The Hudson Brothers shot to fame after appearing on the Sonny and Cher Show, which resulted in them performing in their own variety half-hour series, The Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Show, which ran from 1974-75.

During this time they also released a number of singles. Bill was married to Goldie from 1976 to 1982, and has had a strained relationship with Oliver and Kate for many years.
