Reviews & Ratings
Barry McGuire stepped into the public eye in 1962 on the Andy Williams Show as the gravelly voiced lead singer of The New Christy Minstrels. He launched his musical career with the million-sellers “Green Green” and “Green Back Dollar.” In 1965, at the heart of the peace movement, McGuire went solo. His growing awareness of social hypocrisy was expressed in his third hit “Eve of Destruction” which echoed around the world as an anthem of the times. Three years later, Barry was cast as the male lead in the original Broadway production of “Hair.” Once again his voice was heard proclaiming the ideals of a radical generation. Dick Clark says, “When world events collide with ‘Rock & Roll,’ you get Barry McGuire.”
John’s vocal and instrumental talents have kept him in the company of such musical luminaries as Roger McGuinn, Gene Clark, Clarence White, Nicky Hopkins, Mac Rebenack (Dr. John,) Doug Sahm (The Sir Douglas Quintet,) The Mamas and Papas, Johnny Rivers, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Rick Danko and Richard Manuel (The Band) … and many others.
