    Default Rich Teens in 60's/70's rock BANDS

    DINO,DESI & BILLY

    I think the story goes something like this: Sinatra's Reprise label took them on but when they arrived to record there were session musicians there - they were told on the spot that they would only be doing the vocals.

    Listen to their cover of Like A Rolling Stone and know that "you don't know what's happening here, do you, mr Jones".

    Chevy Chase came from a well off family (father was a well known editor and his mother was a concert pianist). His family is steeped in "old money", with Vanderbilt connections.

    He attended private schools when he was young, and later Bard College.

    While in College, he played in a band with future founders of Steely Dan, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen. He later had a band called Chamaeleon Church, which recorded one album in 1969 with MGM.

    And if there were a god, I think it very unlikely that he would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence - Russell

    I presume the Moby Grape member was Peter Lewis - his mother was actress Loretta Young.

    David Crosby's lineage has a blue-blooded background, which includes two prominent families of Dutch origin. A distant relative was author Herman Melville.

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).
