Country Joe & The Fish were a Californian band who were famous for their anti-Vietnam War stance in the 1960s, and lead singer 'Country' Joe McDonald's solo acoustic version of 'I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-To-Die Rag', at the 1969 Woodstock Festival, remains an iconic moment in rock and popular music.

The band's name came from 'Country' Joe McDonald and lead guitarist Barry 'The Fish' Melton, and they were one of the pioneers of psychedelic music, especially with their 1967 album, 'Electric Music For The Mind And Body'. Country Joe & The Fish also played the prestigious Monterey Pop Festival of 1967.

Both Joe and Barry have good hearts, and are still trying to make the world a better place - for humans, animals, and the environment. See what they're up to...

Fronted by ol' rubberneck himself, Reg Presley, The Troggs are fondly remembered for a number of great songs, including, of course, 'Wild Thing' and 'Love Is All Around', plus other classics such as 'With A Girl Like You', 'I Can't Control Myself', and 'Anyway That You Want Me'.

The Troggs were successful on both sides of the Atlantic, with their mixture of cheeky humour, and, in turns, abrasive and sweet sound.

The Turtles, originally The Tyrtles, were an American group popular in the 1960s for their rich harmonies and memorable tunes. The Bob Dylan song, 'It Ain't Me Babe', gave The Turtles their first American top 10 in the summer of 1965, but their golden year was 1967, with the hits 'She'd Rather Be With Me' and 'Happy Together' - the latter being a number one in the US. Also memorable were the silly lines in their songs, i.e. "So happy together/How is the weather? (Happy Together)", and "I think you're groovy/Let's go to a movie (Elenore)".
