Knotts Landing Appearance


Huck Flyn was born in Evanston, Illinois, on the north side of Chicago in the 50'sa…early on, his family moved to southern California.        

Flyn started playing guitar at age 11 and did his first gig at 13. He was part of a few bands in high school and graduated from Thousand Oaks high school. He then graduated from L.A. Valley College with an AA degree and got a scholarship to Pepperdine University, which he decided not to take because he was so involved in live performance. He met up with director/choreographer, Kenny Ortega in 1973 and together, they worked on the script and soundtrack to Ortega's brain child, "Bimbo's Cosmic Circus," an off-Broadway Rock musical where they had success in San Francisco, Hollywood, and San Diego. 

After the play closed, Flyn formed a band and rocked in his hometown of Thousand Oaks, Ca five nights a week. He was also the first to start "Comedy night" in Ventura county in 1978 (Garry Shandling was his 1st comic)...

In 1977, while attending a L.A. Kings hockey game, he met and became friends with Chuck Barris. He wound up doing several Gong Shows and a Dating Game. In 1985 Huck Flyn, joined the "Otis Day and the Knights" tour in New York in which Dewayne Jesse reprised his "ANIMAL HOUSE" role on the road.                                                                                   

Huck Flyn performed on Knots Landing in 1987 and shortly after, while visiting a comedy club in San Francisco, he ran into a couple old friends, Marty Cohen, and Bruce Baum…they hooked him up with a guest set to a couple clubs and the crowds went wild.

Huck has opened for Albert King, Elvin Bishop, Pat Travers, Albert Collins, Spyro Gyra, and many many more. He spent his music career at clubs such as The Troubadour, The Sasch, The Coach House, The Ventura Theatre, The Central, and The Palomino, just to name a few.

Huck is currently working on his autobiography about his experience in S. Viet Nam called, "Rockin' Nam". He is also talking to Hollywood about a possible movie deal with a script written by himself and screenwriter, John Loran (whom James Cameron called the next Tarintino) called, "360 DAYS"...

He also plans to shoot a 30-minute TV pilot called "WE BUILT THIS BUSINESS" (a round-table discussion with writers, players, singers, engineers, record execs, and label people from the 60's) later this year.
