Jefferson Starship was disappointing, in that the quality of the performance was spotty. Very poor stage presence, except for Kathy Richardson, who saved the show with her great vocals.
Rod Argent is amazing. He pulls the Zombies together to make a very professional and entertaining show.
Both bands suffered from acoustic distortion. Volume was higher than the room and equipment could handle and did not produce a clean sound. Otherwise the overall service of the Grove made for a pleasant experience.
Quotes & Highlights
- "The Zombies, still led by original keyboard wizard Rod Argent and featuring the smoked-silk vocals of Colin Blunstone, is the finest British-invasion-era band still touring that doesn't have Mick Jagger as a frontman." --Washington Times
British invasion icons The Zombies will co-headline one night at the Grove of Anaheim with psychedelic rock's Jefferson Starship.
In the 60's The Zombies were one of the few English bands that enjoyed true global popularity, with two American number ones, chart records throughout the rest of the world, and a deep and lasting affection for their music. Their 1968 album Odessey and Oracle, comprising twelve songs by the group's principal songwriters, Argent and Chris White, is now considered one of the best of its time and is ranked 80 on Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Their U.S. tour of 2007 garnered stellar reviews.
Jefferson Starship was among the most successful arena rock bands of the 1970s and early '80s, an even greater commercial entity than its predecessor, Jefferson Airplane, the band out of which it evolved. Unlike Jefferson Airplane, which valued the individual expression of its members, however bizarre, Jefferson Starship was interested in making commercial music, and now prevails as one of the most critically acclaimed touring acts today. Jefferson Starship features a cast of old and new players, including songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Paul Kantner, vocalist Marty Balin, both of whom founded Jefferson Airplane and were crucial in developing the renowned "San Francisco Sound" that changed the course of pop music forever.
