Bo Donaldson and The Heywoods - really? Sure - why not!

Bo Donaldson and The Heywoods.   If you think their song Billy, Don't be a Hero is just wrong (it is), then try this lesser hit called Who do You Think you Are.  That song was written by Clive Scott & Des Dyer of the band Jigsaw - known for their hit Sky High.  I found this record in the fifty cent bin yesterday.  "The band was formed in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1965 by their leader Bo Donaldson.  Harold "Corky" Pickering, a member of the group, came up with The name "The Heywoods" or "Heywood" from a Rolling Stone album, named after a man with the last name of Heywood, which was a writer of at least one of The Rolling Stone songs. "Corky" Pickering liked the ring that this name gave and thought it was appropriate, the name just suited them," according to wiki.
