I'm not sure how well known this is but Creed from The Office was once the lead guitarist of The Grass Roots. Both the character and the real Creed are named Creed Bratton and you can read more here and here.
The Grass Roots are my 6th favorite bands from the 1960s...and now every time I hear the guitar solo from "Let's Live For Today" I will think of Creed playing guitar...

This is The Grass Roots live from a show hosted by Jimmy Durante and there are some great shoots of Creed at the 1:31 mark.

The Grass Roots are still around [minus Creed of course] and they make the State Fair circuit pretty regularly. You should at least get a Grass Roots greatest hits collection, such as this one.
