The Very Best of Bobby Vee by Bobby Vee
Bobby Vee (born April 30, 1943) is an American pop music singer.
Born Robert Thomas Velline in Fargo, North Dakota, United States, his 1961 performance of the song “Take Good Care Of My Baby” went to No.1 on the Billboard U.S. charts and on the U.K. Charts. Known primarily as a performer of Brill Building pop-factory singles, Vee nevertheless became a bona fide star, and went on to record a string of international chart hits in the 1960s, including “Devil or Angel”, “More Than I Can Say”, “Run to Him”, “Rubber Ball”, “The Night Has A Thousand Eyes”, and “Come Back When You Grow Up”.
Bobby Vee appeared in several British and American motion pictures as well as the Scopitone series of early film-and-music recordings, which predicted the rise of rock music videos. Vee is still active and touring internationally as a performer as of 2006. His sons and daughter have shown much interest in his music career and legacy, some of who are in a band known as “The Vees”.
Vee’s career began amid tragedy. On “The Day the Music Died” (3 February 1959) — the day Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson were killed in the crash of aircraft N3974N near Clear Lake, Iowa —
Monument at Crash Site, September 16, 2003.
fifteen-year-old Velline and a scratched-together band of Fargo, North Dakota schoolboys calling themselves Bobby Vee and the Shadows volunteered for and were given the unenviable job of filling in for Holly and his band The Crickets in the lineup of the traveling “Winter Dance Party” rock and roll show in Moorhead, Minnesota in which Holly was to have performed. Their engagement there was a success, setting in motion a chain of events that led to Vee’s career as a popular singer. Bobby Vee regularly performs at the Winter Dance Party memorial concerts in Clear Lake to this day.
Bobby Vee is a recipient of the state of North Dakota’s Roughrider Award and his contribution to the genre has been recognized by the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.

Samuel Paul “Sammy” Kershaw (born February 24, 1958, in Kaplan, Louisiana) is an American Country and Western music singer and songwriter.
He is a relative of Cajun music legend, Doug Kershaw.
After the death of his father when Sammy was 11, he worked a variety of jobs by day while playing roadhouses at night to support his family.
During that time, he opened shows for Ray Price, Merle Haggard and George Jones while barely into his teens. When the pressures of growing up fast took their toll in the form of a serious drug and alcohol problem, he quit his bad habits cold turkey in 1988 and took a break from music to work as a remodeling supervisor at Wal-Mart. Kershaw married and divorced Lorrie Morgan.

Paul Revere & the Raiders is an American rock band that saw enormous mainstream success in the 1960s, best-known for hits like “Indian Reservation (The Lament Of The Cherokee Reservation Indian)” (1971), “Steppin’ Out”(1965), “Kicks”(1966), “Let Me” (1969) and “Hungry” (1966).
The band, initially located in Boise, Idaho, started as an instrumental rock outfit led by organist Paul Revere (legal name Paul Revere Dick; original stage name Revere Dick ), whose distinctive given names were in honor of the Revolutionary War hero. In his early twenties, Revere already owned several restaurants in Caldwell, Idaho, and first met singer Mark Lindsay while picking up an order of hamburger buns from the bakery where Lindsay worked. Lindsay joined Revere’s band in 1958. Originally called The Downbeats, they changed their name to Paul Revere & The Raiders in 1960 on the eve of their first record release for Gardena Records. The band scored their first Pacific Northwest regional hit in 1961 with “Like, Long Hair”, an instrumental. Revere was drafted, became a conscientious objector and worked at a mental institution for a year and half of deferred service. After reforming the band, they attracted national attention again with a cover of “Louie Louie”, which was picked up by Columbia Records although beaten in the charts by The Kingsmen’s version.

Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods shot to prominence in 1974 with “Billy, Don’t Be a Hero.” Sales that topped three million copies brought the group a gold record. The single spent two weeks in the top spot on the charts. The number one single was the band’s greatest success, but it didn’t mark the first time that the group charted. Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods made a showing on the charts with “Someone Special” in 1972 and “Deeper and Deeper” the following year. The band was ten years old when “Billy, Don’t Be a Hero” made such a splash, and it had already performed as the opening act for such artists as Herman’s Hermits, the Box Tops, the Osmond Brothers, the Rascals, the Grass Roots, and Paul Revere & the Raiders. The group also performed on American Bandstand. After “Billy, Don’t Be a Hero,” the band took “Who Do You Think You Are” into the Top 20. “The Heartbreak Kid” followed, reaching the Top 40. The group charted again with “House on Telegraph Hill” and “Our Last Song Together.”
Donaldson, whose real name is Robert Walter Donaldson, sang and played keyboard and the trumpet. The group also included lead vocalist James Michael Gibbons on bass and trumpet; lead vocalist Richard Leon Joswick on percussion; Gary James Coveyou on vocals, woodwinds, and reeds; David Alan Krock on vocals, trumpet, and bass; Richard Brunetti on vocals, percussion, and drums; and Earl Baker Scott on vocals and guitar. Danny Loveland, a co-vocalist on the Heywoods’ number one single, dropped out in 1975 to pursue a solo career and record “Black Is Black.” Originally a drummer, Loveland began singing because the group kept losing its lead singers. When he gave up singing, the Kansas native launched a disco that he named Backstage. He went on to establish a restaurant in Bangkok, Thailand.
Freddie King (September 3, 1934 – December 28, 1976) was an influential American blues guitarist and singer, best known for his recordings “Hide Away“, “Have You Ever Loved A Woman” and “Going Down“.

Hootie & the Blowfish
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Hootie and the Blowfish)
Jump to: navigation, search
Hootie & the Blowfish is an American pop-rock band, originally formed at the University of South Carolina by Darius Rucker, Dean Felber, Jim “Soni” Sonefeld and Mark Bryan.
Their debut album was Cracked Rear View (1994) and it was an instant success, ultimately selling over 16 million copies in the U.S. and becoming the best-selling album of 1994. The album was propelled by four hits, “Hold My Hand”, “Let Her Cry”, “Only Wanna Be With You”, and “Time”. In 1995, Hootie and the Blowfish and Bob Dylan reached an out-of-court settlement for the group’s unauthorized use of Dylan’s lyrics in their song “Only Wanna Be With You.” The band won the “Best New Artist” award at the 1996 Grammy Awards.
In 1995, Hootie & the Blowfish contributed the song “Hey Hey What Can I Do” to the Encomium tribute album to Led Zeppelin. Also, their cover of Canadian group 54-40′s “I Go Blind”, originally released on the soundtrack to the TV series Friends in 1995, did not appear on Cracked Rear View or Fairweather Johnson, but nevertheless became a surprise hit at radio in 1997 after three singles from Fairweather Johnson had been released. Both “Hey Hey What Can I Do” and “I Go Blind” were later released on the rarities/B-sides collection, Scattered, Smothered and Covered.
Hootie & the Blowfish appeared on MTV Unplugged on the eve of the release of their second album, 1996′s Fairweather Johnson. Though sales began promisingly, the album quickly ran out of steam, having sold four million copies in the U.S. Hootie & the Blowfish has since released four more studio albums, Musical Chairs; Scattered, Smothered and Covered; Hootie & the Blowfish; and Looking for Lucky.
The band’s name comes from two of frontman Darius Rucker’s college choir friends, neither of whom was ever a band member. One, with a round face and glasses, was nicknamed Hootie because of his perceived owl-like appearance. The Blowfish also got his nickname from his facial appearance, in his case chubby cheeks.
Hootie & the Blowfish’s members are avid golfers, and have sponsored the Monday After the Masters charity golf tournament since 1995.
Long time touring friends with Hootie and the Blowfish, the Edwin McCain band signed with same label, Atlantic Records. In 1994, he recorded his first major-label album, Honor Among Thieves under the Lava Records imprint (matchbox twenty, Kid Rock and Jewel). The record was then released in 1995. His second album, Misguided Roses, spawned I’ll Be, a major hit single in 1998. This song is also featured on the charitable album, Live in the X Lounge, along with a live version of “Solitude”. Two more albums (Messenger and Far from Over) followed, but at the end of 2001, he split from Lava. In 2003 he released a collection of acoustic versions of songs both old and new called The Austin Sessions via ATC Records, a Nashville-based independent record label (at which McCain was the first artist signed following its creation in 2001). Mid-2004 saw the arrival of his first studio album in three years, entitled Scream & Whisper, which was released on another indie label, DRT Entertainment.
He has released two DVDs to date. The first was through ATC records in late 2002, called Mile Marker: Songs and Stories from the Acoustic Highway, and it consisted of interviews, live performances, and other material. The other was in late 2004, Tinsel & Tap Shoes. It was his first live concert DVD, recorded at The House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Co-written & performed with singer/songwriter Maia Sharp, McCain released a single, “Hold Out a Hand.” This song, available for a 99 cent download on iTunes.com, gives all profits to the relief of the hurricane victims of 2005.
Edwin McCain Band’s newest CD, titled, “Lost in America,” was released on April 11, 2006, under the Vanguard Records label. This album (#9) is said to be a true “rock ‘n roll” collection. There are 2 single releases from this CD: #1 – “Gramercy Park Hotel.” #2 – “Truly Believe.”
The band is currently on an extensive U.S. tour, promoting the “Lost in America” album.

Brutal Truth was a New York City based deathgrind band that was formed in 1990 by ex-Anthrax and Nuclear Assault bassist Dan Lilker. The group disbanded in 1999. Brutal Truth was one of the pioneers of deathgrind who enjoyed world wide success, particularly in Japan and Australia.
Originally signed to Earache Records, on which they released two albums, 1992′s Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses, and 1994′s Need to Control, as well as an EP entitled Perpetual Conversion, and a 7″ single for the song “Godplayer”. During this time, music videos were made for the songs “Ill Neglect”, “Collatoral Damage”, and “Godplayer”. Brutal Truth found frustration with Earache Records, as did many 1990s Relapse Records bands, and switched to Relapse Records, known for its roster of grindcore acts, with whom they stayed until the band’s demise.
On Relapse they released the mini album Kill Trend Suicide, a full length release entitled Sounds of the Animal Kingdom, and a double CD live album called Goodbye Cruel World. The band has also released many split 7″ singles on smaller labels, with most of these being out of print and difficult to find.
In 2001, the Guinness Book of Records awarded Brutal Truth the record for “Shortest Music Video” for their video “Collateral Damage,” which weighs in at 2.18 seconds long and consists of 48 still images in rapid succession followed by a clip of an explosion.
Drummer Rich Hoak now provides vocals and drums for a new project titled Total Fucking Destruction. Kevin Sharp released an album with Venomous Concept in 2004, a hardcore punk band featuring members from The Melvins and Napalm Death. He was also a member of Australian grind band Damaged for a little over a year from 1999. Dan Lilker now plays for a host of bands and is currently bassist for the re-united Nuclear Assault.

- Jim Boyd is an American actor, born in Philadelphia.Boyd spent four years in the Air Force and studied at the American Academy for Dramatic Arts.
He did voice work (along with Wayland Flowers and Cleavon Little) for puppets on The Surprise Show, a children’s program that aired locally in the New York City area in the late 1960s. The puppets used on the show, called Aniforms, had been developed by puppeteer Morey Bunin.
In 1971, the Children’s Television Workshop (now Sesame Workshop) contacted Boyd because they wanted to use Aniforms in a television show that became known as The Electric Company. During the first season, Boyd’s voice was used extensively, especially for the character J. Arthur Crank (who was just an angry voice at the time). Boyd was unseen until season two, when he became a regular cast member, appearing on-camera until the show stopped production in 1977.
Boyd is often confused with Mississippi-born Jimmy Boyd, singer of “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” who was also an actor. The Internet Movie Database mistakenly lists the two men as the same person, combining their television and film credits, but a correction order has been submitted there.
