Tiger Beat magazine introduced 13-year-old
Leif Garrett in its July 1975 issue and ran the first full-page color pinup of
Leif in its next issue (Aug. '75). At left is the first pinup (click on for full-size
image). The first article
was an introduction to Leif by Vincent Van Patten of "Apple's Way" and told about
how Leif was to play Vincent's brother in the CBS series, "Three For the Road,"
premiering that fall. Leif went on to grow his hair, begin a singing career and star in
numerous movies that never made it to the theaters. At right is a more recent picture of
Leif. You can go to his official Web site by clicking on the picture!
Chris Rebello -- OK, here's a longshot. A loyal visitor
to Stuck in the '70s dug the boy from "Jaws." He played Mike Brody, and it was
the only movie in which he appeared, according to Internet Movie Database. He was born the
same year as me (1963) and died in 2000 of a heart attack. Click his picture above to

Andy Gibb rocked my world in
the late '70s, although my favorite disc jockey said the youngest Brother Gibb sang like a
chimp in heat! Click the picture at left to visit the Bee Gees' official site with a
tribute to the late Andrew Roy Gibb.
Shaun Cassidy, David's younger brother. I never let on that I
liked him because he seemed a bit too girly to me, too
pretty. (I secretly owned one of his albums!) At that time, I was into the macho dudes.
But, plenty of chicks dug him and it's easy to see why! He was one of the Hardy Boys on
the TV show, along with Parker Stevenson, and has since gone on to directing and Broadway
theater. Da-doo ron, ron! Click on either picture to go to Valentine Val's fan site -- it
I first saw native Australian Rick
Springfield in a 16 magazine, sexy and
shirtless, in the early 1970s. I most recently saw Rick in Tunica, Miss., perfoming at the
Gold Strike casino. I took this picture of him July 25, 2003, at that concert just before
he dripped sweat onto my arm. Mercy! Click either picture of Rick to go to his official
Web site. Maybe he's coming soon to a town near you!!
Bobby Sherman was a biggie in the late '60s and early '70s. Since he is
20 years older than me, I remember thinking he was just "some old dude." Now, I
can see why the gals dug him.
