The Turtles are in town with friends Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels (Devil With A Blue Dress, Chuck Negron of Three Dog Night (Joy To the World_, Gary Lewis and the Playboys (This Diamond Ring) and Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad (We’re An American Band). They have 30 top 10 hits among them, so there’ll be no shortage of hits you know and love.
But things haven’t always been for The Turtles Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan, who not only had to sue for the right to use the name ‘The Turtles’, but couldn’t use their own names as well.
That’s one of the reasons Mark continues to teach a course on the music business when he’s not out on tour.
For anyone interested in the business aspect of the music business, this interview will be a revelation. And he has some great information about some of The Turtles hits ‘Happy Together’, ‘Eleanor’, ‘She’d Rather Be With Me’, and ‘You Showed Me’.
See you tonight at the Celebrity Theatre for the o’clock show.
