Cowsill Came Home

Remember the Cowsills, the family that put the “dys” in dysfunctional families? First, they gave the world three Top 10 hits, appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show” a few zillion times, and even had their own NBC specials.

Well, then you’ll also remember that their great big tour bus took a little detour down the road of drugs, alcoholism and parental abuse before it was the chic talk-show topic. The family – not just the group – disbanded, sued one another and now, according to a source, hate each other no end.

After years of not hearing a single note from them, big brother Bill has gone country and Western with a new album called “On the Floor of Heaven.” We hear that Bill and his band, the Blue Shadows, have signed a deal with Sony, Canada – which is great, of course, if you’re a fan and live in Canada. But if you’re like us and have opted not to make the 4 ½ hour commute, you can’t get a copy of the album unless you call a special 800 number that, quite frankly, we don’t know. But not to worry. We see this album, being pitched on an infomercial real soon alongside the wonderful hair in a can.
