Gerome Ragni and James Rado

Biography

Gerome Ragni and James Redo are best known for writing the hit musical Hair, whose songs "Aquarius," "Good Morning Starshine" and "Let the Sunshine In" are still part of America's musical lexicon and emblematic of a generation. Even Nina Simone was a fan, reworking "Ain't Got No" to marvelous effect. (Songs like "Sodomy" and "Hashish," on the other hand, seem to have been successfully forgotten.) Ragni followed up Hair with the 1972 musical Dude, which ran for just two weeks and had critics politely scratching their heads. Dude's 1995 revival fared no better.
