  1. Not a bad fit for the times. A – list musical parents surely greased the record wheels for these three. I liked a few of their songs and videos, but felt their voices were too tinny and shrill. But, they were cute and had nice videos to promote their stuff. Seeing them on Family Feud would have been fun. We can all assume that if your parents were rock n roll stars in the 60s, that your kids would be crazy as street rats.
