Birth: Feb. 7, 1949
Death: Jul. 23, 1990

Folk singer who performed at Woodstock in 1969 and had a hit with the song "We're All Playing In The Same Band." He was briefly a member of baroque-pop group the Left Banke, co-writing and singing lead on the "Ivy Ivy"/"And Suddenly" single. He also played Woof in the original Broadway production of "Hair (musical)" and "Flatbush" of Kaptain Kool and the Kongs on The Krofft Supershow in 1976. He died in Troy, NY after a long battle with respiratory illness. His last performance was in Troy on June 11, 1990.

**Note, a person of less fame who performed at the same venue and never had a record contract made it as famous but for whatever reason, this entry keeps being rejected as famous***
