Argent

After the Zombies broke up, keyboardist/songwriter Rod Argent formed his own band in 1969, which incorporated more classical, jazz, and art rock influences in accordance with Argent's musical training. The group's other members were guitarist/songwriter Russ Ballard, bassist Jim Rodford, and drummer Bob Henrit. Argent's first two albums, Argent and Ring of Hands, received a fair amount of critical acclaim, but their real breakthrough came with 1972's All Together Now, which contained the Top Five smash "Hold Your Head Up"; In Deep produced a minor hit in "God Gave Rock 'N' Roll to You," which was covered by Kiss in 1992. By 1974, Ballard had developed his songwriting talents enough to leave for a solo career (Three Dog Night had a Top Ten single in 1971 with his "Liar," from Argent), and was replaced by guitarist John Verity and string player John Grimaldi. Without Ballard, the group lost its focus and indulged its tendencies toward extended art rock passages and improvisational solos to somewhat excessive levels. Argent broke up in 1976; Rodford joined the Kinks, while Argent himself recorded several solo albums and became a record producer, working with Tanita Tikaram, among others. ~ Steve Huey

I disagree with the reviewer that The Zombies were underappreci a t e d . They got plenty of airtime in the 60's and continue to today proving that good music endures.

These kats peerformed with Kiss, believe it or not. At the Omni, in Shererville Indiana. How did these two bands get mixed together; anyway both were great, infact I remember thinking that Argent should have headlined instead of the other way.

I was into prog back then, and Argent really impressed me.

I can see and hear why they were overlooked. I hope to do neither ever again. Pandora why ask the person to design their radio and then play crap like this?
