Public Image

Donny Osmond Part Three

Osmond states that he has had a tremendous public-image struggle since Donny & Marie ended in 1979. Reviews from Allmusic noted that while Osmond remained a gifted singer a series of creative missteps in the late 1970s resulted in his virtually disappearing from the public eye throughout the 1980s. He was described in the 1980s as having an unhip image, and he said he was embarrassed that the Osmond name was not considered cool. A publicist recommended that Osmond purposefully get arrested

The Coasters Young Blood

Their my favorite R&B group, and even today, theirs group, nor band can hold a candle to them. So I’m happy to finally do The Coasters Young Blood, and I’m looking forward to you enjoying as much as I.

The Coasters are an American rhythm and blues/rock as well as roll singing group that had a string of hits in the late 1950s. Starting with Searchin and also Young Blood,their most unforgettable songs were written by the songwriting and producing team of Leiber and Stoller. Although the Coasters originated outside of mainstream doo-wop, their records were so often imitated that they came to be an important part of the doo-wop legacy through the 1960s.
