Felix Cavaliere

Early in 1965, Felix formed the "Young Rascals" with the additions of Dino Danelli, Eddie Brigati and Gene Cornish. On October 28, 1965 The Rascals performed at the Phone Booth, a club in the "discotheque district" of Manhattan's East Side. Their high-energy set attracted the attention of Sid Bernstein, and the group was signed with Atlantic Records. Before they knew it, they began releasing records.

From 1965 through 1969, the Rascals were one of the biggest groups in the country. Their hits including the Felix-sung "Good Lovin'," "Groovin'," "A Girl Like You," "A Beautiful Morning" and "People Got to Be Free".  As they evolved from blue-eyed soul (a term coined to describe them) to pop psychedelia and jazz fusion. Felix sang lead on most of the tracks, while Eddie sang lead on their ballads. The Rascals' biggest hit "People Got to Be Free" was co-written by Felix and Eddie as an impassioned response to the assassinations of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. It topped the charts for five weeks in 1968 and inspired a follow-up single, "A Ray of Hope", written for and about Teddy Kennedy.
He continues to tour as "Felix Caviliere's Rascals.."
On June 18, 2009, Cavaliere (along with former writing partner Eddie Brigati) was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame
