  2. Grass Roots does Bon Jovi

    Back in early 1982, the late lead singer Rob Grill (who died in 2011) & The Grass Roots (without the original members) put out their final album in 1982 called "Powers Of The Night". From that album came "She Don't Know Me" (later done by Bon Jovi from their self - titled 1984 album). By the way, that album on MCA & the remaining albums for Dunhill/ABC (except "Leaving It All Behind" from late 1969 & available on itunes) & Haven/Capitol were lost in the Universal Studios fire back in June of 2008 as well as Rob Grill's 1979 solo "Uprooted" on Mercury also NOT on itunes. Here is The Grass Roots version on scratched vinyl:
  3. Guitarist Vincent Bell dies at 84

    Watery guitarist Vincent ("Vinnie") Bell has died at 84 years old on October 3. He played the "water" guitar on Ferrante & Teicher's "Midnight Cowboy" (# 10 on Hot 100 in January 17, 1970 & # 2 on Adult Contemporary). Vinnie also played with the piano duo on the remake of Bob Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay" (# 99 for 1 week on April 4, 1970 & # 16 AC Chart) both songs on United Artists. His only solo song was "Airport Love Theme" (# 31 Hot 100 & # 2 AC Charts in May of 1970) on Decca. Decca also released the 45 single "Nikki" also in 1970 (TV theme from ABC's Tuesday & Wednesday "Movie Of The Week" (1969 - 1975)) (written by Burt Bacharach & the late Hal David) but did not chart. Done later on Burt Bacharach self - titled 1971 A&M album.
