Five Americans was a 1960s American band, most famous for the song "Western Union", which reached #5 in the U.S. Billboard chart and was their only single to chart in the Top 20. The Five Americans, previously known as The Mutineers, were from Durant, Oklahoma. their manager, Jon Abdnor Senior, president and owner of Abnak Records and Bankers Management and Services Insurance Co., was allowed control of their finances. After Abdnor's death in 1996, all rights to their songs should have reverted to the original group. The Five Americans broke up in 1969 and went their separate ways. Mike Rabon had a successful touring career afterwards, released two albums that sold well, and played guitar for the Tyler, Texas, pop group, Gladstone. He later returned to college, acquiring a master's degree in public school administration, and has been in the Oklahoma school systems for 28 years. John Durrill, the keyboardist, wrote "Dark Lady" for Cher and "Misery and Gin" for Merle Haggard, and was also a member of the touring band The Ventures. He now lives in Los Angeles. Norman Ezell, who became a teacher and minister in Northern California, died of cancer on May 8, 2010 at the age of 68. Jim Grant, bassist died on November 29, 2004. Jimmy Wright is living in Ohio and is a videographer for Breakthrough Ministries.
