Bo, Don't Be A Heywood

Things I learned about Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods on Sunday, thanks to Casey Kasem circa 1974.

1)"Billy, Don't Be A Hero" was not their only chart entry. In fact, "Who Do You Think You Are" made it as high as #15 on the Hot 100. Upon further reading, they even charted a THIRD song titled "The Heartbreak Kid."

2)One of the band members married the president of the Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods Fan Club, who just so happened to be Donaldson's sister Vicki. Furthermore, an invitation was printed in the Fan Club newsletter for all the members, and something like 200 showed up at the wedding.

3)Most amazing of all, there really was a Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods Fan Club.
