Purple nehru-jacketed rocker in the the "USO Down" episode (01/21/1988) of the Vietnam War television drama series Tour of Duty. He sings "Wooly Bully" and "the national anthem of Vietnam," Eric Burdon's "We Gotta Get Out of This Place" at a Vietnam War USO show. Then his chopper crashes on the way to the next gig. After the crash, Long John (Patrick O'Bryan) nobly sacrifices himself like a guest star should, by throwing himself on a grenade meant for a major character. In this case, Sgt. Zeke Anderson (Terence Knox).
