Biography

Logan Whitehurst (November 15, 1977 – December 3, 2006), was the drummer for the Northern California band Little Tin Frog from 1995 until 2000. He also played keyboards on the Headboard CD “The End Is Near,” and performed live with the group on numerous occasions from 1996 to 1997. In 2000, he continued on as a founding member of The Velvet Teen, for which he is best known.

In addition to drumming for The Velvet Teen, he has released a handful of self-recorded solo albums as Logan Whitehurst & The Junior Science Club. His quirky brand of music has garnered a cult following, receiving frequent airplay on the Dr. Demento radio program. He has also designed numerous album covers for bands such as his sister’s band Tsunami Bomb and Dynamite Boy, in addition to The Velvet Teen and Fearless Records.

Through much of 2004 he had been battling a mysterious illness. In May, 2005 it was discovered that the ailments he was suffering were due to a cancerous brain tumor. Deciding to focus on his recovery, he left The Velvet Teen.[1] He spent the better part of a year and a half going through numerous treatments for the recurring brain cancer. On December 3, 2006, Logan Whitehurst succumbed to a long battle with the illness and died at his home in Los Banos, surrounded by his family.

    I hadn't listened to any Logan Whitehurst in several years until today. Kind of sad to hear about someone you've enjoyed dying by way of scrobbling.

    Logan Whitehurst & the Junior Science Club is the name on the CDs and is thus correct. Please vote for it!

    Damn, I just learned about him now, more than seven months after his death, and I must say we lost a great man. If ever there was a time for a time machine...
