Hall of Fame Essay

2019

This year’s induction of the Zombies into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is at once a celebration and a culmination of one of the oddest and most convoluted careers in the history of popular music.

While not the first band to have two smash hits right out of the box, they may be the only group who proceeded to then fail miserably with their next ten singles over a three-year period before finally achieving immortality with an album, Odessey and Oracle (1968) and a single, “Time of the Season,” that were released only after they had broken up.
