Think they were from Yakima or "duh" Union Gap. Had it in my mind that Gary Puckett actually went to school in Spokane for a while.
Anyone from that area remember Jimmie Rodgers? (Honeycomb, and many other big hits, even had his own TV show) As I recall he was from a town near Yakima.(perhaps Selah)
He was the guy that supposedly got rude with a Chips Officer while driving drunk and got the crap knocked out of him and never was able to perform again. Tho they are now trying to say that was on old wives tale I clearly remember him getting quite a settlement out of the State of California.
Until Heart he was clearly the biggest star from Washington State.
