Biography

There are two bands called ‘The Rascals’.

1) The Rascals (initially known as The Young Rascals) were an American soul and rock group of the 1960s. Eddie Brigati (vocals), Felix Cavaliere (keyboard, vocals), Gene Cornish (guitar) and Dino Danelli (drums) started the band in Brigati and Danelli’s native state New Jersey. Their first public performance took place at the Choo Choo Club in Garfield on Saturday, February 27th, 1965. Three-quarters of the group - Brigati, Cavaliere and Cornish - had previously been members of Joey Dee and the Starliters. Eddie’s brother, David Brigati, an original Starliter, helped arrange the vocal harmonies and sang backgrounds on many of the group’s recordings (informally earning the designation as the Fifth Rascal). When Atlantic Records signed them, they discovered that another group (Borrah Minevitch’s and Johnny Puleo’s Harmonica Rascals) objected to the release of records under the name Rascals. To avoid conflict, manager Sid Bernstein decided to rename the group the Young Rascals.

The Young Rascals had a minor hit with “I Ain’t Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore” (1965), followed by the #1 single “Good Lovin’” (1966, originally by The Olympics). Then the band’s songwriting team of Brigati and Cavaliere began providing most of their songs, and the hits kept coming for the next two years, including “I’ve Been Lonely Too Long”, “You Better Run”, “Groovin’” (#1, 1967)

    How in the hell are the British Rascals getting more listens and comments than the 60s legends?

    "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.
