11. Great singer, great songwriter, great guitarist.

 

One of those people who sold millions of records, and was extremely talented, but didn't get respect.


Or as Liberace famously said after being criticized, "I cried all the way to the bank."



He got his big break with the Chad Mitchell Trio after Mitchell left. The guitar player on the left with the beard and glasses is Paul Prestopino. He also played backup for PP&M. I talked to him after a PP&M concert and he is very cool.
