Merrell Fankhauser an American singer, songwriter and guitarist who was most active in the 1960s and 1970s with bands including the Impacts, Exiles, Fapardokly, Merrell Fankhauser & H.M.S. Bounty, Fankhauser Cassidy Band, and MU.
After Fapardokly parted ways, Fankhauser and bandmate Bill Dodd (guitar) formed another more overtly psychedelic band in 1967. Along with Jack Jordan (bass) and Larry Meyers (drums), they named it H.M.S. Bounty. They won a recording deal with Uni Records, and their self-titled album was released in 1968, followed by a single Tampa Run. However, success was again thwarted, by personal and record company problems, and the band split up.
Fankhauser reunited with Jeff Cotton in 1970, and they formed the group MU
