In 1965, the Preachers were as wild as it comes, both in image and sound. Despite their long haired/holier than thou hybrid look, this L.A. fivesome didn’t preach so much as howl a hi-octane punk-blues for the Sunset Strip set. Their greatest moment remains “Who Do You Love,”
an insanely intense reading by the group’s original teenage wildman, Richard Fortunato. Moonglow Records canned
him for being too uncommercial, which just means he’s one of our favorites.
