LOS ANGELES (Jan. 6) - The body of Barry Cowsill, singer-bassist for the '60s pop act the Cowsills, has been discovered in New Orleans, more than four months after he went missing when Hurricane Katrina hit the city. He was 51. Cowsill's body was recovered December 28 from the Chartres Street Wharf, according to Dr. Louis Cataldie, head of the state hurricane morgue. The body was identified January 3, based on dental records. A cause of death was not determined. A Wednesday posting on the Cowsill family's Web site brought the discovery to light. Cowsill had not been heard from since he left a message on his sister Susan's cell phone September 1. A former member of the Cowsills and the Continental Drifters and a fellow New Orleans resident, Susan was unhurt in the disaster. The Cowsills were the inspiration for 'The Partridge Family.' Are you familiar with their two biggest hits?----- 'The Rain, the Park and Other Things'------- 'Hair'----- With Susan, mother Barbara and brothers Billy, Bob, John and Paul, Barry Cowsill was a member of the popular Rhode Island band that bore the family name. The group charted eight pop singles from 1967-69; its biggest hits, "The Rain, the Park and Other Things" and the title song from the musical "Hair," both reached No. 2 nationally. The Cowsills served as the model for the Partridge Family, a fictitious family band fronted by David Cassidy and Shirley Jones, whose 1970-74 TV series spawned its own run of hits.
