So that must make the twin pillars of the Zombies, Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent, well, a bit more than simply OAPs. And their current band features surely the world's oldest extant bass player.
Colin and Rod, though, are still lean and mean - and magnificent musicians. When a band with big nostalgia value starts playing their new material, it's usually time to head home. But the Zombies' new stuff packs a punch - they play all the back catalogue as well, and that means 'Time of the Season', 'Whenever You're Ready', and some of the material from solo careers - Colin Blunstone still has a wonderful, at times, aethereal, voice - and Rod Argent is a great rock and roll keyboards guy. And they give every impression of enjoying themselves on stage.
So altogether, the Zombies are a neat band - good live - and you'd never guess that they have already had their golden anniversary.
