This was taken on board a cruise ship, navigating Alaska's inside passage in 1998. Bowzer, in his classic pose, was part of the featured entertainment. He put on a great show, and I had the chance to talk to him at great length. We didn't see too many whales, but had a great time discussing life in general. He was classically trained at the piano,and ultimately graduated Magna Cum Laude from prestigious Columbia College in New York. Bowzer was the main force in the oldies revival group, SHA NA NA. Over 20 million LP's and 45's were sold by the group, starting in the late 1960's and continuing into the 1980's and beyond. They also had a very popular Television show from 1977-1981, appeared at Woodstock, were in the movie "Grease", and a "SHA NA NA" group still tours today. Bowzer still performs, and you can visit his website
for additional information. He is also heavily involved with an organization called Truth In Music. Their main goal is to be certain that when you go to see a group, especially oldies groups, that you see as close to the real thing as possible and not an imposter group with no original members.
