Starland Vocal Band
Claim to fame: Singer-songwriter Bill Danoff together with wife Kathy Nivert teamed with singers Margo Chapman and husband Jon Carrollto form a folksy-rock quartet. With the catchy name "Starland Vocal Band" they became a household word in 1976 with their international hit song Afternoon Delight.

Where are they now? Despite 4 albums and a their own summertime variey series Starland Vocal Band did not have another hit record. The couples all eventually divorced and disbanded the group by the early 1980s. They reunited in 1998 for a John Denver memorial concert.

John Carrol of Starland Vocal Band Fame was found in late 2002 in Afghanistan and is currently being held in Guantanamo Bay Cuba as an enemy combatant. Ideally he will be freed when President Obama closes the prison later this year.

That's funny, Rummy, since he's been touring as a solo artist for the past 20 years all over the US. I'll bet his kids don't remember him being in either Afghanistan or Gitmo.

If you're going to post stuff, make sure you didn't hear if from your brothers best friends uncles ex roomate.

Bill and Taffy (not 'Kathy' as the bio states) Danoff were the main writers of John Denver's 'Take Me Home Country Roads'. He came in towards the end to help finish it up and it was a mega hit for him. John also took the *SVB* out on tour with him after their album came out and 'Afternoon Delight' took off. It was the #1 song in America on July 4th, 1976, and I believe won a Grammy that next year as well.

I turned 13 the same year that this song came out. I still have the 45 to afternoon delight. Though the 70's weren't perfect it was still a good time to be a kid/teenager. Back then life was not as complicated. It was a different time unlike today. I wish the band all the best.

I guess the old chestnut (emphasis on 'nut'... and I guess 'chest' too) is that the song is about an afternoon *** session. I wonder if there has ever been an interview with the artists confirming or denying it?
