Jan & Dean

Man denke an die "Surfer"-Musik der 1960er Jahre und an zwei Gruppen, die sofort in den Sinn kommen: Die Beach Boys und Jan & Dean. Jan Berry war die Hälfte des Duos und sang die Hauptrolle bei The Beach Boys' 1966 Hit Barbara Ann.

Jan Berry wurde am 3. April 1941 in Los Angeles geboren. In der High School traf er Arnie Ginsburg und Dean Torrance. Das Trio bildete eine Musikgruppe, The Barons, und Berry und Ginsburg begannen, Songs zu schreiben. 1958 wurde Jennie Lee, eine Ode an eine LA-Stripperin, in Jans Garage aufgenommen. Jan & Arnie zuerkannt, wurde es ein Hit und erreichte Platz 8 in der Pop-Charts. Eine weitere Jan & Arnie-Seite folgte, bevor das Jan & Dean Line-Up 24 Chartsingles aufrollte. Ihre Hits endeten 1966, einige Monate nachdem Jan im Koma lag, nachdem er sein Auto zerstört hatte, als er durch die Kurve von Dead Man's raste.

Was Berry und die Co-Autorin Jill Gibson dazu inspirierte, auf Buffy Sainte-Maries Anti-Kriegshymne Universal Soldier zu antworten, ist unklar. Sowohl die Donovan- als auch die Glen Campbell-Version des Songs waren im Herbst'65 in den Charts, aber keiner von beiden löste die Art von Kontroverse aus, die Eve Of Destruction hatte. Als er den Universal Coward mitschrieb, hatte Jan keine direkte Beteiligung am Vietnamkrieg. Er hatte keinen militärischen Hintergrund, im Gegensatz zu Dean, der einen Einsatz in der Armeereserve gemacht hatte. Es ist also interessant, dass Dean durch die Texte von Coward ausreichend abgeschreckt wurde.... dass er seinen Namen nicht auf dem Label haben wollte.

Jan & Dean feierten Ende der 70er Jahre ein Comeback auf der Rückseite des TV-Biopics "Dead Man's Curve". Obwohl es keine neuen Platten gab, spielte das Duo seine Hits auf der Oldies-Schaltung.

Jan Berry starb am 26. März 2004 an einem Anfall.
