Musician. A bassist, he was a member of the music group John Fred and His Playboys. Led by John Fred Gourrier, they are best known for their Beatles parody "Judy In Disguise (With Glasses)", which topped the US pop charts for two weeks in 1968. Raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Cowart began his career as a teenager, originally playing with Lenny Capello and the Dots. During the 1970s he established himself a much sought-after studio musician, recording with the Bee Gees and also contributing instrumentally to Brook Benton's "Rainy Night in Georgia" (1969), Frankie Valli's "Grease" (1978), Andy Gibbs' album "Shadow Dancing" (1978), and the Barbra Streisand and Barry Gibb duet "Guilty" (1980). In later years, Cowart owned and operated a recording studio.
