The Zombies

This week on Prog-Watch my very special guest is the legendary keyboardist, composer, and vocalist Rod Argent! Rod rose to fame with The Zombies, and was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame as a member of that seminal band! After the Zombies disbanded in the late 1960s, he enjoyed much success with his own band Argent and with various solo albums and collaborations, before getting back together with Colin Blunstone and reforming The Zombies for a new century! Tune in to hear much of my chat with Rod, and a lot of great Zombies, Argent, and solo Rod Argent music!

Starts tomorrow (28 April) on Progzilla Radio!

Time Of The Season by The Zombies is one of the first songs I can remember hearing as a child, and that strange beat and smooth, almost ethereal (over an AM radio!) vocal made a lasting impression. So it was with great pleasure that I was actually able to interview the owner of that voice, Mr. Colin Blunstone, a few weeks back! As an original British Invasion artist he had many recollections of those heady days, and also talked about his solo career, and time spent with The Alan Parsons Project and the offshoot band Keats. Tune in to this week’s Prog-Watch to hear some of that interview, and a whole lot of great music by The Zombies, The APP, Keats, Colin alone, and some bloke named Neil MacArthur! (If you don’t know who this is, tune in and find out!)
