In no way could that have been a bad thing and I sincerely hope that no one thought I meant it was :?
Not my taste in music but you had to admire the kids for their energy and talent from that day to this. :D

Indeed you can, but if you rootle around YouTube for The Osmonds 25th Anniversary, there's a hint from Jay in one of the films that he left the group "to do what he always wanted to do".

He went to Uni.

As much as I love The Osmonds, I think that the parents were very, very, PUSHY.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

RIP, Andy. You will be missed! :( He was and remained a favorite of mine for years--even though I have to agree with Tony that the best Moon River was Audry Hepburn's in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Does not detract from their impact at the time and it's what gave them all the freedom to do what they wanted to do in later life and I don't hear anything about the parents complaining over what their kids did next.

RIP Andy

The Osmonds were very religious (Mormons) and there was no sex, drugs, rock & roll or coca cola.

I'm pretty sure that Mum & Dad ruled with an iron rod.

He died? :shock: Noooooo!I remember watching The Andy Williams Show as a kid and loving it. Ever since, I've had a fondness for him and his smoothie voice. There was a guy who could sing a song straight - no messing about and embellishing.
