So I’m doing a rerun today but it’s not something I ever posted here. I wrote this back in July of 2007 in CityBeat about the musical group The Ohio Express.
This piece won me an award from the Society of Professional Journalists for excellence in journalism which was nice. All I know is I had a great time writing it.
This story is about five young Ohio kids pumping out bubblegum hit music in the 1960’s. When I started to write this back in 2007, it was only meant to be a “Where are they now?” type of story, but when I started turning over rocks, I knew I had more than that.
These Ohio kids had the world by the tail. They were going to be rich, going to be stars — but something wasn’t adding up.
