A Mouseketeer on the initial Mickey Mouse Golf club Television show, Dick Dodd continued to greatly help pioneer the Western Coast rock and roll of the first ’60s. After playing drums and performing using the Casuals, Eddie & the Showmen, as well as the Bel-Airs, Dodd approved an invitation to become listed on the L.A.-centered group the Standells, replacing Gary Leeds, who transformed his name to Gary Walker and discovered fame using the Walker Brothers. Furthermore to playing around the Standells’ 1966 strike tribute to Boston’s Charles River, “Dirty Drinking water,” he made an appearance using the group in the 1967 film Riot on Sunset Remove. Dealing with the Standells’ supervisor, maker, and lyricist of “Dirty Drinking water,” Ed Cobb, Dodd documented a solo recording, First Development, in 1968. Although he released two singles — “Fanny” b/w “YOU SHOULDN’T BE Ashamed to Contact My Name” and “Guilty” b/w “Requiem” — neither offered the hoped-for discovery and Dodd faded from your spotlight. Three years later on, in November 1999, Dodd reunited with previous Standells keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist Larry Tamblyn and guitarist Tony Valentino to execute for the Cavestomp! series on the Westbeth Movie theater in NY. An album documented during their functionality, Ban This! Live from Cavestomp!, premiered in 2000.
