Early stardom came as "Flip" in the pop duo Skip & Flip (with Clyde "Skip" Battin ), courtesy of a million-selling 1959 smash the two cut in Phoenix , Arizona, " It Was I ".  In what became a pattern in Paxton's early career, the song was recorded first and the group assembled second: after successfully shopping their demo to a label owner, Gary became "Flip" and Clyde became "Skip", after the man's pet poodles, a "group" put together just to have a name on the record.  According to Paxton, he was up picking cherries on an Oregon farm when he heard the song on a transistor radio and realized it had become a hit.  The duo made television appearances, toured with superstar deejay Alan "Moondog" Freed , and soon followed their success with another hit, " Cherry Pie ". After this second chart appearance, the pair split up.
