Title: Brian Wilson and The Zombies Collaboration?
Post by: baseball95 on March 26, 2019, 04:03:05 PM
Was listening to an interview with The Zombies as they get ready to go into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and at 49:50 or so (link below) keyboard player Rod Argent mentions the band is collaborating with Brian in some fashion but they canít reveal many details.

I wonder what this could be? An album? A tour? A song? I donít know but itís pretty exciting for me.
My money would be on a joint tour but who knows. How about a tour with Pet Sounds and Odyssey and Oracle played in full! Now that would be simply amazing.

Holy sh*t this would be awesome! Besides Rod being a cool guy (so is Colin for that matter), the Zombies may just be the best overlooked-during-their-time band of the 60s, bar none

Very interesting. I have no desire to see Brian perform Pet Sounds again, but I'd be down for a best of setlist from both.

If they performed together Iíd be there in a heartbeat. If they recorded together man that would be ace.

Nothing on Brian's site, but apparently this is happening in Utah.

In an April 10 interview with Ken Sharp of Rock Cellar, founding Zombies bassist-songwriter Chris White was asked, "Are there any plans for the original lineup of The Zombies minus the late Paul Atkinson to do any future show?"

Chris White: "Yes, Iím hearing rumors we might be playing again and doing a tour with Brian Wilson. I canít give any more details now but Iím hearing some pretty good rumors. (laughs) I would look forward to that because anything Brian Wilson did was so inventive and Pet Sounds was one of my favorite albums."
