About James Intveld...

James Intveld

James Intveld was a native of Los Angeles, California (born circa 1959), who started his career at an early age, listening and singing along to his parents' recordings of Hank Williams (Monday 17 September 1923 - Thursday 1 January 1953), Dean Martin (Thursday 7 June 1917 - Monday 25 December 1995), Lefty Frizzell (Saturday 31 March 1928 - Saturday 19 July 1975) and Elvis Presley (Tuesday 8 January 1935 - Tuesday 16 August 1977).

James Intveld is a rockabilly musician, singer, songwriter, performer, actor, and film director.  James Intveld began entering talent contests as a country music-singing teenager at The Palomino Club, which was located in North Hollywood, California.

Initially, James Intveld worked with his younger brother Ricky and friend Patrick Woodward in a band known as The Rockin' Shadows.

The Rockin' Shadows dissolved when Ricky Intveld and Patrick Woodward left to work with Rick Nelson's Stone Canyon Band, Ricky on drums and Patrick on bass guitar.

Both Ricky Intveld and Patrick Woodward later died in the same airplane accident which took the life of Rick Nelson (Wednesday 8 May 1940 - Tuesday 31 December 1985), a tragedy which cut deeply into James Intveld's heart and soul.

On Thursday 26 December 1985, Rick Nelson (Wednesday 8 May 1940 - Tuesday 31 December 1985) and Stone Canyon Band left for a three-stop tour of the southern United States.

Following shows in Orlando, Florida and Guntersville in Alabama, Rick Nelson (Wednesday 8 May 1940 - Tuesday 31 December 1985) and Stone Canyon Band members took off from Guntersville in Alabama for a New Year's Eve extravaganza in Dallas, Texas.

The plane crash-landed northeast of Dallas in De Kalb, Texas, in a cow pasture less than two miles from a landing strip, at approximately 5:14pm Central Standard Time (CST) on Tuesday 31 December 1985, hitting trees on its way down.

Seven of the nine occupants were killed: Rick Nelson (Wednesday 8 May 1940 - Tuesday 31 December 1985) and his companion, Helen Blair; bass guitarist Patrick Woodward, drummer Rick Intveld, keyboardist Andy Chapin, guitarist Bobby Neal, and road manager / soundman Donald Clark Russell.

Pilots Ken Ferguson and Brad Rank escaped via cockpit windows, although Ken Ferguson was severely burned.

Now on his own, James Intveld worked as a singer / songwriter and concentrated on acting.
