The Metallics was a Los Angeles quartet that recorded for the Baronet label in 1962. The members were lead singer-songwriter John "J.D." Wright, bass singer Ronnie Deco, and brothers Charles and Ernest McGee. Their first single, the memorable "Need Your Love," was a Los Angeles hit in April 1962, but Baronet owner Bob Ross (who formerly owned Aardell/R-Dell Records) was never able to break it elsewhere. After four singles The Metallics dissolved.
J.D. Wright died in 1993, not long after he appeared at DWS Show #13. But his echo-soaked, high-tenor performance in "Need Your Love" continues to thrill new fans.
