- Biff Rose: American pianist, singer and songwriter who has a tough time fitting into a category.

His lyrics were arch and whimsical with sarcastic commentary about love and freedom. He was simply too odd to be accepted by either Broadway or the pop culture, compared to a vaudeville entertainer reincarnated as a spacey hippie.
