I helped the Beach Boys get started, was the lead singer of Larry Tremaine & His Renegades that became The Sun Rays (I live for the Sun [1963]). Gave Herb Alpert his first jobs playing the trumpet on stage; worked with Roger Christian writing Beach Boys' songs; worked with Humble Harvey Miller, Wolfman Jack, Dick 'Huggy Boy' Hugg, Wink Martindale and many of the other greats in L.A. Radio."
