  1. Was Foster Sylvers a poor mans Micheal Jackson? I would assume he was part of the Sylvers.

    A good top 40… I have a good novelty song out of this top 40 ready to go tomorrow.

    • Yes he was… the Sylvers- a very poor man’s Jackson 5.. The Osmonds may have been better- at least they had- CRAZY HORSES going for them!

    • They can always hang on to that! They don’t have much else… Speaking of that…now this is stretching…you know how the Stones just released the new music from the vault? Is there another Crazy Horses in the dusty Osmond vault?

    • Hmmm I bet they are holding it back for a November release- cash in on Christmas this year like it always seems like their is a Beatles related product out for Christmas- of course there is nothing wrong with THAT!

    • That is it! Getting one more big score.

      You know though…a few of them loved that kind of music…I would not be surprised if something like that is there…we will never hear it lol.
