Real Name:William E. Sheppard
Profile:

Do NOT confuse with the UK Bee Gees arranger Bill Shepherd.
US Chicago-based doo-wop/vocal group producer/manager and head of several labels nicknamed "Bunky" who rose to prominence in the late 1950s through the 1960s. He is often recognised on some labels as "Bunky's Pick" (A choice mad by him of a side to be played). Bunky started a vocal group called The Sheppards, in which he did not perform, and he shared control with Carl Davis over the Dukays (known for "Duke Of Earl", credited to their singer Gene Dixon aka Gene Chandler). He also started the Apex (4) label in 1959, co-founded Pam Productions, the Nat Records (2), PAM (4), and Wes labels, and Constellation Records (2) in 1961, and founded Bunky Records (a division of Scepter) in 1966. He was closely involved with the early operation of the Chi Sound and Vee Jay Records labels as well. His sons Billy and Stan were members of Skool Boyz in the 1980s.
b. 20 March 1922 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. d. 1 July 1997 in Los Angeles, California, USA
