Childe Harold was born in the Flame Cafe in Ozone Park, NY in the spring of 1967. The band was put together by Bruce Herring (lead singer/front man) who hand-picked the guys from several other bands. The other members were Richie Bora (Hammond B3 and vocals) Dave Cancell (drums) and Tony Petrigliano (guitar and vocals). There was also a bassist for a short time, but he left the group and Richie took up the slack on the B3 bass pedals.
The band then retreated to the basement of Richie’s mother’s candy store on Woodhaven Boulevard for several months to develop its act. Their style could best be described as “Performance Rock” and featured grand arrangements of popular songs which included lights, a fog machine and magnesium flares.
Childe Harold only ever released one record, the 1968 single “Brink Of Death” / “Anne With Love (PS)” , which was arranged by Walter Carlos.
