The Wild Giraffes

The Wild Giraffes were formed in the mid 70s by Mentor High School graduates Chris King and Edgar Reynolds.  King was the Daltry (the voice) to Reynold's Townshend (the songwriter).  Initially, the duo was joined by Chris Burgess on bass, Alan McGinty on drums and Jeff Ianini on guitars.  Their music was not typical of what was happening in Cleveland at the time.
