Flo & Eddie (Howard Kaylan, "Eddie", and Mark Volman, "Flo" aka "Phlorescent Leech") are a comedic musical duo. The two were the original founding members of the Top 40 pop group The Turtles. After The Turtles dissolved, Kaylan and Volman first joined the Mothers of Invention as "Phlorescent Leech & Eddie". Due to contractual restrictions made early in their career, Mark and Howard were prevented from using the name "The Turtles", as well as their own names in a musical context. The Phlorescent Leech and Eddie were actual nicknames of two of the Mothers of Invention road crew. When bandleader Frank Zappa was injured during a concert in London in 1971, Kaylan & Volman found themselves at an impasse, as the Mothers of Invention were out of action for a time. They responded to these events by recording The Phlorescent Leech & Eddie on Reprise Records with the other members of the Mothers of Invention.
Although the album failed to chart, they continued releasing albums including the more successful Flo & Eddie, Illegal, Immoral and Fattening, Moving Targets, and Rock Steady with Flo & Eddie.
During the 1970's, Kaylan and Volman continued to do session work, lending their trademark harmonies to T.Rex, John Lennon, Roger McGuinn, Hoyt Axton, Ray Manzarek, Stephen Stills, Keith Moon, David Cassidy, Alice Cooper, Tonio K, Blondie, Bruce Springsteen, The Knack, The Psychedelic Furs, Sammy Hagar, Livingston Taylor, Burton Cummings, Paul Kantner, Duran Duran, the Ramones and others.
In 1984, as "The Turtles ...featuring Flo & Eddie", (together with three other groups from the 1960's: Gary Puckett, Spanky and Our Gang, and The Association), they traveled across the US and Canada as "The Happy Together Tour". The following year they got together with The Buckinghams, Gary Lewis and The Grass Roots, for a 1985 version. For eight months, the tour was on the road it was consistently one of the top 10 grossing tours in the country.
They also created the music for the films Down and Dirty Duck and The Adventures of the American Rabbit.
