The Buoys were among several one-hit wonders from the first 1970s. Billy Kelly (business lead vocals), Fran Bozena (keyboards), Gerry Hludzik (bass), Chris Hanlon (acoustic guitar), and Carl Siracuse (drums), from Wilkes-Barre, PA., produced a high 20 strike with “Timothy,” compiled by Rupert Holmes, who also performed a number of the keyboards on the recording for the Scepter label. (Holmes later on had his personal graph success like a vocalist with “Get away (The Pina Colada Music)” and “Him,” before getting into a profession on Broadway using the Secret of Edwin Drood in the past due 1980s.) The Buoys vanished through the charts as well as the airwaves after two extra, a lot more modest graph entries, “Bloodknot” and “QUIT Your Weapons,” but later on shifted to Polydor before dissolving within the mid-1970s. Kelly and Hludzik consequently returned ten years after “Timothy” within the group Dakota.
