RIP Terry “Cherish” Kirkman

Terry Kirkman is on the bottom right
It’s probably not exceedingly cool to admit to a love for several songs by 1960s hippy flower children The Association. But to me, Cherish” and “Never My Love” are a couple of the best tunes of that rock ‘n’ roll-plentiful decade.

Terry Kirkman was a founding member of The Association and sang many of the band’s greatest hits, after already impressively playing music with Frank Zappa, Cass Elliot, and David Crosby. He was clearly a talent and needed an outlet. “Windy,” “Along Comes Mary,” “Everything That Touches You,” and “No Fair At All” are also each worth adding to your collection.

RIP Terry Kirkman, who has died at age 83 from congestive heart failure.
