♫ Music Monday ♫
For this edition, we’re going back about 50 years, to that music era known as the “British Invasion”. This is a continuing series.
The British Invasion was a phenomenon that occurred in the mid-1960s when rock and pop music acts from the United Kingdom, as well as other aspects of British culture, became popular in North America. The arrival of The Beatles in the U.S., and subsequent appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, (1964) marked the start of the British Invasion. – Wikipedia
Fronted by Reg Presley, they were from the town of Andover in southern England and originally called the Troglodytes. Other band members: Chris Britton (Lead guitar), Pete Staples (Bass guitar) and Ronnie Bond (Drums).
And, of course, who doesn’t know this one?
