I certainly don't think so, but how did a rumour? like this ever start? Howard Kaplan (Kaylan aka Eddie) was certainly never the lead guitarist (LOL) of The MOI Wink

I've found no information on a Dink Kaplan or his brother...

Howard was never *a* guitarist in the MOI. It was Mark Volman who played guitar occasionally (e.g. on Rudy Wants To Buy Yez A Drink).

Not to mention the fact that Softly Softly was released in 1967 and Howard didn't join the Mothers until 1970.

Terry Ted played drums for The (other) Knack, 20-some-odd years later . . .

Well, Eddie was born 'Howard Kaplan,' so they got that detail right...

I'm currently working on confirming or denying this rumour... stay tuned!

From correspondence with Michael Chain, founder and lead singer of The Knack:

Quote:
Frank DID play on piano for me on Softly Softly (the only non-member of the group to play on a KNACK record). Frank was recording next door to me in studio B at Capitol (I think he was working on Lumpy Gravy)... Frank was a great guy and played on Softly as a favor because I didn't want Capitol Records bringing in an outside studio cat who might influence my sound.


If Mr. Chain is correct and FZ was working on Lumpy Gravy at Capitol Studios LA, this dates the Softly, Softly session to March 14-16, 1967.

Another piece of the FZ puzzle locked into place! Wink

And I bought myself a nice copy of the single, sometimes it's real nice to be proved wrong Wink

Interesting indeed, and FZ's extensive quoting of a hit by (another) Knack in the 80s gives this some twisted Conceptual Continuity.
