They were a bit of a flash in the pan although I did like their music. Do you remember the A's?, Hall and Oates? Lots of Doo-Wop, jazz, and blues came out of PA too.

I believe they were out in the western part of the state?

"Russian engineer F.N. Semyenov used a cable tool to drill an oil well on the Apsheron Peninsula, ten years before Colonel Drake's famous well in Pennsylvania. "
