Studio players of considerable reknown before they paired up, Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr found the Top 40 once while working together with 1978′s “Falling.”
Having bounced from band to band and from city to city, the guitar-playing duo of LeBlanc and Carr settled in Muscle Shoals in 1976.
With each toting a solo record that found no acclaim, the pair turned out some low-charting records in ’76 and ’77 before hitting the Top 40 with “Falling.”
Even though “Falling” rose to #13 in April ’78, a falling out between the boys precluded any further hits together.
Since 1980, LeBlanc has been recording Christian music while Carr has produced albums by Paul Simon (There Goes Rhymin’ Simon) and Bob Seger (Against the Wind), among others.
