A singer named Keith

I guess I have a soft spot for American singer Keith.  Not sure why.  Anyway, we usually hear Keith referred to as a one-hit wonder with his top ten smash hit “98.6”, which climbed to #7 on the hot 100 in 1966.  But no, Keith actually had a legitimate hit before that, earlier in 1966 with the song “Ain’t Gonna Lie” which broke into the top 40.  It’s actually a good song, just not incredibly memorable… consequently it’s a forgotten oldie.

Keith is probably a record holder of sorts… the only rocker I know that was arrested for draft evasion while he was on a concert tour… oops.
