    (July 12, 1948- )
    Born in New York City, New York
    Recorded the single 'Magnet and Steel' (1978)
    He started in a surf band called the Malibooz.
    He auditioned unsuccessfully to replace Bernie Leadon in the Eagles.
    He was a one-hit wonder.
    'Magnet and Steel' became a smash in no small part because it prominently featured Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham when Fleetwood Mac were at the height of their success.
    He was tagged as a Fleetwood Mac clone. (Having Buckingham appear on his first four albums probably did not help counter the impression.)
    His song 'Hearts on Fire' was covered by Gram Parsons and ex-Eagle Randy Meisner and his song 'Hot Summer Nights' was a Top 40 hit for the band Night.
    He got a writer's credit for Eminem's 'We Made You' because Dr. Dre sampled the bass line from 'Hot Summer Nights' for the song.
    He was a four-time champion on the game show 'Catch Phrase' (1985).
    He is also a sculptor and created the woodcut print that became the cover for Lindsey Buckingham's album 'Out of the Cradle' (1992).
    He became a substitute teacher. ('It’s a good job for a musician because you can go away and come back and still have work.')
