Flo turns 60

September 20, 2007

Many of us remember The Turtles (“Happy Together”) whose front men were two zany California dudes named Mark Vollman and Howard Kaylan. This effervescent duo eventually joined Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention, and then I kinda lost track of what they were doing. Kill Ugly Radio reblogged my Boulez exorcism today and I found this update about our dynamic duo:

Howard Kaylan (Eddie) performs a video birthday salute for his long time friend and musical co-conspirator, Mark Volman (The Fluorescent Leech), both formerly of the Turtles, to be viewed at his 60th birthday party in Nashville, TN on May 5, 2007. Those of us old enough to remember much of what Kaylan recalls are no doubt running short on Grecian Formula.
