D-DAY (TOO YOUNG TO DATE SINGLE)

THIS POST IS FOR MARK, D-DAY WAS A New Wave band from Austin, Texas, regionally popular in the early 80’s.De Lewellen - vocals Stuart Hillyer - guitarDave Fore - drums John Keller - bassGlover Gill - keyboardsWill Fiveash - guitar (replaced Stuart Hillyer)D-Day’s first 45 rpm single “Too Young To Date” was written by David Fore and De Lewellen. It reached as high as #1 on Rodney Bingenheimer’s show on KROQ in Los Angeles. A second single “Right to Know” also got a fair amount of air time on KROQ and on KLBJ in Austin. This led to a record with A&M in 1982 when Glover and Will had joined the band.Note that after the band had been together for a while, Glover Gill joined on keyboards and eventually Will Fiveash replaced Stuart Hillyer on guitar. You can read more about D-Day on this site: http://www.madmartian.com/music_dday.htm"Too Young To Date"reached #1 on KROQ in Los Angeles. There was some controversy over the "pop my cherry" lyrics. Some irate mothers complained to the FCC and the record was banned in California. After a DJ was suspended for playing the record, the 3rd verse was re-recorded to replace "pop my cherry". The altered version was played on the radio but not released to the public.De and John got married and have a Cajun band called ZYDECO RANCHZ. Will is a programmer for Sun. David is a programmer for IBM and plays with The Eggmen. Stuart just finished med school. SOME OF THIS INFO CAME FROM http://www.last.fm/ ,ENJOY!!!
