Mr Big is also the name of a 70s UK band, see Mr Big (UK Band). They were joined for a time by younger brothers Donny Osmond, (born December 9, 1957) and subsequently "Little" Jimmy Osmond, (born April 16, 1963). Official Richie Kotzen site (http://www.richiekotzen.com/). They were so successful that a new word, "Osmania" was coined to describe the phenomenon. Official Eric Martin site (http://www.ericmartin.com/). One of their first major hits, "Crazy Horses", could be described as rock, but they followed it with gentler, more sentimental songs such as "Let Me In" and "Love Me For a Reason." This music, combined with the brothers' good looks and clean image, greatly appealed to the teenybopper market. Official Billy Sheehan site (http://www.billysheehan.com/). The Osmonds career started with a big break at Disneyland, followed quickly by regular appearances on "The Andy Williams Show" in the early sixties, but their most successful period was the seventies, when they achieved a string of chart hits.
