Buzzy linhart

William Linhart (born March 3, 1943), better known as Buzzy Linhart, is an American rock performer and musician.

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he began playing percussion for symphony at the age of seven, switching to vibraphone at ten. At fourteen he entered the Cleveland Music School Settlement which was a world renowned conservatory of music. Because of this training he led bands all through school and at the age of 18 entered the U.S. Navy School of Music as a percussionist.

In 1963, he moved to New York City and became friends and roommates with John Sebastian. He also became a protégé to the senior guitarist and folk singer Fred Neil. One of his first bands, with fellow musicians Steve De Naut, Serge Katzen, and Max Ochs, was Seventh Sons, who released a raga-rock LP for ESP Records. Buzzy eventually released a series of solo albums from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s starting with his Philips debut buzzy (the title with a small "b") in 1969.

His prowess on the vibraphone found him performing as a session musician on recordings by Buffy Sainte-Marie, Richie Havens, Carly Simon, Cat Mother & the All Night Newsboys, and Jimi Hendrix (on the Cry of Love album).

Linhart is joint composer of "(You Got To Have) Friends," a collaboration with Mark "Moogy" Klingman, which became singer [1].
