Musician
    (January 10, 1939-August 18, 2012)
    Born in Jacksonville, Florida
    Birth name is Philip Blondheim
    Member of New York's The Journeymen with John Phillips and Dick Weissman (1961-64)
    Recorded as a solo artist 'San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)'
    He is a one hit wonder.
    Phillips invited him to be a member of the Mamas and Papas, but he wanted a solo career and turned him down.
    He retired in the early '70s, but changed his mind and between 1986-98, sang with a new version of the Mamas and Papas.
    He claims he doesn't like the sound of his own voice (so naturally he became a singer).
    'San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)' made it to #4 on Billboard's Singles chart in the U.S. and reached #1 in the U.K and several contries in Europe, selling over 5 million copies.
    The song has been credited with luring thousands of teens to San Francisco and was the unofficial 1967 'Summer of Love' hippie movement song of the time.
    The youth of Czechoslovakia used the song as their freedom anthem against Soviet rule during the 1968 Prague Spring uprising.
    Led Zeppelin has covered the song and it can be heard in their 1976 concert film 'The Song Remains the Same.'
    He helped write the 1988 Beach Boys hit 'Kokomo.'
    He teamed with Denny Doherty and Michelle Phillips to sing at a 2001 tribute concert honoring his late friend John.
    He dedicated his live American performances of 'San Francisco' to Vietnam vets and in 2002 sang at the 20th anniversary of the unveiling of the of the Vietnam Memorial Wall.
