Colin Blunstone is an original member and frontman of the legendary 1960s English rock band The Zombies.  The group's first single "She's Not There," was a worldwide hit that reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1964 and is included on Rolling Stone magazine's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list.  The band also scored a hit with their single "Tell Her No," in 1965 which reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 as well.  Their second and final album Odessey and Oracle is widely recognized as a masterpiece and has been named one of the greatest albums ever made by multiple publications including the NME, Mojo, Q, The Guardian, Rolling Stone magazine and many more.  The album was recorded by Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick at Abbey Road Studios on the same tape machine used on Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.  Colin has also released 10 studio albums as a critically acclaimed solo artist.  He is currently on tour with the other original members of The Zombies celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the recording of Odessey and Oracle in which they will perform the album in its entirety for its final time.
