Richard Shaw Brown (1966 with his group, he on the top left.)


American rock musician, lead singer, harmonica player, and co-songwriter of Psychedelic group The Misunderstood. The Misunderstood were a rock band originating from Riverside, California in the mid-1960s. The band moved to London early in their career, and although they recorded only a handful of songs before being forced to disband, they are considered highly influential in the then-emerging genre.

Richard Brown is currently working as a gemologist and jewelry designer in Bangkok, Thailand, for Astral Gemstone Talismans, a brand known for creating fine gems-jewelry based on the Navaratna belief in Jyotish (Hindu astrology).
