    (1965- )
    Born in Black Oak, Arkansas
    Original line-up:
    Jim 'Dandy' Mangrum (March 30, 1948- ), lead vocals and washboard
    Rickie Reynolds, guitar
    Stanley Knight, guitar
    Harvey Jett, guitar
    Pat Daughtry, bass guitar
    Wayne Evans, drums
    Recorded the single 'Jim Dandy' (1974)
    Recorded the albums 'Black Oak Arkansas' (1971), 'Keep the Faith' (1972), 'Raunch N Roll Live' (1973), 'High on the Hog' (1973), 'Street Party' (1974), 'Ain't Life Grand' (1975), 'X-Rated' (1975), 'Balls of Fire' (1976), 'Race with the Devil' (1977), 'I'd Rather Be Sailing' (1978), 'The Black Attack Is Back' (1986) and 'The Wild Bunch' (1999)
    The band members got busted for grand larceny after stealing their first PA system from the local high school.
    On their only hit single, guest vocalist Ruby Starr is as prominent as the rest of the band.
    They underwent numerous personnel changes, with Mangrum as the only member left from the original line-up by 1977.
    Mangrum would mime having sex with his washboard on stage.
    They recorded the less-than-subtle song 'I Want a Woman with Big Titties.'
    They were one of the last acts personally signed to Atlantic Records by label founder Ahmet Ertegun.
    They built up a loyal fan base through near-constant touring in the early 70s.
    Mangrum returned to rocking after recovering from both a heart attack (1983) and a car crash in which he fractured three vertebrae (1991).
    Mangrum's testosterone-fueled stage act was an influence on David Lee Roth.
