Great funfact in Keith Richards autobiography--the private jet they used on the '75 tour? Guess who they leased it from? Mr. Love Beads. See http://www.bobbysherman.com/starship.htm.

I sort of wish I could think like this.

My ex-wife had a 45 of Bobby Sherman's "Easy Come Easy Go" which she cut out of the back of a cereal box. But she didn't have the love beads.

I have one of those cereal box singles, I think it's called Bubblegum and Braces.

After he left the business we call show, he became a training officer with the LAPD and later the San Bernadino County Sheriff's Department, training academy student in CPR and First Aid techniques. Probably a more satisfying living than selling love beads.

@ Brent...yeah, he actually was one of the people that got the whole paramedic thing rolling.

I gotta tell ya though, I was 11 in 1970 and there's pics of me wearing a fringed leather vest, a turtleneck, a pendant and candy love beads...with my pretty short hair combed partly OVER my ears. Hey, if the chicks liked Bobby, I would look like Bobby!
