Billy Vera & The Beaters

Not only is Billy Vera (born William McCord, Jr. on May 28, 1944 in Riverside, CA) a rock historian, he's made some rock history himself over the last quarter century. Vera wrote for the likes of Barbara Lewis and Rick Nelson during the mid-'60s before recording his "Storybook Children" as an R&B duet with Judy Clay in 1967 for Atlantic. It proved a solid hit, as did their 1968 follow-up "Country Girl - City Man." Vera surfaced as a solo artist in 1987 when "At This Moment," a song he'd cut in 1981 with his band, Beaters, was featured on the popular TV sitcom Family Ties and topped the pop charts on Rhino. Vera recently returned to a soulful duet format, this time with ex-Labelle belter Nona Hendryx, for "You Have to Cry Sometime" on Shanachie. Vera has also compiled and annotated many CD reissue projects, notably the Legends of Specialty series. ~ Bill Dahl, Rovi

Billy has some great tunes, most rarely if ever played on the radio.
I never get tired of this music, loved it in the 80's, love it today!
Not many comments recently. I followed Billy and the Band in the 80's. Listen to O What a Night (to be missing you) and the great - Room with a view of the Blues. Also, Private Clown. Anyone else catch The Beaters at The Troubadour on the Tuesday Midnight shows?

"At This Moment" _was_ an overplayed song for a while after that sitcom appearance, but it's nice to hear it again. I wish the live album I got of him The Beaters I got on cassette ages ago would be reissued--it ' s a great r&b bar-band album, on the order of Southside Johnny, but more soulful. "At This Moment" isn't even the best track on that album.

I really enjoy hearing "I Can Take Care of Myself" on Pandora. I've given it a Thumbs Up, hoping that "At This Moment" would sometimes be played. I NEVER hear it. Sometimes I don't get Pandora.
i remember hearing about him from an aunt and uncle that i had. they loved him and brought him to light for me
I just found the name and artist trying just to play the song on computer Help
I LOVE THE SONG "WHAT DIDI YIU THINK" BUT I CAN FIND IT
At This Moment, I can't find it :(
I didn't know anything else about this guy besides remembering his name as the artist for "at this moment." I have tried to find the song as a ringtone for 3 different phones, and can never find it!
really love this song
