The Trashmen

The Trashmen were a rock and roll band formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1962. The group's lineup was Tony Andreason on lead guitar, Dan Winslow on guitar and singing, Steve Wahrer on drums and singing, and Bob Reed on bass. The group played surf rock with many elements from garage rock.

The Trashmen's only notable hit was 1964's "Surfin' Bird". The single's album, Surfin' Bird, wasn't successful. The song, however, has been used in many movies and is generally known to be an earworm.

The group disbanded in 1967. They reunited in the 1980s and played until the death of Steve Wahrer in 1989.

The Trashmen were a rock and roll band formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1962. Through music-business intrigue, Brenston, Turner's saxophone player, ended up with artist and co-author credit on Turner's tune.

The record was released under the name of Jackie Brenston and his Delta Cats, but was actually performed by Ike Turner and His Kings of Rhythm. It was a sharp contrast from the relatively more jazzy and sophisticated jump blues or swing combo music that preceded it. Turner's 1949 recording of "Rocket 88" is considered one of the earliest examples of rock and roll with a driving back beat and topped with electric guitar and wailing saxophone. His musical career began with his childhood piano teacher, Pinetop Perkins, who taught him the boogie-woogie that he later transformed into early rock and roll.

Turner was born in Clarksdale, Mississippi. He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Ike Turner (born Izear Luster Turner Jr.) (born November 5, 1931) is an American musician (piano, guitar), bandleader, talent scout and record producer.
