Biography

Silver was an American 1970s country-rock band, best known for their 1976 pop hit "Wham Bam," written by country songwriter Rick Giles.

Members of the group included John Batdorf (formerly of Batdorf & Rodney), lead vocals and guitar; Brent Mydland (later of the Grateful Dead), keyboards and vocals; Tom Leadon (brother of the Eagles' Bernie Leadon), bass guitar and vocals; Greg Collier, guitar and vocals; and Harry Stinson, drums and percussion. Phil Hartman designed the cover art for Silver, the quintet's only album. The band's recordings were released on the Arista record label.

The single's title, "Wham Bam", was shown as "Wham Bam Shang-A-Lang", and made #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of 1976. It is ranked as the 70th biggest hit of 1976. Arista executives gave the band the song to record, after concluding that none of the other tracks on the album they produced had single potential.[citation needed] Arista head Clive Davis himself co-produced their sole album.
