A Scholar At Woodstock

“Guess who eats together at the Carnegie Deli. Bowzer from Sha Na Na and Arthur Fonzarelli.”

Alan CooperAdam Sandler is right. Jon “Bowzer” Bauman is a Jew. But not everyone knows that Bauman was actually the replacement for the band’s original bassist, Alan Cooper. In 1971, Cooper left the band to pursue his graduate studies. Today, Cooper is a Bible scholar and the Provost of the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York City.

And with the 40 year anniversary of Woodstock this year, Cooper is getting a little press (Check out this cool article about him here) Why? Because the guy performed at Woodstock. You see the picture of him here? Well, check out the video below to see him in his hey day. He is the lead singer, wearing the sunglasses and the vest with no shirt.

Merci to Jewschool for finding this.
