Jerry Scholl, who with his brother Bob, founded the Mellow-Kings in 1956 passed away earlier this week. Originally named the Mellotones, "Tonite Tonite" was their big hit on the Herald label in 1957. The group was forced to change its name after the 45 was released, as another group had already claimed Mellotones. Bob Scholl passed away in 1975.
