OK, if Stills hadn't bumped into Young and Palmer on Sunset, and we never heard of the Buffalo Springfield- that instance of bad teeth WOULD HAVE stopped (at least Stills) from getting rich and famous. If Rick James hadn't deserted from the navy, there's other possibilities...Phunnnnnny thread.
Peter Tork and Stephen Stills were
good buds, WAAAAAY before the Monkeeeees.
Do I need to mention that Neil knew
the Monkey boys?
Ancient history, like Stephen's teeth.
Neil had bad ugly teeth too.
Bad teeth never stopped those guys from
getting rich and famous, like Keith Richards.
As the years went by,
all of a suddenly (sic)
their teeth looked better.
Because money changes everything.
I'm pretty sure they all did OK.
Geeeeez, some of you guys need
a Rock and Roll history class.
Lotsa different versions of this story out there. I'm not sayin' I know anymore than anybody else about it but, I recently read an interview with Stills and he was asked directly about this. He says that he did audtion. The teeth didn't directly affect the outcome of the audtion, that they would've fixed his teeth, it happens all the time in Hollywood. He says the problem was over publishing. He had a song called 'Sit Down I Think I Love You' that was covered by a group called the Mojo Men. Springfield later recorded it. He was ripped off on the publishing and vowed never to let that happen again. Screen Gems wanted control of his publishing and this is why it didn't work out. The teeth thing is a better story but this is what he says. He was there.Revise your lesson with this: TV kept Stills off the Monkees. He wanted the gig very badly, it was huge money for the times. A screen test does not treat one kindly if they have cosmetic deficiencies. Welcome to Hollywood!
