Teegarden & Van Winkle were a folk rock duo consisting of David Teegarden and Skip "Van Winkle" Knape (d. November 27, 2018, age 74) that became famous during the early 1970s. Formed in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the early 1960s, they later relocated to Detroit, Michigan where they worked with Bob Seger and other top local area artists. The duo released their debut album in 1968, "Evening At Home With Teegarden & Van Winkle."
Teegarden & Van Winkle debuted on the Pop/Rock charts in 1970 with "God, Love And Rock & Roll," a rock adaptation of the traditional gospel song, "Amen," featuring Teegarden's powerhouse drumming and Van Winkle's energetic organ riffs. This Top 40 smash was followed in late 1970 by "Everything Is Going To Be Alright," which became a minor hit. The duo recorded several albums through 1973 that included "But Anyhow" (1969) and the eponymous "Teegarden & Van Winkle with Bruce" (1970). They reunited in 1997 for another album, "Radioactive," and continued performing together occasionally thereafter.
