Bossmen - On The Road

Bossmen - On The Road (Lucky Eleven 231. 1966)

Another Michigan 45 here, this time I'm certain they were from the area. From Flint, Michigan infact.

Featuring Dick Wagner who would later write and produce for Terry Knight & The Pack, amongst others and play with Lou Reed and Alice Cooper in the 70s.

The Bossmen were prolific putting out 7 x 45s, mixing up punk, pop, beat and ballads.

Not quite right. Dick Wagner went on to The Frost, not Terry Knight & The Pack. But I can see where the Lucky Eleven label might have made you assume the connection.

He's right! It was Dick Wagner and the Frost. My cousin Lanny Roenicke played bass for the Bossmen.

Dick Wagner wrote "Widetrackin" for The Fabulous Pack (as they were known at that time), and was probably involved in writing and/or producing other stuff for the band, as was the original statement. I still have a copy of the 45 and pic sleeve. The Bossmen were from Saginaw, but Lucky 11 records was in Flint (Dort Highway). Flint, Saginaw, Bay City, and Midland would probably fit inside a 50 mile circle, and was all pretty much the same market. I was truly blessed to be a youngin in Michigan during that period of music history.
