I Love You || The Zombies
Happy 69th birthday to one of my favourite and most underrated drummer!! Just listen to his drumming in “Is this the dream” or “i’ll Keep Trying” among others ..amazing!!!Happy Birthday Hugh!!
Happy 70th Birthday Chris, I love you and your joy and excitment!!
Because no matter how excited you all are, you’ll never be as excited as Chris White!
Happy birthday to the guy who brings sexy back to glasses, and who is also an amazing songwriter, Incredible bass player, bread pudding lover, and probably the most excited and amazing person to ever exist: Mr. Chris “too awesome for words” White!!!!!
In order to celebrate Chris’s birthday here are some pics I took a few weeks ago in the town of Markyate in Hertfordshire, where Chris spent most of his youngers days. Although he was born in Barnet, now part of Northern London, his parents moved to Markyate when he was a child. They owned the local grocery shop there and it is still there up to this day. You can see the HIgh Street where Chris used to live and that White house is where Chris spent most of his childhood and where some Zombies demos have been recorded in the 60’s. Also this is the house where he would probably write many of the early Zombies songs. Located at the front of the house is the local grocery shop that once was owned by Chris’s father. Then you have the way that leads to Beechwood Park school and you can see a bit of the ” the green of the country lanes” that he described in the song “Beechwood Park” and where he says he used to say that he “learnt how to drive” in one of those lanes, and finally a view of the Beechwood Park, which inspired him to write the song of the same name.
Love letters to The Zombies Part 3.
Happy birthday to Christopher Taylor White!
We were going to split up in 1964 but a contest came up at Watford town hall. When we won we thought we’d try it for a year. We didn’t think of it as a full-time career. With She’s Not There we were in the right place at the right time with the right song. It went to number one in the [US] Cashbox charts. We kind of took it for granted because we were so young and naive

Happy Birthday Chris!! I wish you many and many and many years of good health and happiness!!! Thank you for all the amazing songs!
CNN’s The Sixties: British Invasion was so much fun to watch, I couldn’t help but draw little cartoons of each influential band. (I’ll post individuals later tomorrow)
