Skip van WinkleSkip, whose real name was Skip Knapé, teamed with David Teegarden to form the folk rock duo Teegarden and Van Winkle in the 1960s. They met in Tulsa but moved to Michigan soon after forming the group. They settled in Brighton and had some legendary jam sessions and performances there with Bob Seger, among others.
Van Winkle played the electronic organ, bass and did vocals, while Teegarden played the drums. They had a string of hits in the 1970s. Their biggest hit, "God, Love and Rock & Roll", peaked at No. 22 on the Billboard charts in 1970.
In 1972, while Teegarden went on tour with Bob Seger and his band, Skip formed his own group, known as the Skip Van Winkle Band. In the early 1990s, former Doors guitarist Robbie Krieger formed a trio called The Robby Krieger Organization featuring Skip on electric organ and Dale Alexander on drums and backing vocals.
Teegarden and Van Winkle reunited for another album, "Radioactive", in 1997, and continued to perform together occasionally after that. Skip passed away in 2018.
