Biography

There are two bands called ‘The Rascals’.

1) The Rascals (initially known as The Young Rascals) were an American and group of the , perhaps best known for the evergreen pop hits “Good Lovin’” and “Groovin’.”

2) The Rascals were a three-piece band made of Miles Kane (guitar/vocals), Joe Edwards (bass), and Greg Mighall (drums). Hailing from the Wirral, on Merseyside, these three 21 year olds spent years learning their craft as part of The Little Flames, touring with bands like The Coral, The Zutons, and, most notably, the Arctic Monkeys. It was during this time supporting the Arctic Monkeys, inspired by their maverick, DIY spirit and refusal to comprise, the three youngest Flames decided it was time to trust their hearts and their instincts and go it alone.

In September 2006, they began jamming and writing new material as a three piece, and there was born The Rascals. Impressed by the raw energy and virtuosity of Miles’ playing, Alex Turner approached him and suggested that he play lead guitar on a new Arctic Monkeys’ tune called “505”. The Rascals were immediately signed to Deltasonic Records and played their first gig supporting Turney’s band at Cardiff International Arena in June 2007.

August 2009, frontman Miles Kane confirmed that he left the band to pursue a solo career. The band was discontinued. Although receiving some commercial success by himself, fans of the group have kept the flame burning for reunions.

    "one of the most popular bands of the 60s?" OH YES THEY WERE! The (Young) Rascals are the teachers for Vanila Fudge, and Vanilla Fudge are the teachers for Deep Purple, and Deep Purple are the teachers for,among others, these new Rascals :))

    one of the most popular bands of the 60s? I don't think they were among the most popular ones from that decade. Anyway, please stop feeling superior because the band you prefer "was there first". That's the argument of a stupid child. (2) I like both, btw.

    It's sad that some douchebag left so many spammy comments on this page. It's also sad that cluless spamming douchebags couldn't even figure out that their unoriginal choice for a band name was already taken by one of the most popular bands of the 1960s.
