Jan and Dean

(Redirected from Jan & Dean)

Jan Berry (April 3, 1941, Los Angeles -- March 26, 2004) and Dean Torrence (born March 10, 1940, Los Angeles) were a rock and roll duo briefly popular in the early 1960s as part of the "surf music" craze inspired by The Beach Boys.

They began singing together after football practice at University High School in Los Angeles. Primitive recording sessions followed soon after, in a makeshift studio in Jan's garage. They first performed on stage as The Barons at a high school dance. Their first commercial success was Jennie Lee (1958), an ode to a local burlesque performer which they recorded along with pal Arnie Ginsberg. After Dean returned from an army stint and Arnie went off to other pursuits (by 1962, he was a hugely successful rock and roll deejay in Boston), the two began to make music again as Jan and Dean.

With the help of friend Herb Alpert and producer Lou Adler, they scored a modest hit with Baby Talk (1959), and then entered a long dry spell. Playing local venues, they met and performed with the Beach Boys, and discovered the appeal of the latter's "surf sound".With considerable help from Brian Wilson, they eventually scored a number one national hit with "Surf City" (1963). Subsequent hits included "Little Old Lady From Pasadena" (1964) and the eerily portentous "Dead Man's Curve" (1964).

Early in 1966 Jan was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident, resulting in severe head injuries. As a result, the group did not perform again until 1973, and made an official comeback in 1978 on tour with the Beach Boys. The group continued to tour until Berry's death in March, 2004, with 1960s nostalgia providing them with a ready audience.

. Jan Berry (April 3, 1941, Los Angeles -- March 26, 2004) and Dean Torrence (born March 10, 1940, Los Angeles) were a rock and roll duo briefly popular in the early 1960s as part of the "surf music" craze inspired by The Beach Boys. This is the band's first line up change.

Brian "Head" Welch, citing religious/moral objections to the band's music, left KoЯn on February 22, 2005. He has turned highly religious, even being baptized in the Jordan River. The band continues to progress and experiment with new sounds, including never-before-heard in KoЯn songs, guitar solos. The band completed their record deal with Sony Records and now plans to release their future albums themselves, setting a new precedent for big name artists. The other is a cover of the three parts of Pink Floyd's Another Brick in the Wall. The first single is a cover of Cameo's 1980s hit, Word Up.

As of 2004, the group have remained successful: KoЯn recently released a greatest hits album, with two cover versions as singles. This band is also notable for its collaborations with some hip hop artists, like Ice Cube and Nas. The group's music is a blend of pounding, tribal drums and loud, distorted seven-string guitars, and has gained the band popularity throughout the years. Davis' distinctive singing—often a series of grunts, whines and bizarre scats—and his lyrics, are inspired in part by his alleged child abuse by an unnamed party.

KoЯn are often cited as inspiring the wave of nu metal bands that appeared in the late 1990s and early 2000s; they are credited for giving significant boosts to Limp Bizkit and Deftones. When Davis joined the band in 1993, they changed their name to KoЯn, releasing their debut album KoЯn through Epic/Immortal Records in October 1994. They later changed their name to Creep. They originally formed as LAPD (which stood for Love And Peace Dude), which consisted of all five members apart from singer Jonathan Davis.

KoЯn is a nu metal band from Bakersfield, California, United States. The songs were performed by various other bands on the soundtrack album. The Queen of the Damned - Music and lyrics written and performed (in the movie) by Jonathan Davis. Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life - Did My Time.
