The Astronauts (3)
Surf group from Boulder, Colorado. Formed in 1960 as the Stormtroopers and signed to the RCA label a few years later in an effort to compete with the success of the Beach Boys. The group experienced modest and brief success, until the arrival of the Beatles in the U.S. led to their decline in popularity. Members included Rich Fifield, Dennis Lindsey, and Bob Demmon on guitars, Stormy Patterson on bass, and drummer Jim Gallagher.
