Mark (Flo) Volman and Howard (Eddie) Kaylan, founders of the Turtles, due to contractual stipulations found that when the Turtles broke up (in 1970) they didn't own the band's name. And they couldn't use their own names in a musical context either! So they embarked on a new career as Flo & Eddie.

They worked for a time with Frank Zappa as members of the Mothers of Invention; did a lot of studio work including background vocals on Springsteen's "Hungry Heart", T-Rex's "Bang A Gong", and "Love My Way" by the Psychedelic Furs; and even a stint as drive-time DJs at WXRK-FM in New York City.

Eventually in the early 80's they regained rights to the "Turtles" name. They had several successful tours with other 60's era bands as the "Happy Together" tour.
