The Pyramids !

The Pyramids ‘ bassist Steve Leonard decided to analyzed the Chantay's "Pipeline" and came up with clever variations of that opening reverb riff.
In early 1964, The Pyramids made the Top 20, helped by the promotion of John Hodge, the group's manager.
The Long Beach, California group achieved some notoriety after Hodge convinced them to shave their heads just as the British Invasion and became "America's answer to the Beatles." During their concerts they'd wear Beatle wigs which they would throw to the audience halfway through the show revealing their bald heads. Hired girls would then storm the stage. Other gimmicks were arriving at a job on elephants or in a helicopter. The gimmicks worked and they were soon appearing on Bandstand and Hullabaloo and in the beach movie Bikini Beach.

Surf up, and have a gooooood weekend !

The Pyramids were a step up from professional wrestling's George Ringo, the wrestling Beatle.

Well, he`s gone and done it. "Fire of Love" is no more! Personally I blame Frank for starting all this blog deleting behaviour.
Anyway, keep spreading the word!
