Quick peek at cousin Kirby on Shindig

My cousin Kirby Johnson (from Byron, IL) was a member of the Wellingtons, a boy band which became a back up group on Shindig a 60s TV show that featured live music by up and coming musicians (like Aretha Franklin and Roy Clark, Righteous Brothers, Marianne Faithful).  This is a link to a 1991 retrospective, and Kirby appears around minute 10 and 18.

I’ve wrote a blog about the group, originally called The Lincolns because they met as fraternity brothers at the University of Illinois. Collecting My Thoughts  Kirby Johnson died in 1999.
