The lead vocalist of late-1960s folk-rock band, Clear Light, Cliff DeYoung continues to find success as an actor. The star of Broadway musicals, Hair and the Tony Award-winning Sticks And Bones, in the early-1970s, DeYoung has been featured in such films as Blue Collar (1978), Protocol (1984), Dr. Giggles (1992), the Skateboard Kid (1993), the Substitute (1996), Carnosaur II (1997) and Suicide King (1998). He co-starred with David Bowie in the 1983 flick, Hunger.
Although he has focused less on television, DeYoung has been equally successful with the medium. The star of the TV movie, Sunshine, in 1974, he scored with a top twenty hit when his solo recording of the John Denver-penned folk-pop tune, "My Sweet Lady", was used as the theme song when the film was transformed into a weekly show by ABC. DeYoung's return to music, however, was brief. After recording a solo self-titled album, he returned his full attention to acting.
