John Sebastian was born on this day in 1944. In 1965, Sebastian formed the Lovin’ Spoonful with Zal Yanovsky, Steve Boone and Joe Butler. Sebastian plays guitar, autoharp, and the harmonica.

The Lovin’ Spoonful is famous for folk-tinged hits like “Do You Believe in Magic“, “Summer in the City“, “Daydream,” “Nashville Cats,” “Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind,” “Six O’Clock,” and “Girl, Beautiful Girl.”

In 1976, Sebastian had a number one single with ‘Welcome Back,” the theme song to the TV show “Welcome Back, Kotter.”
