    I always thought The Turtles were an underrated band, but I did not know an awful lot about them personally and I never made the connection that Captain Cloud from Get Crazy, was in fact Howard Kaylan aka Eddie And though there is a long story behind the Flo and Eddie moniker, I did not realize it came from their stint as Frank Zappa s back up singers And yes, they were on stage at Montreux when some stupid with a flare gun, burned the place to the ground After barely escaping with thei I always thought The Turtles were an underrated band, but I did not know an awful lot about them personally and I never made the connection that Captain Cloud from Get Crazy, was in fact Howard Kaylan aka Eddie And though there is a long story behind the Flo and Eddie moniker, I did not realize it came from their stint as Frank Zappa s back up singers And yes, they were on stage at Montreux when some stupid with a flare gun, burned the place to the ground After barely escaping with their lives, they went back the next day and salvaged the cowbell used in their act.This is for people who will read any book about the 60s and 70s because all the usual suspects are here Because Kaylan kept a diary of those ye...

    It s a rock autobiography a light read with lots of name dropping and rollicking accounts of the life If you re into Frank Zappa, The Turtles, 60 s pop and 70 s excess, it s another Spinal Tap tinted window on that world on that level it s well worth th...

    Howard Kaylan may not be a household name in rock pop but everyone knows the Turtles and hits like Happy Together and You Showed Me Due to typical music biz legal shenanigans, he and his Turtles partner Mark V0lman had to adopt new names and so became Flo Eddie Now you ve probably heard of them.Howard s tales of sex, drugs and rock n roll are pretty standard but the number of acts he has worked with over the years is pretty incredible Though the book sometimes replaces story t Howard Kaylan may not be a household name in rock pop but everyone knows the Turtles and hits like Happy Together and You Showed Me Due to typical music biz legal shenanigans, he and his Turtles partner Mark V0lman had to adopt new names and so became Flo Eddie Now you ve probably heard of them.Howard s tales of sex, drugs and rock n roll are pretty standard but the number of acts he has worked with over the years is pretty incredible Though the book sometimes replaces story telling with name dropping, it never becomes tired due to the pace Sometimes I wished he would slow down and linger awhile on some aspect of his career However, it is a rollicking good time overall and we get to see Kaylan s growth as an artist and business person There are great stories for fans of Frank Zappa, Marc Bolan, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Jim...
