All roads lead to Get Back at First Draft this week. John Lennon made a joke about Dicky Doo & The Don’ts in one of the episodes. Wondering if it was just another Lennon joke, I did some research.
It turns out that there was such a band who recorded under that name from 1957-1960. They adopted this oddball name because band leader Gerry Granahan was under contract to another record label. Dicky = Gerry.
Here’s a Dicky Doo & The Don’ts collage.
Here are a few of their tunes without any dos or don’ts.
