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
