Web Sites About Wilkes-Barre Band The Buoys and Their Song "Timothy"

This posting is in reference to a previous entry on The Bouys, which originated in Wilkes-Barre and scored a hit song with 1971's controversial Timothy.

Greg M. Woodrow recently emailed me the following links that include some interesting information about The Buoys and Timothy:

"I came across your page,, and saw your request for information about The Buoys, and their song, Timothy.

I have a website, The Last Standing Man (, that details the career of Jerry G. Hludzik, one of members of The Buoys. My site contains pages specific to The Buoys, some of which you may (or may not) find useful.

Here are links to specific pages about Timothy, Rupert Holmes, and The Buoys:
