He had the most wins and most losses in team history as coach of the Detroit Lions. I think that's a little more noteworthy than being a psychic or whatever.

Fontana left the band in '65 but the band carried on as "The Mindbenders" and appeared in To Sir With Love...

This music was on the radio when I was very little.  I've been going back and giving bands from that era a serious listen.  It's like R&R is fresh and dynamic and blooming again.

It's helped with the pandemic blues too.  I wonder if we'll get some great art out of this time?  I'm thinking yes.

I've been listening to Casey Kasem reruns on I Heart Radio.  You get a big mix of different songs instead of the same twenty they play on a "classic Rock" station.

//If I hear "Dream on" or "FreeBird" one more time, it'll be too soon.

I absolutely love this, one of the prettiest songs of the 60's.  I can do without the Phil Collins remake.

Wayne Fontana Charged With Arson
GLOSSOP (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) - Its been a rough couple of weeks for Wayne Fontana, front man for sixties sensation The Mindbenders.
Fontana, who's real name is Glynn Ellis was arrested and charged with arson and intent to endanger life at hs home in Glossop, Derbyshire after police were told that Ellis had allegedly poured gasoline or lighter fluid over a car with another man inside, the Guardian reported. If convicted, Ellis could face up to 14 years in prison.
Ellis then made headlines again after he reportedly had an onstage outburst at a Swinging Sixties event at Warner's in Hungerford, Berks. He launched into a tirade in front of 500 dismayed fans. Ellis had been telling fans that he felt like "Jews had been treated by the Nazis" during his arrest. When a fan told him to "stop moaning and start singing" Ellis reportedly launched into a string of invective at the fan, asking, perhaps rhetorically "F***ing hell, have you got a f***ing appointment or something?" starting an angry rant that lasted for five minutes. The rest of the mindbenders tried to strike up a tune, but Ellis apparently was having none of it.

His troubles are well known, as are those of so many others in the entertainment industry.
