Leif Garrett (born Leif Per Nervik; November 8, 1961) is an American singer, actor and television personality. He became famous in the late 1970s as a child pop star and teen idol, but received much publicity later in his adult life for his drug abuse and legal troubles making him infamous. His breakthrough was as "Jimmy Henderson" in the 1969 film "Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice". He soon earned himself roles as the protoganist's son "Mike Pusser" in the Walking Tall series, and a recurring role as "Zack Russell" on the ABC-TV series Family.
In autumn of 1976, Garrett signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records and recorded his first album, "Leif Garrett". His first four singles charted modestly in the US, with "Runaround Sue" reaching the highest at #13. In mid-1978, he signed with Scotti Brothers Records and recorded his second album "Feel the Need". The album's first single, "I Was Made For Dancin'", was his biggest hit reaching #10 on the US Hot 100 and #4 on the British Hot 100.
