    Christopher Cross won Best New Artist at the Grammys in 1980, as well as record, song, album of the year. And then the Oscar for Best Song for "Arthur."
    Then he "Rode Like the Wind" out of town & never achieved that much success since.

    Another example of talent being in the right place at the right time, I guess, and then enjoying success in the spotlight.

    For most, no success at all by industry standards...and for those who do get lucky, success is fleeting for all but a very few......

    Walter Slezak played "The Clock King" on the TV series "Batman," one of my favorites for its campiness.

  16. #6366
    Yes...The Clock King, whose eyebrows resembled the hands of a clock which had stopped at ten minutes to two o'clock....

  17. #6367
    Forgot this: Walter Slezak's daughter Erika played on the soap opera "One Life To Live." I can't remember if her father made an appearance on this show.

  18. #6368
    Yes Moe, he did, in 1976...as Laszlo Braedeker, godfather of Vicki Lord..played by real life daughter, Erika....

    Quote for the Day:

    "I have never stopped performing live.

    I've been blessed with the talent to sing and play the piano, so I can fit into a lot of different configurations and venues.

    I play public and private performances, and it has served me well.

    And I've been fortunate to work in Europe and Asia, as well as the US.

    So, for those who have not attended my shows, it doesn't mean I'm not performing."

    Sounds like Ms Adams had an interesting career. She opened for Tears For Fears & stayed onstage to provide piano & vocals.

  23. #6373
    And.......with all the songs that they wrote Ashford & Simpson had only a few go to
    Number 1 [and none on regular chart, on R&B/Dance]. And GREAT SONGS!!

    Not for themselves, maybe their songs are more complex than many...... but they were writers of # 1 hit on Billboard and Cashbox, for Ain't No Mountain High Enough', by Diana Ross.....which has become a classic recording..so that must be their main claim to fame....

  26. #6376
    You're right; I was only thinking about the ones they sang.

    But, still a great writing team!

  28. #6378
    I found it interesting that Tyrone Davis's "Can I Change My Mind" was the B side to
    "A Woman Needs To Be Loved'...this was supposed to be the hit but everyone flipped the record.
    He was on a PBS Special & he was great!

    Randy Travis had a demon called alcohol. Once found in the middle of a road drunk & naked. Also suffered a stroke & with intensive therapy could finally walk & talk. I think he finally gave up singing now. How sad. Husband was switching channels on the TV recently & came across Travis as a guest star on "Matlock."
