OK, back to the 70's: This Canton, OH native became the vocalist for Steve Miller's first band, The Marksmen, in '59. He rejoined the Steve Miller Band in the late 60's on their 1st 2 albums. His smash album (#2 U.S.) came in '76, accompanied by session musicians later to become Toto. A song from the album was covered by Frankie Valli and by Rita Coolidge (Cert. Gold #1 Cashbox). Artist? Album? Song?
Yesterday's answer: "Centerfield" by John Fogerty.
