the Chylds / Echos


Canton, 1964-70

Canton's top teen band, the Chylds in their youth were known as the Echos and released their first 45, covers of "Around and Around" and "You Make Me Feel Good" under that moniker. They scored a huge local hit with "(I Want More) Lovin'". They changed their sound from garage rock, to soul, and after several personnel changes, a harder rock trio. Drummer Joe Vitale played in Joe Walsh's Barnstorm band of the 70s.
