Dwayne, left, and Dean Young, pictured on Wednesday, spent their early lives traveling the South for their classic rock band, Riverstreet, that opened for Gregg Allman and other big names in the 1970s and '80s.
On Feb. 6, 1983, the British band Badfinger was performing in Brassy’s Night Club in Cocoa Beach, Fla. By then, the band had a few worldwide hits under its belt; tickets were $5. Opening for Badfinger that Sunday night was Riverstreet, a Gainesville-based classic rock group that banged out covers of Heart, Led Zeppelin and others as it toured the South.
