ritchie adams, though a very important contributor to the archies sound, is a bit of an enigma as far as his bio goes.

ritchie's early work stemmed with a band called the fireflys out of the new york city area. (note: not the fireflies). adams began his solo career in 1960 on ribbon, the same label that released the fireflys three singles. ritchie's biggest success in the early 60's is as the writer of the world wide smash and classic rock song "tossin' and turnin'", recorded first by bobby lewis. this song was covered by numerous artists, includng one of my favorite bands the guess who and has been awarded by bmi as one of the most successful songs of the 20th century. "tossin' and turnin'" has appeared in numerous film soundtracks, including "animal house".
