Bruce & Terry were Bruce Johnston and Terry Melcher. The pair were instrumental in the development of surf rock, recording under a variety of names, most notably with the band The Rip Chords. Johnston was a well-known session musician and Melcher (the producer of The Byrds records and the son of actress/singer Doris Day) had a minor solo career as Terry Day before becoming the youngest staff record producer in Columbia Records' history. In 1963, they began recording together and helped produce the album "Surfin' Round the World".
