Lead singer of Gary Lewis and the Playboys signs, "Rock on!"
Autograph note signed: "Rock on! Stan baby!!!/ Gary Lewis", in black ink, 5x3 card. Gary Lewis (b. 1945) headed the pop music group Gary Lewis and the Playboys, who played their first gig at Disneyland in 1964 without disclosing that Lewis was the son of famed comedian Jerry Lewis. The band made it to stardom after a 1965 appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. They had a No. 1 hit in This Diamond Ring and 16 other Top 40 Hits, eight gold singles and four gold albums, but only Lewis and keyboardist/accordionist John Lewis remained in the band after 1965. The band broke up when Lewis entered military service in 1967, but later re-formed, performing on Jerry's Labor Day telethons for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Lewis was drummer and lead singer. Cash Box magazine voted him 1965 Male Vocalist of the Year; Lewis beat out acts like Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra for this honor. He was the only artist in the 1960's to chart his first seven releases on Billboard's Top 10 list. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Fine condition.
