Leif Garrett - 1978

Leif Garrett took Shaun Cassidy's winning formula of recording oldies to the next level. In a single year he charged with "Surfin' USA," "Runaround Sue" and "The Wanderer." Leif got his start in sitcoms like The Odd Couple and Family before breaking into music. His time at the top was brief, and he got into hard drugs in a major way. He's been arrested time and time again for drug offenses over the past 30 years.
