Rick Springfield Blues

(Gibson) Rick Springfield has reformed his classic late '60s blues-rock band, The Zoot, to perform on the Rick Springfield and Friends cruise, which departs from Miami, Florida in November.

Formed in Adelaide, Australia, in 1965, The Zoot's biggest hit was a rocked-up cover of The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby." After the band broke up, in 1971, Springfield went on to find fame as an actor, solo artist and forlorn admirer of "Jessie's Girl." Bass player Beeb Birtles co-founded The Little River Band, and vocalist Darryl Cotton went on to television infamy as host of the Early Bird Show segment during which an enraged red kangaroo brutally attacked suited television character Marty the Monster. You can't make this stuff up.

Birtles told Undercover.fm he would switch to second guitar for the reunion shows. "Because I haven't played bass since Zoot split up I'll be playing electric guitar with Rick and the bass player in his band will substitute for me," he said. "I think Zoot's music with two electric guitars will sound even ballsier." more on this story
