Introducing our Patron Colin Blunstone
Colin appeared on several albums by The Alan Parsons Project including Eye in the Sky, where he sings the hit single Old And Wise, and Ammonia Avenue. In 1984, he joined with other Parsons musicians to form Keats.
Colin has occasionally ventured into acting. He was in The Savages (2001) and Keep the Aspidistra Flying (1997) both as a singer. Other TV appearances include The Dan and Dusty Show (2004) as The Zombies, Shindig! Presents British Invasion Vol. 2 (1992) also as The Zombies, and Pop Quiz (1982). His sole film part was in Bunny Lake Is Missing (1965) a movie directed by Otto Preminger (as The Zombies) and starring Laurence Olivier.
Colin still tours to this day, sometimes on his own, occasionally in tours with 1960s bands such as Manfred Mann - and most often with his old Zombies colleague Rod Argent. Some of his recent albums are As Far As I Can See, the mid 1990s Echo Bridge and Out of the Shadows (with Rod Argent).
His solo album, The Ghost of You And Me was released in 2009 and Colin is working on a new solo album to be released in late 2012 and will later tour with his band. Colin continues to tour with Rod Argent as The Zombies, and the original surviving members of The Zombies played four reunion concerts performing Odessey and Oracle, in April 2009 to rave reviews, the cult album being recently voted No.32 in the Top 100 all-time albums.
Colin, a shy gentleman by nature, eschewed the rock and roll life-style of so many of his contemporaries, and lives with his wife Suzy and their daughter in Surrey.
