William (Billy) Cowsill, 58, lead singer of the 1960s family band the Cowsills, has died at his home in Calgary after a long illness. His death Friday night was confirmed by relatives who had gathered in Rhode Island for a memorial for his brother Barry Cowsill, who was also in the band and drowned in the wake of hurricane Katrina. Billy Cowsill moved to Canada 35 years ago and continued his music career with Blue Northern and later the Blue Shadows. But it was the Cowsills that led to his greatest success as lead singer with such hits as Hair and Indian Lake. The band inspired the TV series The Partridge Family.
