk, garage rock and bubblegum pop.

B-52's, The
The B-52's are forever linked to being one of the major acts that put the college town of Athens, Georgia on the alternative music map as well as the band behind the zany single "Rock Lobster."

Crosby, Stills and Nash (and Young)
CSNY's impact on American cultural psyche can't be underestimated. Their music is intimately connected to the political and cultural upheavals of the late 1960s and into the 1970s.

The, The
Matt Johnson formed The The when he was just 17. He was inspired by the likes of Lennon, Barret and Buckley as well as post-punk industrialists Cabaret Voltaire and The Residents.

Flaming Lips, The
One of the great American Underground groups, the Flaming Lips hail from Oklahoma. Despite many personnel changes, the group has continued mine the outer reaches of pop music.

Ohio Players
These funksters from Ohio grabbed as much attention with their slick, horn-powered grooves as their eye-popping cover art. Their album "Honey" won a Grammy for best album package in 1972.

Heart
The great Seattle rock story preceding Nirvana are sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson who headed the group Heart from the mid '70s onward to become one of the seminal favorites of classic rock stations. Their early hits such as "Magic Man" and "Barracuda" were evocative of Led Zeppelin. The highlights of Heart's early live shows were in fact covers of Led Zeppelin tunes. Heart broke their early '80s slump with the blockbuster and highly polished 1985 self-titled effort.

Cure, The
With roots in punk, the Cure emerged in the '80s as one of the leading College Rock favorites. The group was noted for their slow, dark songs as well as lead singer Robert Smith's gothic appearance.

Roxy Music
Roxy Music's evolution traces a path from art-rock in the early '70s to sleek soul-pop in the early '80s. The original album cover of 1974's "Country Life," with two models in lingerie, created a stir upon initial release.

Beautiful South, The
After the Housemartin's breakup, lead singer Paul Heaton and drummer David Hemmingway formed the Beautiful South. Heaton's trademark witty and sometimes cynical lyrics are set against a jazzy pop sound.

Duran Duran
Duran Duran is the quintessential pin-up boy band of the '80s new wave/romantic period. Their reputation was built on solid tunes and appealing music videos like "Rio" and "Hungry Like the Wolf."

Red, Simply
The British, blue-eyed soul group Simply Red was formed by Mick "Red" Hucknall in 1984. 1986's "Holding Back the Years" was the start of a series of hits both in the US and worldwide.

Prefab Sprout
With little chart success but much critical acclaim, Prefab Sprout has turned out music that is effortlessly smart and sophisticated. Thomas Dolby produces on the majority of their albums.

Talk Talk
Though only releasing five albums, Talk Talk perhaps holds the record for the most radical style transformation from early new wave sensibilities to post/rock experimental style by their fifth and final album.

Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac evolved from blues in the late '60s to pop/rock a decade later. The group reunited to play President Clinton's 1993 inauguration where the classic "Don't Stop" became a trademark for his campaign.

Blondie
Blondie's roots lie in the punk/new wave movement of the late '70s. The band's commercial breakthrough album "Parallel Lines" contained the hits "Heart of Glass" and "One Way or Another."

English Beat, The
Ska evolved in the '60s in Jamaica and was subsequently revived by a number of young British bands in the late '70s. The English Beat was one of the most important Ska revivalist groups.

Red Hot Chili Peppers, The
Despite numerous setbacks, the Chili Peppers' brand of funk-punk had a dedicated following in the mid '80s. Their live acts were characterized by their trademark tube socks covering their privates.

Mannheim Steamroller
Mannheim Steamroller is the alias of conductor / composer Chip Davis. Musically, Mannheim covers anything from pop to classical and silly to sublime. The Mannheim Christmas series are especially popular.

Raspberries, The
Though they debuted in the early '70s, the Raspberries's power-pop harked back to the classic pop of the British Invasion no better heard than on their hit "Go All the Way." The band broke up in 1974.

Santana
More than any other artist, Santana is responsible for bringing Latin Rock to life as a popular genre in the late '60s and early '70s with virtuosic jams like "Evil Ways" and "Black Magic Woman."

Thompson Twins, The
Although not twins, this British trio scored a number of '80s synth pop hits like "Lies," "Hold Me Now" and "King for a Day." The group disbanded in 1993.

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
The premier punk cover artists, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes cover '60s and '70s songs from the likes of artists like Neil Diamond, James Taylor and Barry Manilow. Their punked up covers are suprisingly effective and enjoyable.

Eurythmics
One of the most memorable New Wave / Synth Pop acts of the '80s was the Eurythmics led by English duo, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart. Their initial popularity was based on eery, synthesized hits like "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" and "Here Comes the Rain" – that enjoyed worldwide popularity. The duo went on hiatus in 1990 to pursue solo careers and then reformed for 1999's "Peace."

Flock of Seagulls, A
A Flock of Seagulls is an '80s band that has received more than its share of criticism be it for their highly-robotic music style or their bizarre, teased haircuts. Criticisms aside, the Liverpool foursome did manage several memorable hits such as "I Ran (So Far Away)," "Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)" and "Space Age Love Song."

Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Progressive rock's first supergroup, Emerson, Lake & Palmer (ELP) helped define the progressive rock style that would later include artists like Yes and Alan Parsons Project. ELP often adapted classical music. Examples include Aaron Copeland in "Hoedown" on 1972's "Trilogy", Modest Mussorgsky on 1972's "Pictures at an Exhibition" and Alberto Ginastera's in "Tocatta" on 1973’s "Brain Salad Surgery."

Funkadelic
The musical style of Funkadelic is credited with fulfilling the blueprint of late '60s black rock artists Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone - blending elements of psychdelia, blues, soul and funk. Everything about the group is provocative-- their fusion of musical styles, album cover art ("Maggot Brain"), song titles ("Free Your Ass and Your Mind Will Follow"), and their subject matter as on their 1979 release "Uncle Jam Wants You."

Sigur Ros
Sigur Ros, or "Victory Rose" in their native language, is one of the few musical acts from the small North Atlantic country of Iceland. The group's sound is sweeping yet minimalist, complex yet simple as well as many other contridictory descriptions. Listening to their music can be described as the aural equivalent of viewing the rugged landscapes of their native land.

Talking Heads
Emerging from the New York punk scene with peers like the Ramones and Television, the Talking Heads took a more cerebral and subdued approach eventually leading stylistically into the New Wave genre. Between their first release in 1977 to their last in 1988, the group managed to win critical acclaim and compose a number of unforgettable tracks such as "Psycho Killer," "Burning Down The House" and "Take Me to the River," a song originally performed by Al Green.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
The Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers' initial sound was equally influenced by past influences, such as the Bryds and Bob Dylan, and current trends such as psychedelic, southern rock and new wave. This is best demonstrated on their 1979 commercially successful and critically acclaimed "Damn the Torpedoes." In the '90s Petty would take a more stripped-down approach in his music as on 1994's "Wildflowers" and 1999's "Echo."

Eels, The
The Eels is lead by singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mark Oliver Everett or "E." The Eels' 1996 debut "Beautiful Freak" generated much interest with its alternative radio hit "Novocaine for the Soul." Their 1998 sophomore effort "Electro-Shock Blues" presented a darker and more reflective mood as it was influenced by the recent deaths of E's sister and mother. "Daisies of the Galaxy" and "SoulJacker" followed in 2000 and 2001, respectively.

AC/DC
Crunching guitar power-chords and schoolboy uniforms are two of the trademarks of the Australian rockers AC/DC. Just after their U.S. and U.K. 1979's "Highway to Hell," lead singer Bon Scott literally drunk himself to death. The group hired a new singer, Brian Johnson, and achieved even greater success with the classic 1980 "Back in Black" release.

Ramones, The
The Ramones best captured the emerging '70s punk song ideal with three chords, simple melodies and lyrics and fast-paced playing. Songs that highlight these ideals include the favorites "Judy is a Punk," "Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment," the horror movie-inspired "Teenage Lobotomy" and "I Wanna Be Sedated." The New York group's members all adopted the name Ramone and dressed in trademark torn blue jeans and leather jackets in homage to '50s greaser rockers.

Jamiroquai
Updating '70s soul/funk with '90s dance rhythms while tackling timely social issues - the plight of Native Americans, homelessness, and the environment - Jamiroquai has produced a number of worldwide hits like "Virtual Insanity" and "When You Gonna Learn?" Londoner and band nucleus, Jason Kay, took the band name from a combination of the words "jam" and "Iroquois." The group's well-known logo is a silhouette of the medicine man wearing Kay's trademark buffalo hat.

Famous Session Bands
Four famous session bands in rock history include the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, the Funk Brothers, the Love Unlimited Orchestra and MFSB (Mother Father Sister Brother). Muscle Shoals and the Funk Brothers contributed to the emerging R&B, soul and funk sound in the '60s and '70s. The Love Unlimited Orchestra and MFSB contributed to the soul, funk and disco sound of the '70s.

Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, The
Named after a town in northwest Alabama, the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section was instrumental to the development of R&B from the early '60s onward and influenced the style labeled "Southern Soul." Muscle Shoals played back up on a number of diverse songs including Percy Sledge's "When a Man Loves a Woman" (1966), Etta James' "Tell Mama" (1968), Paul Simon's "Kodachrome" (1973) and Bob Seger's "Old Time Rock and Roll" (1978).

Sonny & Cher
While not the first husband and wife musical team, Sonny & Cher are certainly one of the most popular and endearing. They had been performing together since the early 1960s before their big breakthrough in 1965 with the song "I Got You Babe." They went on to a highly successful variety/comedy show from 1971-1974. Who can forget Cher's dresses! Upon the split up of their marriage, Cher went on to become an international diva of music and movies while Sonny eventually moved into politics.

Dread Zeppelin
"Led Zeppelin Music Inna Reggae Style" is the tagline for Dread Zeppelin who perform Led Zeppelin covers in a reggae style and Elvis Presley-like vocal delivery. Even Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant gave the group kudos for one of their cover songs. Hefty lead singer, Tortelvis (Greg Tortell) and crew serve up tongue-in-cheek album titles like 1990s "Un-Led-Ed" and 1991's "5,000,000" cover art work which mimics Led Zeppelin's 1971 "Led Zeppelin" cover.

Booker T. & the MG's
The "MG" in Booker T. & the MG's stands for "Memphis Group." They were the in-house band for the legendary Stax Records in Memphis from 1962 to 1971 playing on classic hits by Otis Redding, Carla Thomas, Sam & Dave and Wilson Pickett. On their own they released a series of southern soul instrumental albums. Their debut "Green Onions" in 1962 and 1967's "Hip Hug-Her" are perhaps their most popular songs.

White Stripes, The
The ex-husband/wife team of Jack and Meg White formed The White Stripes in Detroit in 1997 with Jack on guitar and Meg on drums. Their musical approach was simple, almost minimalist rock and roll. By their 2003 release "Elephant," it was evident that this approach found a very receptive audience as the album was widely praised and topped many end of year charts. Fans will notice that the duo favors red, white and black in their album cover design.

INXS
INXS formed in Sydney, Australia in 1977. The group became superstars in their homeland with 1982's "Shabooh Shooba" album and managed to get some college radio airplay in the U.S. as well with the single "The One Thing." Several albums later, 1987's "Kick" found the group at the peak of their international success with songs like "New Sensation" and "Need You Tonight." The untimely death of lead singer, Michael Hutchence, in 1997 sidetracked the band.

Yes
Yes was one the foremost and longest lasting progressive-rock/art rock groups. Formed in 1968 in Birmingham, England, the group's third album, 1971's "The Yes Album," composed entirely of original compositions, established the Yes sound – lush, layered, ever-changing time signatures, science fiction imagery and varied musical passages. By the early 1980s and after many personnel changes, the band struggled but reinvented itself briefly with the polished 1983 "90125" and the radio-friendly hit "Owner of a Lonely Heart."

Tony Orlando & Dawn
Tony Orlando along with the backing duo, Dawn (Joyce Vincent and Telma Hopkins), enjoyed considerable success from the early to mid 1970s with soft rock hits like "Candida" (1970), "Knock Three Times" (1971) and the sentimental blockbuster "Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Ole Oak Tree" (1974). Upon the success of their recordings, the trio began a variety TV show that aired from 1974-1976. Interestingly, their show started as a four-week summer replacement for "The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour."

Dead or Alive
When conjuring up an image of an androgynous, British singer, most will mention Boy George of "Culture Club" fame. But, before the Boy there was another boy, Pete Burns of the hi-NRG / dance group Dead Or Alive. The group achieved success with 1980s hits like "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" and "Brand New Lover." Resurfacing in the 2000s, Dead or Alive continues to spark controversy, particularly Burns' cosmetically enhanced appearance – the body of a ardent gym devotee and the face of a supermodel.

Gentle Giant
Gentle Giant was one of the more obscure British, progressive rock bands that emerged in the progressive rock period of the late 1960s and early 1970s. They released a dozen albums over the course of their career but never achieved the commercial success of other progressive acts like ELP, Yes or King Crimson. Musically, Gentle Giant fused elements of jazz, rock, classical and medieval vocal music and often in an experimental way with unusual time-signatures and tunings. A good starting point for a new listener would be their fourth release, 1972's "Octopus."

King Crimson
King Crimson is one of the most respected and longest-lived progressive rock acts. Starting with their acclaimed 1969 debut "In the Court of King Crimson," the group set the standard of progressive acts for years to come. Their music forged into the realms of jazz and classical music, setting them apart from the pop and psychedelic styles of the late 1960s. After their debut, the group went through many line-up changes, of which founder and guitarist Robert Fripp remained the one constant. The initial lineup also featured Greg Lake later of Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

Village People, The
A visible and vibrant gay-themed group, the Village People scored a number of dancefloor favorites in disco’s fading years from 1978-1980. The group recalls the late 1960s, early 1970s studio-contrived groups behind which there is usually a mastermind. In the Village People's case it was Jacque Morali and lead singer Victor Willis. Memorable, campy hits loaded with double entendres like "Y.M.C.A" and "In the Navy" are part of the Village People's legacy.

Asia
Truly a supergroup if ever there was, Asia fromed in 1981 with four highly accredited musicians. John Wetton from King Crimson were vocals and bass. Carl Palmer from Emerson, Lake & Palmer was drums. Steve Howe from Yes was vocals and guitar. Geoff Downs from Buggles and Yes was keyboards. Asia's 1982 self-titled debut featured the polished hits "Heat of the Moment" and "Only Time Will Tell" which set the blueprint for much of the group’s subsequent efforts.

Strokes, The
The Strokes major label debut, 2001's "This Is It" was hailed by many as a fresh and welcome sound. The group is part of the back-to-basics movement in rock music which includes other bands like "The White Stripes," "The Hives" and "The Vines." The Strokes eschew a mainstream rock approach instead providing a second-generation take on 1970s punk. The cover of the U.S. release of "This Is It" was changed to the less offending abstract pattern. Their sophomore release "Room on Fire" was released in 2003.

Quicksilver Messenger Service
The San Francisco Bay area band Quicksilver Messenger Service (QMS) was formed in 1965. Singer/songwriter Dino Valenti, author of the '60s hit "Get Together," was one of the group's members. Stylistically, QMS shared much in common with their contemporaries, Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead in playing acid and psychedelic rock. One of the group's best known tracks was a cover of the Bo Diddley tune "Who Do You Love?" which appeared on the 1969 "Happy Trails" album.
