Upcoming Events for The Zombies

Many current stars have professed admiration of The Zombies. BADLY DRAWN BOY cited the band in NME's poll of the most influential artists of all time; TOM PETTY said: "If a group like The Zombies appeared now, they would own the world". THE BEAUTIFUL SOUTH, have recorded "This Will Be Our Year" for their current "Golddiggas" cd. Even BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN turned up at a New York concert a couple of years ago.

In their heyday the band enjoyed massive hits such as the Argent-penned "She's Not There" (a major hit several years later for SANTANA) and "Time of the Season". Indeed, America took them even more to their hearts than Britain; "Time of the Season" is one of only a handful of UK hits to have been certified as receiving 4 MILLION plays on US radio, while the LA Times named them as one of the all time top ten British bands. "Vanity Fair" magazine in 2002 chose the bands' second album "Odessey and Oracle" as being the defining pop album of the sixties! Even ELVIS had Zombies singles on his juke box at Gracelands, while their cds still sell a cool 100,000 a year. When the group split in 1968, ROD went on to form his eponymous band former Verve frontman RICHARD ASHCROFT declared himself a major fan and scored hits with such rock anthems as "Hold Your Head Up" and "God Gave Rock n Roll To You" (covered by KISS, amongst others), and has since achieved huge success in the fields of record production, television and stage musicals. Along with drummer PETER VAN HOOKE (MIKE & THE MECHANICS) , Rod produced three albums for TANITA TIKARAM, including the massive "Ancient Heart" album which included the world-wide hit singles, "Twist in My Sobriety" and "New Tradition". COLIN, meanwhile, remained a familiar chart presence through hits like "Say You Don't Mind", a cover of the Motown hit "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted" with Dave Stewart and highly rated solo albums such as "One Year" and "Ennismore". He also achieved huge success as featured vocalist on a string of albums by the ALAN PARSONS PROJECT brainchild of the former PINK FLOYD engineer. Since coming together again, two or three years ago almost by accident - Colin and Rod have performed extensively in Japan, Europe and America, always to acclaim. The Chicago Tribune's review during the 2002 US tour was typical, writing of "warmth bordering on hysteria, the aura still remains!".
