From what I heard the father was a real tryrant, physically and mentally abusing the boys, and adding rape in regards to the daughter.

So sad. Unfortunately, he is just one among thousands.  :\'( :\'(


I saw the Cowsills in concert way back in the dark ages. They were playing at a now defunct amusement park in Mass. After we left the park, we went to the local Howard Johnson's for dinner. As we were leaving, the Cowsills pulled in. We were so thrilled. After they went into the resteraunt, we all went over just to touch their van-ooh. Weren't we privileged.  ::)

They are originally from Rhode Island, so I'm sure they have played all over New England.

Barry Cowsill funeral to be in Newport







NEWPORT, R.I. A funeral will be held in Newport next month for Barry Cowsill, a member of a family band that inspired "The Partridge Family" television series.

The 51-year-old Cowsill was found dead on a New Orleans wharf on December 28th, some four months after he disappeared shortly after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. His death was believed to be related to the storm.

The Cowsills recorded a series of top hits between 1967 and 1970, including "The Rain, The Park and Other Things" and "Hair." They began their career playing in a Newport club before a television appearance led to a record deal.

The service will be held on February 18th at Cowsill's childhood home in Newport. There will be a party in his honor that evening at the Viking Hotel.
