    They were a one hit wonder in the late 1960's with their Soul-Funk song "Tighten Up". Apparently the eponymous Mr Bell was conscripted by the US Army and injured before the song was a hit.

    The thing is that every reference I can find on the web (including Wiki) states that he was sent to Viet Nam and shot in the leg, but I'm sure I remember reading his interview back in the 1980's where he said he was stationed in Germany and hurt in a vehicle accident.

    Is my memory playing tricks? Anyone out there know more?
