Joseph Richard Dodd - born 25th October, 1943; or 27th October, 1943; or maybe 27th October, 1945 (Hermosa Beach, Caliofornia) - an original "Mouseketeer" along with Annette Funicello. In 1964 he replaced Gary Leeds (later of the Walker Brothers) as the singing drummer in The Standells. In 1967 they performed the title song in the A.I.P. film "Riot on Sunset Strip" (starts 1:17)
Song written by two of the group, but most of their best known songs were written by their producer Ed Cobb including 'Dirty Water' (Boston was not their home) and
'Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White'
Trivial notes - The Standells supposedly turned down Ed Cobb's 'Tainted Love'. Lowell George was a Standell for a short time in 1968 prior to joining the Mothers of Invention.
