Blondie ChaplinTerence William "Blondie" Chaplin, originally with the South African soul-cover band The Flames, best known as guitarist and singer in the Beach Boys from 1972 to 1974 and for his session-work with the Rolling Stones, joined the Band when they went back on the road after Richard Manuel's death in 1986. Singing Richard's vocal parts, and doubling on guitar and drums, Blondie Chaplin stayed with the Band until the tour was over at the end of the year. He was also part of the "Australian Band" that toured in 1988.
Chaplin can be heard on Rick Danko's first
solo album, and
also on the Band's 1996 release
High on the Hog.
In the early
'80s, Blondie Chaplin worked with Rick Danko and members of the Byrds, doing
a "Byrds reunion" tour. Garth Hudson is present on the 1977 solo album
