    Biography :

    Tex & the Chex were a New York group that, with some personnel changes, evolved into the Magicians, famous (among '60s collectors anyway) for their inventive, ominous 1965 single "An Invitation to Cry," which was included on the Nuggets compilation.


    Tex & the Chex were an interracial group that included future Magician Alan Gordon, Mike Appel (later to manage and produce Bruce Springsteen), bassist Everett Jacobs, and singer Rod Bristow. However, Bristow was replaced by Garry Bonner, Everett Jacobs by the unrelated Jake Jacobs, and Appel by John Townley. The group recorded their first single on Atlantic, "My Love," written by Bristow and "I Do Love You." ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi
