Biography

The Furys turned into the Wilde Knights around 1965 and they (Rich and Rick) wrote and recorded the original “Just Like Me”, that Paul Revere and the Raiders had a huge hit with. Pat Benetar did a cover of “Just Like Me” as well. In that same recording session in Los Angeles in 1965, they recorded “Beaver Patrol” which was a little before it’s time when it comes to being politically incorrect. “Beaver Patrol” was covered by a British group called “Pop Will Eat Itself”. The Furys / Wilde Knights played many venues on the West coast including many night clubs in Los Angeles and San Francisco area. In 1965 we opened for the Rolling Stones and the Byrds in San Jose, CA., and appeared with several other notables including The Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, Sonny and Cher, Bobby Bare (All American Boy), and Paul Revere and the Raiders. A good history was written and appeared on an album of much of their music released on Voxx in 1984 called “The Wilde Knights”… Diamonds in The Rough… A History of Garage Band Music.
