Gary Wright

Dream Weaver

Gary Wright (born April 26, 1943 in Creskill, New Jersey, USA) is an American musician, most famous for the above video and his hit song "Dream Weaver".

Gary Wright, a personal friend of George Harrison, appeared in a TV show at the age of 7. Later he came to Europe to continue studying psychology. In 1967 he joined the band Spooky Tooth as singer and keyboardist. After Spooky Tooth's split in 1974, he continued his solo career culminating in "Dream Weaver". The single peaked at #2 for 3 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1976, and went gold. It was also featured in the Wayne's World film and soundtrack. Later that year, his follow-up single "Love Is Alive" also reached #2 (for 2 weeks).

Ronnie Montrose played guitar on the Gary Wright song "Power Of Love" from the Dream Weaver album.

This would be the last significant success Wright would achieve on the pop chart until 1981, when he returned with "Really Wanna Know You", a bouncy, bass-heavy song that managed to hit #16.

His 1981 song "Comin' Apart" was sampled by Armand van Helden in the 2004 club anthem "My, My, My".
