John Joseph Maus (November 12, 1943 – May 7, 2011), known professionally as John Walker, was an American singer, songwriter and guitarist, best known as the founder of The Walker Brothers, who had their greatest success in the 1960s, particularly in the United Kingdom.

Early life and career[edit]

John Maus was born in New York City, the son of John Joseph Maus Sr., who was of German extraction, and his wife Regina. With his parents and his older sister, Judith, he moved to California in 1947, at first settling in Redondo Beach and later in Hermosa Beach. He began learning saxophone, clarinet and guitar as a child, and by the age of 11 also began acting and appearing in TV talent shows. He had a role in a regular sitcom, Hello Mom, and small uncredited parts in the movies The Eddy Duchin Story (1956) and The Missouri Traveler (1958). He became a friend of Ritchie Valens, and was an honorary pallbearer at Valens’ funeral. In 1959 the family moved again, to Inglewood, where he made the acquaintance of David Marks and Dennis and Carl Wilson, helping to teach them guitar.[2] He began using the name John Walker at the age of 17, because he was unhappy at how people pronounced his real name.[3][4]

From 1957 onwards, he worked as singer and guitarist with his sister, as the duo John and Judy. They recorded several singles for the Aladdin, Dore, Arvee and Eldo labels between 1958 and 1962. In 1961, they formed a backing band and performed as John, Judy and the Newports, until the band split up after an engagement in Hawaii. They then met Scott Engel, who had been playing bass in The Routers, and, with drummer “Spider” Webb, formed a new band, Judy and the Gents. Maus obtained an ID card in the name of John Walker, in order to perform in clubs around Los Angeles while under the legal age to do so. In 1963, Walker and Engel, with two other musicians, toured the Midwest as “The Surfaris“, although the group included none of the musicians who played on the Surfaris’ records. Walker also released his first solo record, “What a Thrill”, on the Almo label, with The Blossoms as backing singers.[3]

The Walker Brothers[edit]

Main article: The Walker Brothers

He formed The Walker Brothers (originally The Walker Brothers Trio) in 1964, with himself as lead vocalist and guitarist, Engel on bass and harmony vocals, and Al “Tiny” Schneider on drums. Walker and Engel were signed as a duo by Mercury Records, and recorded their first single, “Pretty Girls Everywhere” in Los Angeles. There they became a leading attraction at Gazzari’s nightclub, and appeared on the Shindig! TV show developed by Jack Good, and then on a weekly TV show, Ninth Street A Go Go. Late in 1964, they met drummer Gary Leeds, previously of The Standells, who had recently toured the UK with singer P.J. Proby, and who persuaded them that they would have greater success in England. Before leaving, they recorded their second single, “Love Her”, overseen by Nick Venet and arranger Jack Nitzsche, with Scott Engel taking the lead vocal part for the first time. With financial backing from Leeds’ stepfather, Walker, Engel and Leeds travelled to the UK in February 1965 for an exploratory visit.[2][3]

In the UK, “Love Her” was released on the Philips label, an affiliate of Mercury, and reached # 20 on the UK singles chart.[5] Walker and Engel signed a new recording contract, and, with Leeds, began performing live in England, to considerable press attention and with growing numbers of – predominantly female teenage – fans. Their next record, a version of the Bacharach and David song “Make It Easy On Yourself“, produced like their other British recordings by Johnny Franz, reached # 1 in the UK chart in September 1965.[5] Over the next two years the Walker Brothers became – with the Beatles and the Rolling Stones – one of the most popular groups in the country. Their second British number one, “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore” in 1966, was also their biggest hit in the US, where it made # 13 on the Billboard Hot 100.

During this period, The Walker Brothers played some performances with The Yardbirds; John eventually sold guitarist Jeff Beck the 1954 Fender Esquire used on many of the Yardbirds’ most famous recordings from Spring 1965 to early 1966. Walker had modified the guitar, carving a Stratocaster-type contour in the picking arm area.[citation needed]

John Walker wrote in his autobiographical The Walker Brothers: No Regrets – Our Story:[3]

“I was always the leader of the band. I was the one who said, ‘Let’s do this, let’s do that.’ I spent a great deal of time making sure that the group would make incredible music. Most people don’t realise that it was I who chose the songs that would become The Walker Brothers’ biggest-selling singles….. I was aware that things had changed a lot: Scott had become the lead singer of the group… Now that he was singing lead, I enjoyed the opportunity to create some unusual harmonies, something I had never done before. We knew that we each had an important role, and felt responsible to each other, with one goal in mind, which was to make good records that were unique for the time.”

Later career[edit]

The Walker Brothers split up in early 1968, principally as a result of tensions between Maus and Engel, after a UK tour in late 1967 which also featured Jimi Hendrix, Cat Stevens, and Engelbert Humperdinck, followed by a tour of Japan. John Walker then began performing solo with a backing band. He released a single, “Annabella”, co-written by Graham Nash, which reached # 24 on the UK singles chart,[6] and an album, If You Go Away. Later solo singles on Philips, and then on the Carnaby label owned by Mervyn Conn, were less successful, as was a 1969 album, This Is John Walker. In 1971, he recorded an album co-produced by Bill Wyman at the Château d’Hérouville in France, but it was never released. Two years later, he toured briefly with singer Jimmy Wilson and a backing group, as The New Walkers, before they split up.[2][3]

Late in 1974, he agreed with Engel and Leeds to reform The Walker Brothers. In 1975, they released an album, No Regrets. The title track was taken off as a single and rose to # 7 on the UK chart in early 1976.[5] They recorded two further albums together, Lines (1976) and Nite Flights (1978), which were less successful. They undertook some cabaret performances, although Engel (by now more usually known as Scott Walker) was reluctant to sing live; the group’s contract with GTO Records ended and, according to Walker, the group “just drifted apart”.[2][3]

In 1986, he took part in a 1960s revival tour, before finally moving from England to San Diego. He took an electronics course, and became a technical consultant to manufacturing companies, while developing his own recording studio. He also began writing and composing material, mainly for other artists, and formed his own publishing company, Arena.[1] In 2000, he set up his own record label and released a CD, You. He toured Britain again as part of a nostalgia package tour in 2004, and released an album, Silver Sixties Tour 2004, as well as resuming extensive touring in his own right. In 2007, he released two new CDs, Just For You, a collection of love songs, and Songs of Christmas and Inspiration. He toured the UK again in 2009, as part of an “oldies” package,[1][2][3] and in 2010 with the Dakotas, whose original line-up backed Billy J. Kramer in the 1960s.[7]

A dual autobiography, written by Walker and Gary Leeds, The Walker Brothers: No Regrets – Our Story, was published in 2009.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Walker was married four times. He married American pop singer Kathy Young in 1965; they divorced in 1968. In 1971 he married Julie Parker-Cann; they divorced a few years later.[when?] He married Brandy Nielsen in 1980; they divorced in 2003. In December 2003, he married Cynthia, who sang with him on tour. At the time of his 2009 book, Walker lived in California and had four children and three grandchildren.[3]

In 2010, Walker was diagnosed with liver cancer. He died of the disease, at his Los Angeles home, on 7 May 2011.[2]

Tatyana Marisol Ali (born January 24, 1979) is an American actress, model and R&B singer, who is best known for her role as Ashley Banks on the NBC sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. From 2010 to 2012, she starred as Tyana Jones on the TV One original sitcom Love That Girl!, and had a recurring role as Roxanne on the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless from 2007 to 2013.

Early life[edit]

Ali was born in North Bellmore, New York, the eldest daughter (she has two younger sisters) of Sonia, a nurse, and Sheriff Ali, a police detective.[1] Her mother is Afro-Panamanian[2][3] and her father is Indo-Trinidadian.[3]

Career[edit]

By the age of six, she had begun her acting career, as a regular child performer on Sesame Street starting in 1985, even appearing with Herbie Hancock in a musical number. She also appeared twice on Star Search. She made her breakthrough when she was cast as Ashley Banks for the television sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in 1990. She sang on various episodes of the show, including a heavily altered version of Aretha Franklin‘s “Respect” and the original song, “Make Up Your Mind” produced by Robert Jerald of N’Spyre Music Productions. Will Smith asked her if she seriously considered pursuing a musical career. Despite her singing ability, she concentrated on her acting career on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air the next few years. In the final season of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1995–96), Ali began preparing herself for her musical debut. The result was the album Kiss The Sky, which was certified gold in early 1999. The album spawned the hit song “Daydreamin'”, released July 21, 1998, produced by Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, which peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and on the UK Singles Chart.

The album spawned two further UK hits, “Boy You Knock Me Out”, featuring Will Smith, which peaked at No. 3 and is her biggest hit to date; and “Everytime”, which was her third top 20 hit in the UK, peaking at No. 20. She made an appearance in Smith’s album Willennium for the track “Who Am I” with MC Lyte. Along with her musical career, Ali kept acting in many films. She had the chance to work with recognized film directors such as Takeshi Kitano (Brother), Rodrigo Garcia (Mother and Child), among others. In 2005, she completed work on the film Glory Road and starred in the music video for Nick Cannon and Anthony Hamilton’s “Can I Live?” as Cannon’s mother. In early 2008, she performed on the song “Yes We Can“, a will.i.am project supporting Barack Obama‘s presidential campaign. She also appeared in the subsequent music video which gained coverage on the “What the Buzz” segment of ABC‘s World News Now.

She also performed the title song, “Sunny Valentine” along with Terrence Quaites for the indie film, Rockin’ Meera directed by Param Gill in 2005. In 2009 and 2010 she produced and starred in the BET web show, Buppies. She is currently on recurring status on the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless as Roxanne.[4]

Ali can be seen in the show, Love That Girl! on TV One. She stars as Tyana (which comes from the last five letters of her name). When asked if the character bears any similarities to her, Ali said in a CaribPress interview, “She’s a bit neurotic and I hope I am not quite like that.”[5]

“One thing that I do love about her is that she is really multidimensional,” she went on to say in the same interview. “I think it’s nice to have a female character that is portrayed in (a) really holistic way.”[5]

Ali also starred in Nora’s Hair Salon and Nora’s Hair Salon 2: A Cut Above. In 2011, Ali received the Living Legacy Award from the Caribbean Heritage Organization in Los Angeles.[5][6] In 2012, Ali appeared as a guest on The Eric Andre Show.[7] Ali’s most recent role, as of January 15, 2013, is starring as Maya, along with Craig Wayans and Damien Dante Wayans, in the BET comedy, Second Generation Wayans.

In January 2014, Ali released a new EP entitled Hello, with her first single being “Wait For It”, which she also performed on The Arsenio Hall Show on February 4, 2014.

In July 2016, Ali sued Warner Bros claiming that the company used her idea for the show The Real after she pitched the concept in December 2012.[8]

Personal life[edit]

Ali attended Harvard University, where she received a bachelor’s degree in African-American studies and government in 2002.[9] She traveled the United States as a spokesperson for Barack Obama‘s 2008 presidential campaign and headed voter registration drives at college campuses.[10][11] In 2012, she continued showing her support.[12]

Ali was in a relationship with actor Jonathan Brandis for six years.[13][14] On March 31, 2016, Ali revealed that she was engaged to Vaughn Rasberry, assistant professor of English at Stanford University and they are expecting their first child.[15] She and Rasberry married on July 17, 2016 in Beverly Hills, California.[16][17]

Jennifer Anne Lien (born August 1974)[1] is an American former actress, best known for playing the alien Kes on the television series Star Trek: Voyager.

Early life[edit]

Jennifer Ann Lien was born in Illinois in August 1974, the youngest of three children, and joined the Illinois Theatre Center at the age of 13.[1]

In a 1992 interview, Lien said: “My childhood was wild because I was very uncomfortable living where I lived (the South Side of Chicago). It was very industrial – if you didn’t fit in you got your ass kicked. I was just my own person, and I adopted this really tough skin because I had to if I wanted to survive. A lot of my friends were into drugs, and I saw a lot of them die.”[2]

In a 1993 interview, Lien said: “When I was a little kid in Chicago, I always used to pretend I was somebody else. I wrote little plays, I was a tomboy, I hung out with the guys a lot. I never had much interest in hanging out with girls. I was always writing plays or watching movies or reading books, and when I was in seventh grade in junior high, I joined the drama club and found that I could fit right in, I could relax, I could do anything I wanted. I began to think I could make a difference, I could make people happy. I felt like I made the world just a little better for a while. Then, on the advice of an eighth grade teacher, I went to acting class, and then got an agent. I did industrial films and some theatre. Soon, casting directors started hiring me and then I got an interview with the people from AW (Another World). They liked me, asked me to come to New York, so here I am!”[3]

Career[edit]

Her first television appearance was in a bubblegum advertisement playing twins.[4] Her first appearance on a television series was playing a music academy student in an episode of Brewster Place starring Oprah Winfrey in 1990, the same year she provided her voice for the dubbed English language version of Baby Blood, a French horror film. Lien moved to New York in 1991 after she was cast in the role of Hannah Moore on the series Another World in 1991, where she attended and graduated the Professional Children’s School while working on this series.[5]

In a 1992 interview, Lien said: “A couple of years ago, I was trying to get an audition for a baseball movie, so I said that I could play baseball. We’d always played a lot while I was growing up, like in the backyard. But when I showed up at the audition, I was faced with these Goliath-like, testosterone women who could really play. I did survive the two days of training and auditions, but I basically pulled every muscle in my body!”[6]

In 1993, she was cast as Roanne in Phenom, a sitcom starring Judith Light. That year she also participated in the recording of Adam Sandler’s comedy album They’re All Gonna Laugh At You in which she played the part of the Valedictorian on the track “The Buffoon And The Valedictorian”, as well as one of the daughters on the track “Oh, mom…”.[7]

In 1994, she was cast as Kes on Star Trek: Voyager. Her character is Ocampan, a species in the Star Trek universe that lives for just 8 or 9 years, who joins the crew of the starship after it is stranded 75,000 light-years from Earth.[8] She was released from the series at the beginning of season 4, to allow the budget to bring on Jeri Ryan, who joined the cast as Seven of Nine. In 2000, Lien returned for a season 6 episode of Star Trek: Voyager titled “Fury“, where she had input into the script.[9]

In a 1995 interview, Lien said the following about a Voyager co-star: “I’m so lucky that so many of my scenes are with Ethan. He’s such an incredibly talented guy, really great and so funny. He’s always making us laugh. It’s the best possible situation for an actress to play opposite him.”[10]

In a 1996 interview, Lien said the following about two Voyager co-stars: “I was working on a scene in Sickbay the other day with Kate and Bob Picardo, and they – they know what they’re doing. They’re both such good actors. I thought, ‘Oh, God, I’m so lucky to be here!’ I didn’t say anything to them because – I don’t know why I didn’t say anything. It’s probably just not the kind of thing you say to people. I was seeing talent, experience and wisdom in action, inventiveness and creativity happening in front of me. It’s a good job I have.”[11]

Richard Lutz wrote: “The character which best embodies the humane values embedded in Star Trek mythology is Kes, thanks in large part to Jennifer Lien, whose remarkable performance brought to life a beautiful child-like being (Ocampa) whose short lifespan and humanity remind us that the most important element in a life worth living is a loving connection with our fellow human beings.”[12]

After Voyager, Lien appeared in the movie American History X as older sister Davina Vinyard alongside Edward Norton’s character Derek Vinyard. In 1998, Lien appeared in SLC Punk! playing Sandy, the wild girlfriend of Matthew Lillard’s character Stevo. She also voiced Agent “L” for the first three seasons of Men in Black: The Animated Series (1997-1999) and the first 7 episodes of the 2000 season.

Conventions[edit]

Lien has attended sci-fi conventions in relation to her role as Kes when she was working on Voyager and after her film career ended.

In a 1995 interview, Lien said the following about these conventions: “The conventions are something within themselves, a unique world. It’s a very different experience in that I can talk to other people involved in the world of Star Trek, like authors and actors form other Star Trek shows. I also get to meet people from other SF shows, because they tend to have guests from other series at the conventions I attend. The fans love the conventions, love meeting the people involved in their favorite shows. That makes you want to give them everything you can. I try to tell them what’s going on, share my laughter and tell them about the wonderful experience I’ve been having on Voyager. The feedback is just so positive. The fans seem to really like the show, and that’s good. If they have any negative feedback, they give it to me, too, which is fine. They’re usually pretty respectful, and they come up with things that are very interesting – positive and negative – and I get sucked into it.”[11]

Personal life[edit]

She is married to writer and filmmaker Phil Hwang; their first child, Jonah, was born on September 5, 2002.[13] Since the birth of her son, Lien has retired from acting and voice-over work; however, she was credited as executive producer on her husband’s 2008 film Geek Mythology.[14]

In August 2010, Lien said she intended to work as a nutritionist after completing her studies.[9]

In July 2012, Lien was arrested in Harriman, Tennessee, for an alleged domestic assault.[15]

In April 2015, Lien was arrested in Harriman, Tennessee and charged with evading arrest, resisting arrest, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault in relation to an alleged speeding offence.[16]

In September 2015, Lien was arrested in Harriman, Tennessee for two counts of misdemeanor exposure after allegedly exposing herself to a child under the age of 13. During an argument with a neighbor (which reportedly started with Lien criticizing her neighbor’s parenting skills after her children began crying),[17] Lien allegedly exposed her breasts and buttocks after being told to “mind her own business.”[18] Lien reportedly threatened the police who arrested her.[17][18]
