Brandon Cruz is the singer for DR. KNOW, a punk band that has been around since the early '80s. Dr. Know plays in the old school punk tradition, and their blistering live shows prove they haven't missed a step. Brandon Cruz is also known for having played Eddie Corbett on the TV series "The Courtship of Eddie's Father."
Brandon's solo CD, called "Eddie Is a Punk," has a lot of old Eddie's Father stuff on it, like him singing a punk version of "People let me tell you about my best friend..." with composer Harry Nilsson, one with Micky Dolenz, and two takes with Bill Bixby. And there is also great hardcore with bands such as HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED, THE BRANDON CRUZ BAND and TWISTER NAKED. It's available from Taang Records.
Thanks to Brandon, the Surfrider Foundation will be receiving a $25,000 donation this fall from the TV game show "The Weakest Link." A lifetime member, he selected Surfrider to be his charity as he competed against other TV stars from the '60s, '70s and '80s. Brandon is also involved with A MINOR CONSIDERATION, an organization that helps child actors maintain their careers after they've outgrown their juvenile parts.
