I used to love the 1960s group the Turtles. Do they still exist today?
—Judy Stevenson, Sioux City, Iowa

Group founders Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan continue to perform occasionally as the Turtles, which captivated listeners with the hits "Eleanor" and "Happy Together." The two met in high school and have been partners in music for 45 years. After the Turtles disbanded in 1970, Volman and Kaylan joined Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention and then formed the duo Flo and Eddie. Volman lives in Nashville, Tenn., where he teaches at Belmont University's School of Music, and Kaylan resides in Seattle.
