ZOMBIES: New York Book Signing

Two nights before kicking off their Odessey and Oracle reunion tour, the four surviving '60s members of The Zombies were at New York's Strand bookstore to discuss their history with fans.

Colin Blunstone, Rod Argent, Chris White and Hugh Grundy shared stories about recording at Abbey Road -- even borrowing John Lennon's mellotron (an early electronic keyboard); credited original bassist Paul Arnold (now an Edmonton, Canada physician) for coining the band's name, and how "Time of the Season" was recorded the same day they finished writing it.

The event was the official launch for their book Odessey, a photo and text history of the band with handwritten lyrics for 22 of their songs -- including the entire playlist of the Odessey and Oracle album.

There are also written contributions from fellow rock icons such as Tom Petty (who penned the foreword), Brian Wilson, Carlos Santana, Graham Nash and Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles.
