Celebrated vocalist Chuck Negron had a successful history in the ’60s and ’70s with his former band Three Dog Night, producing 21 hit singles including “Mama Told Me (Not to Come)” and “Black and White.”

Known for their harmonic vocals and feel-good songs, Flo & Eddie of the Turtles topped the late-’60s with the popular “Happy Together” and “Ellenore,” winning over a broad fan base throughout their career with their quirky style and pop-rock sound.

The blue-eyed soul group of the ’60s, Felix Cavaliere’s Rascals overtook the music scene with their original pop, psychedelic, and jazz influenced hits “Good Lovin’,” “Groovin’,” and “A Girl Like You.”

A pop-rock music icon, British band Badfinger saw great success in both the U.K. and in the United States with hits such as “No Matter What,” “Day After Day,” and “Come and Get It.”
